German prince of the House of Ascania and ruler of the principality of Anhalt-Dessau from 7 August 1693 until his death on 7 April 1747. He was also a Generalfeldmarschall in the Prussian army. Nicknamed "the Old Dessauer" (German: der alte Dessauer), he possessed only modest abilities as a field commander, but was a talented drillmaster who modernized the Prussian infantry.
He married Anna Louise Föhse in Dessau on 8 September 1698. The couple had ten children. In later life, Leopold sired two illegitimate sons by Sophie Eleonore Söldner.
