German steel manufacturer of the company Krupp.
Krupp's father was Alfred Krupp. In 1887, Friedrich took over the leadership of his father's company. Under his direction, the business experienced enormous expansion resulting from the rise of the German navy and the demand for armour plate. Krupp acquired the Germania shipbuilding yards at Kiel in 1902.
He married Margarethe Krupp. They had two daughters. Krupp loved the Italian island of Capri, where he often lived for some months in each year. His hobby was Oceanography. He met Felix Anton Dohrn and Ignazio Cerio on Capri.
On 15 November 1902 the Social Democratic magazine Vorwärts claimed in an article that Friedrich Alfred Krupp was homosexual, that he had a number of liaisons with local boys and men and that his fondest attachment was to Adolfo Schiano, an 18-year-old barber and amateur musician. A week later, on 22 November 1902, Krupp committed suicide.
