Prince of Prussia Eitel Friedrich (as captain of the First Regiment of Foot Guards, Potsdam)


German royalty, the second son of Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany by his first wife, Augusta Viktoria of Schleswig-Holstein.

On 27 February 1906 Prince Eitel married Duchess Sophia Charlotte of Oldenburg (2 February 1879 Oldenburg – 29 March 1964 Westerstede) in Berlin. They were divorced 20 October 1926 and had no children.

Raised at the cadet corps of Plön Castle, Prince Eitel was in the front line from the beginning of World War I and was wounded at Bapaume, where he commanded the Prussian First Foot Guards. The following year he was transferred to the Eastern Front and during the Summer of 1915 was out in a field in Russia when he had a chance encounter with Manfred von Richthofen who had just crashed with his superior officer, Count Holck. The two men were hiding in a nearby tree line from what they thought was the advancing Russian army and who turned out to be the grenadiers, guardsmen, and officers of Prince Eitel.

After the war he was engaged in monarchistic circles and the Stahlhelm paramilitary organization. In 1921 the Berlin criminal court found him guilty of fraudulent transfer of 300,000 Mark and sentenced him to a fine of 5000 Mark.

From 1907 to 1926 he was Master of the Knights (Herrenmeister) of the Order of St. John (Johanniterorden). He received the Pour le Mérite in 1915. He died on 8 December 1942 in Potsdam.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes a horoscope published by Ernst Mauer in 1891 in "Velhagen & Klasings Monatshefte" Volume 22, Issue 1 (1908), p. 538: "benütze ich, selbst nicht gelehrt und klug genug in solchen Dingen, «ms einem Werke von Ernst Mauer, „Handbuch der Astrologie" (R. v. Deckeis Verlag, Berlin 1891), dem ich hier in vielen Stücken gefolgt bin und das die Sache völlig objektiv behandelt, ein für einen in Potsdam am 7. Juli 1883 morgens 6 Uhr geborenen Knaben gestelltes Horoskop. Wer dieser Knabe war, wird in dem Buche nicht gesagt, aber die preußische Genealogie verrät uns, daß es Prinz Eitel Friedrich war."

Scholfield also quotes "Germany," The Times, 9 July 1883, p. 5: "Berlin, July 8. Queen Victoria was again made a great grand-mother on Saturday morning by the birth of another son to Prince and princess William of Prussia."

On 13 January 2017, Scholfield changed the rating from B to A, quoting from "Berliner Börsenzeitung," 7 July 1883, p. 1: "Telegraphische Depeschen. Potsdam, 7. Juli. (C. T. C.) Ihre Königliche Hoheit die Prinzessin Wilhelm ist heute früh nach 6 Uhr von einem Prinzen glücklich entbunden worden" (happily gave birth this morning at 6 AM).
