Duke of York and Albany Frederick


Prince of the United Kingdom, Duke of York and Albany, and a member of the House of Hanover, as the second eldest child and second son of King George III of the United Kingdom. From the death of his father in 1820 until his own death on 5 January 1827, he was the heir presumptive to his elder brother, King George IV, both to the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of Hanover.

Frederick was thrust into the British army at a very early age, appointed to high command at the age of 30, and commanded in a notoriously ineffectual campaign during the War of the First Coalition, which followed the French Revolution. Later, as Commander-in-Chief, he reorganised the British army, putting in place vital administrative and structural reforms.

On 29 September 1791 at Charlottenburg, Berlin, and again on 23 November 1791 at Buckingham Palace, Frederick married his cousin Princess Frederica Charlotte of Prussia, the daughter of King Frederick William II of Prussia and Elisabeth Christine of Brunswick-Lüneburg. The marriage was not a happy one and the couple soon separated. Frederica retired to Oatlands, where she lived until her death in 1820.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Domestic Occurrences," The Royal Magazine, August 1763, p. 108: "The Queen's Palace, St. James's Park, Aug. 16, 1763. This morning about ten o'clock, the Queen was happily delivered of a Prince . . . immediately known by the firing of the Tower guns." Scholfield quotes same data in a biography: "An Illustration of the Liturgy of the Church of England" by Thomas Pruen (Rivington, 1820), p. 153: "HRH Frederick, their Majesties second son, was born August 16, 1763, about 10 in the morning."
