Prince of Prussia Carl (1852)


Prussian prince who served as a Prussian general for much of his adult life and became the first Herrenmeister (Grand Master) of the Order of Saint John after its restoration as a chivalric order. Nevertheless, he is perhaps remembered more often for his patronage of art and for his sizable and fine collections of art and armour.

He was a younger son of Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia and his wife Luise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

Prince Carl entered the Prussian army in 1811 at the age of ten, with the rank of lieutenant in a regiment of the guards. In 1820, he became a major in the First Regiment of Foot Guards. In 1822, he became colonel of the 12th Infantry Regiment. In 1824, he was promoted to major general. In 1830, he commanded the 2nd Guards Division. He was further promoted to lieutenant-general in 1832 and general of infantry in 1844. He served as Inspector-General (1848) and as Generalfeldzeugmeister and chief of the artillery (1854).

Carl served as Governor of Mainz from 1864–1866.

On 26 May 1827 in Charlottenburg, Carl married Princess Marie of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach. Carl and Marie had three children together.

He died in Berlin on 21 January 1883, aged 81.
