German prince, the fifth of the six children born to Georg Albrecht of Brandenburg-Bayreuth-Kulmbach by his first wife, Marie. From his father's second marriage with Sophie Marie of Solms-Baruth-Wildenfels, Christian Heinrich had a half-brother, Georg Albrecht, who was born three months after the death of his father in 1666. Heavily indebted, Christian Heinrich signed, in 1703, the Contract of Schönberg. Under the terms of this treaty, he renounced his succession rights over the Franconian estates of the House of Hohenzollern (the principalities of Ansbach and Bayreuth) in favour of Prussia. He died on 5 April 1708, aged 46, at Weferlingen.
