Prince of Sweden Fredrik Adolf (1770)


Swedish duke, described as "the most beautiful Prince in Europe," who never married and had no task in his life other than the ceremonial, and spent his life wasting money and involving himself in love affairs.

He was the youngest son of King Adolf Fredrik of Sweden and Luisa Ulrike of Prussia, a sister of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. He was given the title Duke of Östergötland on 8 September 1772 and the Tullgarn Palace as his residence.

Fredrik was made colonel in 1762, general major in 1768, general lieutenant in 1774, commander of the Västmanland regiment in 1775 and field marshal in 1792.

In 1800, Fredrik Adolf left Sweden for health reasons and travelled to Germany and then to France. He died in Montpellier, France on 12 December 1803, aged 53.
