Friederike of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg (circa 1750)


German noblewoman of the House of Wettin by birth and by marriage Duchess of Saxe-Weissenfels.

She was the fifteenth of nineteen children born from the marriage of Friedrich II, Duke of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg and Magdalena Augusta of Anhalt-Zerbst. From her eighteen older and younger siblings, only eight survive adulthood.

In Altenburg on 27 November 1734, Fredericka married Prince Johann Adolf of Saxe-Weissenfels as his second wife. Two years later (1736), Johann Adolf inherited the paternal domains after the death of his older brother. The union produced five children, all of them died in infancy.

She died on 2 May 1775, aged 59, in Fredericka's Castle, Langensalza.
