Prince of Saxe-Meiningen Friedrich (1914)


German soldier and member of the Ducal House of Saxe-Meiningen who died on active military service.

Prince Friedrich was the second son of Georg II, Duke of Saxe-Meiningen and his second wife Princess Feodora of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, a descendant of Diego Velázquez.

Prince Friedrich married Countess Adelaide of Lippe-Biesterfeld (later Princess of Lippe), daughter of Count Ernst of Lippe-Biesterfeld, in Neudorf on 24 April 1889. They had six children.

Prince Friedrich entered the army and was promoted to colonel in 1902, brigadier general in 1907 and major general in 1910 before retiring from the army in 1913.

With the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Prince Friedrich, despite suffering a broken arm a short while before hand, returned to active service. Friedrich met his death on 23 August 1914 while fighting in Tarcienne during the invasion of Belgium. He was struck by shrapnel or machine gun bullets when he left a house he was using as an observation post.
