King of Saxony Friedrich August I


King of Saxony, Duke of Warsaw and Elector of Saxony, known as "The Just" ("der Gerechte"). He was the second (but eldest surviving) son of Friedrich Christian, Elector of Saxony, and Maria Antonia of Bavaria.

In Mannheim on 17 January 1769 (by proxy) and again in Dresden on 29 January 1769 (in person), Frederick Augustus married the Countess Palatine (Pfalzgräfin) Amalie of Zweibrücken-Birkenfeld, sister of King Maximilian I Joseph of Bavaria. During their marriage, Amalia gave birth to four children, but only one daughter survived to adulthood. He died on 5 May 1827 aged 76.
