Hereditary Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar Karl August (circa 1890)


German prince and Hereditary Grand Duke (Erbgroßherzog) of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach.

He was the only son of Karl Alexander, Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach and Princess Sophie of the Netherlands. Because his mother was a daughter of King Willem II of the Netherlands and his older uncles, except King Willem III, died childless, Karl August was second in line in the succession to the throne of the Netherlands from 1890 to 1894. He was preceded only by his mother.

In Friedrichshafen on 26 August 1873 Karl August married Princess Pauline of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach. They were second cousins, and they had two sons.

Karl August died on 20 November 1894, aged 50, at Cap Martin, France, six years before his father; because of this, his eldest son Wilhelm Ernst succeeded his grandfather as Grand Duke.
