Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin Wilhelm


Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, as the second son of Hereditary Grand Duke Paul Friedrich of Mecklenburg and his wife Princess Alexandrine of Prussia, daughter of Friedrich Wilhelm III.

He enlisted in the Prussian army and became commander of the sixth regiment of cuirassiers. Wilhelm had a reputation for drunkenness and a dissolute character.

On 9 December 1865, he married Alexandrine of Prussia, daughter of Albert of Prussia and Marianne of Orange-Nassau. The marriage was unhappy and the couple had an only child: Charlotte (1868-1944) who married Prince Heinrich XVIII Reuss of Köstritz.

Wilhelm took part in the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 as a major general in command of a brigade of cavalry corps. He managed with difficulty to secure an unimportant command in the Prussian army during the Franco-Prussian War, but he was wounded on 9 September 1870 in Laon. As a result, he was long absent from the front and he showed a great lack of energy at the Battle of Le Mans. In 1873 he became commander of the 22nd Division in Kassel, completed in 1874 but it was only an honorary position. He died on 28 July 1879.
