Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach Wilhelm Friedrich


German nobleman, who was Margrave of the Principality of Brandenburg-Ansbach from 1703 until his death on 7 January 1723. He was the younger brother of Caroline of Ansbach and thus brother-in-law of George II of Great Britain. His parents were John Frederick, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach, and his second wife, Eleonore Erdmuthe of Saxe-Eisenach. His two surviving half-brothers, Margraves Christian Albert and George Frederick II, both died unmarried and without legitimate issue. He married his first cousin, Christiane Charlotte of Württemberg-Winnental. He died in Unterreichenbach and was succeeded by his son Charles William Frederick, called "The Wild Margrave".

Translation: Marggraf Wilhelm Friedrich ... was born into the world at Onolzbach [Ansbach] on 29 Dec. 1685 in the afternoon between two and three o'clock.
