Frederick Charles, Duke of Württemberg-Winnental


Frederick Charles, Duke of Württemberg-Winnental


Eberhard Ludwig "(right)"

Frederick Charles (Stuttgart, September 12 1652 – December 20 1697 in Stuttgart) was since 1677 Duke of the new-founded line of Württemberg-Winnental and regent of the infant Duke Eberhard Ludwig.

Frederick Charles was the second son of Eberhard III, Duke of Württemberg and Anna Catharina von Salm-Kyrburg.

On November 27 1677 he was given to regency over his nephew after the death of his older brother and with that the regency over Württemberg. This ended on January 22 1693 when Eberhard Ludwig reached the age of majority. Out of recognition he received a large sum of money and was appointed Generalfeldmarschall by the Kaiser.

Frederick Charles fought against the French on the Rhine in the War of the Grand Alliance under Louis William, Margrave of Baden-Baden. On September 27 1692, an imperial army unit of 4,000 cavalry men under his command was attacked by surprise in their camp in Oetisheim near Mühlacker. They withdrew hastily and lost several hundred men, either killed or captured by the French. The Duke himself was among the prisoners, but was released soon after.

He fell ill in 1696 and died the next year of Syphilis.

Marriage and Children

Frederick Charles married on October 31 1682 Eleonore Juliane von Brandenburg-Ansbach (1663-1724), daughter of Margrave Albrecht of Brandenburg-Ansbach.
