Oldest son of king George II and his wife, Caroline of Ansbach. Both parents detested their son. Under the Act of Settlement passed by the English Parliament in 1701, Frederick was born fourth in the line of succession to the British throne, after his great-grandmother, paternal grandfather and father. He moved to Great Britain following the accession of his father, and was created Prince of Wales. He predeceased his father, however, and upon the latter's death on 25 October 1760, the throne passed to Prince Frederick's eldest son, George III.
