Biography

HM Frederick, Prince of Wales (Frederick Louis; 1 February 1707 – 20 March 1751), was a member of the House of Hanover and therefore of the Hanoverian and later British Royal Family, the eldest son of George II and father of George III, as well as the great-grandfather of Queen Victoria. Under the Act of Settlement passed by the English Parliament in 1701, Frederick was in the direct line of succession to the British throne. He moved to Great Britain following the accession of his father, and was created Prince of Wales. He predeceased his father George II, however, and upon the latter's death on 25 October 1760, the throne passed to Prince Frederick's eldest son, George, Prince of Wales, who reigned as King George III from 1760 until 1820.

Hi James, I am not sure why you created this duplicate profile. It must have come up as a match with your other one, but you rejected it as a match. You should have not proceeded to create this profile.
