Frederick Charles

Frederick Charles, Prince (1828-85), was the nephew of the Emperor William through his father and of the Empress Augusta on his mother's side. He commanded the right wing of the Prussian army in the Danish War of 1864, won the battle of Sadowa in 1866, and, as head of the Second Army in the Franco-Gerenan War, conducted the operations which led to the surrender of Metz, after which he defeated the attempt of Chanzy to relieve Paris from the south. He was called the "Red Prince" from the colour of his favourite uniform. The Duke of Connaught married one of his daughters.
