  • Princess of Wales


Louise of Great Britain (7 December 1724 – 19 December 1751) was the youngest surviving daughter of George II and Caroline of Ansbach, and became queen consort of Denmark and Norway.

HRH Princess Louise of Wales was born, fifth daughter and youngest child of George, Prince of Wales and Caroline of Ansbach, on 7 December 1724, at Leicester House, London. She was baptised there on 22 December.

On 11 June 1727, when Louise was two years old, her grandfather, George I, died, and her father ascended the throne as George II. As a child of the sovereign, she became automatically entitled to the style HRH The Princess Louise.

She married the Prince Frederick of Denmark and Norway, on 11 December 1743, and took the courtesy style of HRH Princess Frederick of Denmark and Norway. The couple had seven children, two of whom did not survive birth.

When her husband ascended the throne, on 6 August 1746, as Frederick V, she became queen consort, thus becoming known as HM The Queen of Denmark and Norway.

Louise died on 19 December 1751, in Christiansborg, predeceasing her husband by fourteen years, and was buried at Roskilde Cathedral.
