    Early life

    Prince Fred­er­ick Lewis was born on 1 Feb­ru­ary 1707 in Hanover, Holy Roman Em­pire (Ger­many), as Duke Friedrich Lud­wig of Brunswick-Lüneb­urg, to Prince George, son of George, Elec­tor of Hanover, who was also one of Fred­er­ick's two god­fa­thers. The Elec­tor was the son of Sophia of Hanover, grand­daugh­ter of James VI and I and first cousin and heir pre­sump­tive to Queen Anne of Great Britain. How­ever, Sophia died be­fore Anne at age 83 in June 1714, which el­e­vated the Elec­tor t...

    Prince of Wales

    The mo­tives for the ill-feel­ing be­tween Fred­er­ick and his par­ents may in­clude the fact that he had been set up by his grand­fa­ther, even as a small child, as the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the House of Hanover, and was used to pre­sid­ing over of­fi­cial oc­ca­sions in the ab­sence of his par­ents. He was not per­mit­ted to go to Great Britain until after his fa­ther took the throne as George IIon 11 June 1727. Fred­er­ick had con­tin­ued to be known as Prince Friedrich Lud­wig of Hanover...

    Patron of the arts

    A per­ma­nent re­sult of Fred­er­ick's pa­tron­age of the arts is "Rule, Bri­tan­nia!", one of the best-known British pa­tri­otic songs. It was com­posed by the Eng­lish com­poser Thomas Arne and writ­ten by the Scot­tish poet and play­wright James Thom­son as part of the masque Al­fred which was first per­formed on 1 Au­gust 1740 at Clive­den, the coun­try home of the Prince and Princess of Wales. Thomas Arne was also one of Fred­er­ick's favourite artists. A masque link­ing the Prince with...

    1717: Knight of the Garter


    Be­tween his cre­ation as Duke of Ed­in­burgh in 1726 and his cre­ation as Prince of Wales, he bore the arms of the king­dom, dif­fer­en­ti­ated by a label ar­gent of three points, the cen­tre point bear­ing a cross gules. As Prince of Wales, the dif­fer­ence changed to sim­ply a label ar­gent of three points.Fred­er­ick never suc­ceeded his fa­ther as Trea­surer of the Holy Roman Em­pire and so the red es­cutcheon in the cen­tre of his Hanover quar­ter is empty.

    I can't see any reason why this article should have been moved from "Frederick, Prince of Wales" - the most commonly used name. As with all other princes and princesses, his middle names can be mentioned in the text. I intend to move it back unless anyone has any objection.

    I don't understand the statement: Frederick Lewis, Prince of Wales was the only man of that name ever to hold the title Prince of Wales.

    There are lots of references to Frederick being killed by a cricket ball, and only slightly fewer that mention a tennis ball. But as our own article on tennis mentions, tennis is known to have been invented in the mid 1800s, 100 years or more after Frederick's death. So I've edited to reflect these facts. - dmmaus 10:47, 6 Apr 2005 Tennis is in Shakespere, Ever hear of the Tennis Court Oath in Paris, 1789? [[Paul, in Saudi 10:54, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)]] Oh, yes.

    I've tagged the "titles and styles" section with an unreferencedsection template. What evidence is there that he was styled "Prince Frederick of Hanover" rather than "Duke Frederick of Brunswick-Lueneberg" in the period 1707-1714? And the article on Duke of Gloucester says he was styled by that title from 1718 until he was created Duke of Edinburgh. Opera hat 14:38, 7 August 2008
