Eldest son of George II, Frederick Louis was born in Hanover, and came to live in England when he was 21. He was expected to succeed his father to the throne, but died aged only 46. His son George III carried on the royal Honoverian line.

Frederick Louis visited Bath in 1738, and an obelisk was erected to commemorate this.
