Frederick was the eldest son of George II and his wife Caroline of Anspach. Both of his parents disliked him from an early age, and they did their best to reduce his influence as he grew older. They went as far as stopping his marriage to an important European princess and keeping his allowance to around one quarter of the amount it should have been. Frederick died before his father, so he never became king.
