Princess Viktoria of Prussia (Frederica Amalia Wilhelmine Viktoria) (April 12, 1866 – November 13, 1929) was the second daughter of Frederick III of Germany (1831-1888) and his wife, the former Princess Victoria, Princess Royal, later Empress Victoria of Germany (1840-1901) daughter of Queen Victoria. To the public she was always Princess Viktoria, and in the family she was called Moretta or Young Vicky.

Like her sisters, Queen Sophia of Greece and Princess Margarete (Mossy), Viktoria was devoted to her mother and embraced English ways. As a young woman, Viktoria fell in love with Prince Alexander of Battenberg, who became Prince Alexander I of Bulgaria. Her parents wanted the couple to marry, but Viktoria's grandfather, Emperor Wilhelm I and his chancellor, Otto von Bismarck were opposed to the match. She ended up marrying Prince Adolf of Schaumburg-Lippe on 19 November 1890. The marriage was childless.
