English: Friederike Sophie Wilhelmine, Princess of Prussia (July 3, 1709 - October 14, 1758), was a daughter of Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia and his Queen consort Sophia Dorothea of Hanover. In 1731 she was married to Frederick (Friedrich), Markgraf of Brandenburg-Bayreuth. The baroque buildings and parks built during her reign constitute much of the present appearance of the town of Bayreuth, Germany.
