Biography

Karl of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (30 September 1813 at Gottorp in Schleswig, Duchy of Schleswig – 24 October 1878 at Luisenlund, Glücksburg, in Schleswig-Holstein, Prussia) was the second Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg. Karl was the eldest son of Friedrich Wilhelm, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and Princess Louise Caroline of Hesse-Kassel and an elder brother of Christian IX of Denmark. Karl became Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg upon his father's death on 27 February 1831.

Karl married Princess Vilhelmine Marie of Denmark, daughter of Frederick VI of Denmark and his wife Marie Sophie of Hesse-Kassel, on 19 May 1838 at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark. Vilhelmine Marie was the former wife of Prince Frederick of Denmark (later Frederick VII of Denmark). He died on 24 October 1878 at age 65 at Luisenlund. Karl and Vilhelmine Marie died without issue.
