Generaloberst m.d.R. GFM
The eldest son of Grand Duke Friedrich I.
and Grand Duchess Luise von Baden, Friedrich II. succeeded his father in
1907 as royal head of the Grand Duchy. Friedrich II. was rather
well-liked as a leader and continued his father's progressive policies
until the so-called November Revolution of 1918 forced his
abdication. As head of Baden's military forces, he also served as a
colonel general with the rank of field marshal, attaining that status in
September 1918. He died in August 1928 and is buried in Badenweiler.
