Queen of Denmark and Norway. Her parents were markgraf Christian Heinrich von Brandenburg-Kulmbach and markgräfin Sophie Christiana, born countess von Wolfstein zu Obersulzbürg. 1721 married to crownprince Christian of Denmark-Norway, later king Christian VI, on Castle Pretzsch in Saxony. She gave birth to 2 children: king Frederik V and duchess Louise von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The Queen was deeply religious and was influenced by the religious movement of pietism with its personal faith and piety. The queen never gained any positive contact with the people - because of her religious and rigid personality.
