She was the daughter of Duke Charles of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, and was married, Dec. 24, 1793, to the crown prince of Prussia, who succeeded to the throne in 1797 as Frederick William III. During the campaign of 1806 she accompanied him to Thurin-gia, and after the battle of Jena to Konigsberg. After the fatal battle of Friedland in 1807 she visited Napoleon at Tilsit, with a view of obtaining for Prussia favorable conditions of peace; but not succeeding in her negotiation, she joined her husband at Memel, and in 1808 returned with him to Konigsberg, from whence she proceeded at the end of the year to St. Petersburg. She went to Berlin in 1809, and died the next year while on a visit to her father at Strelitz. She was greatly beloved by the Prussian people. - See "The Life and Times of Louisa, Queen of Prussia," by Elizabeth Harriet Hudson (2 vols., London, 1874).
