Three quarter portrait of Frederick (Friedrich) Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth (1711 -1763), wearing armour, cloak, sash and holding a baton. He was a member of the House of Hohenzollern and Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth and eldest son of Georg Frederick Karl, nominal Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth-Kulmbach (1688-1735), by his wife Dorothea of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck (1685-1761). His name has been added to the official name of the University of Erlangen, which he founded in 1743: the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) (English: University of Erlangen-Nuremberg). Gottfried Eichler the Younger (1715-1770) was an engraver active in Augsburg and son of German painter and draughtsman Gottfried the Elder (1677-1759).
