Fürst August zu Hohenlohe-Öhringen

Frederick August Charles, Prince of Hohenlohe-Öhringen (27 November 1784 in Breslau – 15 February 1853 at Slawentzitz Castle) was a German general of the Napoleonic Wars and nobleman of the house of Hohenlohe.

In August 1806 his family's lands were assigned by the German Mediatisation process to the new Kingdom of Württemberg.

In 1811 he married Luise, sister of Duke Eugen of Württemberg (1788–1857), a member of the Württemberg royal family. Their son, Hugo zu Hohenlohe-Öhringen, was the father of Princess Margarethe of Hohenlohe-Öhringen (b. Slawentzitz, 27 December 1865 - d. Dresden, 13 June 1940), second wife of Wilhelm, Count of Hohenau (himself a morganatic son of Prince Albert of Prussia).

In 1820–35 he was elected chairman of the "Kammer der Standesherren" (Upper House) of the Estates of Württemberg.
