Herzog Carl von Braunschweig-Bevern was the eldest son of Ferdinand Albert II, Duke of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel. In 1733 he married Philippine Charlotte, daughter of King Frederick William I of Prussia and sister of Frederick the Great. Herzog Carl's sister, Elisabeth Christine, was married to Frederick the Great. Herzog Carl fought alongside his brother-in-law throughout the Seven Years War, and is likley that this service was obtained, either at his own instigation or as a present from Frederick the Great, at some point during or after the fighting over Dresden, which took place sporadically over the years from 1756-60. Herzog Carl founded the Fürstenberg porcelain factory in 1747.
