Johann Friedrich, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach (October 18, 1654 – March 22, 1686), succeeded his father Albrecht V as margrave in 1667. He married his second wife Eleanor Erdmuthe Louise of Saxe-Eisenach on November 4, 1681. Their daughter Wilhelmine Charlotte Caroline, Margravine of Brandenburg-Ansbach (Caroline of Ansbach) married George II of Great Britain before he became king.
The Principality of Ansbach (German: Fürstentum Ansbach) or Brandenburg-Ansbach was a reichsfrei principality in the Holy Roman Empire centered on the Bavarian city of Ansbach. The ruling Hohenzollern princes of the land were known as margraves, as the principality was a margravate (but not a march).
