  Frederick, Prince of Wales - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prince Frederick Louis, the grandson of the then Elector of Hanover (later King George I of Great Britain) and Sophia of Celle, was born in Hanover, Germany as Duke Friedrich Ludwig of Brunswick-Lüneburg.
Frederick and his group supported the Opera of the Nobility in Lincoln's Inn Fields as a rival to Handel's royally-sponsored opera at the King’s Theatre in Drury Lane.
Frederick was a genuine lover of music who played the cello; he enjoyed the natural sciences and the arts, and became a thorn in the side of his parents, thwarting their every ambition and making a point of opposing them in everything, according to the court gossip Lord Hervey.

 Talk:Frederick, Prince of Wales - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most of the early hits on '"Frederick" "Prince of Wales" -Lewis -Louis' on Google are for James I's eldest son Henry Frederick, but that might only mean I'm excluding instances where "Lewis" or "Louis" is mentioned at some point, but not in the title.
We don't generally have princes and princesses listed by their full names (except where necessary for disambiguation), because the middle names are rarely used.
Frederick Lewis, Prince of Wales was the only man of that name ever to hold the title Prince of Wales.

The Welsh regalia (Crown Jewels associated with the Princes of Wales) used at the investitures in 1911 and 1969 are on loan to the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff.

It was appropriate that the Prince and his influential circle patronised such immigrant artists as Jean-Baptiste Van Loo, as — quite unlike his father King George II - Frederick Prince of Wales was a great amateur of painting, and at his court he encouraged a wide circle of artists and designers.
When Frederick was finally permitted to come to England at his father’s accession in 1727 it became swiftly apparent that his relationship with George II was to be flawed by the same mistrust and jealousy as that between the previous King and his heir.

As for Prince Frederick's mother, Queen Caroline, a sensible, intelligent though sarcastic and manipulative woman, the daughter of the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach, she could not bear the sight of the `avaricious, sordid monster'.
She was rather taller than Prince Frederick, by then created Prince of Wales, would have wished, shy, reserved and a little awkward in her movements, by no means pretty, rather prim and rather boring; but it was generally agreed that she was good-natured and unaffected.
The Prince of Wales was told to vacate his apartments as soon as the Princess had recovered from her labour and not to presume to re-enter any part of the King's palaces.
