He was the only son of Louis I, Prince of Anhalt-Köthen, by his first wife Amöena Amalie, daughter of Arnold III, Count of Bentheim-Steinfurt-Tecklenburg-Limburg.
A highly gifted boy, he was considered by contemporary witnesses to be "the hope for the political future of his country" (in the words of Kaspar von Teutleben).
The participation of Louis the Younger in the Académie des parfaits amants in Köthen on 1 March 1624 is doubtful, because he died fourteen days later, on 15 March, at the age of sixteen.
