Prince Karl Anton August of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck (10 August 1727, in Marburg – 12 September 1759, in Stettin) was the son of Peter August, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck and Princess Sophie of Hesse-Philippsthal.

Marriage and issue[edit]

On 30 May 1754, Anton (as he was known) married Countess Frederica Charlotte of Dohna-Schlodien in Leistenau (3 July 1738 - 21 April 1785) in Königsberg. The couple had one child:

Anton would have inherited the dukedom of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck had it not been for his early death of wounds received at the Battle of Kunersdorf.[1] His father Peter outlived him, so the dukedom was passed on from Peter to Anton's only son, Friedrich.
