Amalie, Princess of Fürstenberg (Amalie Christina Caroline; née Baroness Amalie of Hochberg, formerly Countess Amalie of Hochberg and Princess Amalie of Baden; 26 January 1795 - 14 September 1869) was the consort of Charles Egon II, Prince of Fürstenberg.


Baroness Amalie of Hochberg was born on 26 January 1795 in Karlsruhe to Charles Frederick, Grand Duke of Baden, and his second wife, Louise Caroline of Hochberg. Her parents' marriage was morganatic, and so Amalie was born without princely status and excluded from the dynastic line of the House of Zähringen. She was accorded her mother's baronial status until 1796, when her mother was made Countess of Hochberg, at which time she assumed comital rank.

Amalie's half-brother's son, Charles, Grand Duke of Baden, elevated her and her siblings to dynastic status in 1817, granting them princely rank and status with the style of Grand Ducal Highness.[1]

On 19 April 1818 she married Charles Egon II of Fürstenberg, becoming the princess consort of Fürstenberg.[2]

Amalie and Charles Egon II had seven children:[3]

Amalie died on 14 September 1869.
