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
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:
- Friedrich Karl Ludwig, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck (20 August 1757 - 24 April 1816)
Anton would have inherited the dukedom of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck had it not been for his early death. His father Peter outlived him, so the dukedom was passed on from Peter to Anton's only son Friedrich.
