Peter Friedrich Wilhelm, Duke of Oldenburg,[1][2] (3 January 1754, Eutin Castle, Eutin[1][2] – 2 July 1823, Schloss Plön, Plön.[1][2]) Wilhelm succeeded his father,[1][2] Frederick Augustus I, Duke of Oldenburg as the Duke of Oldenburg in 1785.[1][2] Wilhelm's mother was Princess Ulrike Friederike Wilhelmine of Hesse-Kassel.[1][2]

Due to mental illness, Wilhelm was duke in name only, with his cousin Peter, Prince-Bishop of Lübeck, acting as regent throughout his entire reign.

The title became a Grand Duke in 1815, but Wilhelm never used the elevated style. It was not used until 1829 by the son of Wilhelm's cousin and successor, Peter I.[3]
