Princess Louise Caroline of Hesse-Kassel (born 28 September 1789 at Gottorp in Schleswig, Duchy of Schleswig; died 13 March 1867 in Ballenstedt, Germany) was the consort of Friedrich Wilhelm, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and the matriarch of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg which would eventually become the ruling house of the kingdoms of Denmark, Greece, Norway, and the United Kingdom.

Louise Caroline was born at Gottorp in the Duchy of Schleswig to Landgrave Charles of Hesse-Kassel (19 December 174417 August 1836) and his wife Princess Louise of Denmark and Norway (30 January 175012 January 1831). Her elder sister Marie Sophie of Hesse-Kassel (28 October 176721 March 1852) became Queen consort of Frederick VI of Denmark.

Friedrich Wilhelm and Louise Caroline had ten children:

*Princess "Luise Marie" Friederike of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (October 23, 1810 - May 11, 1869).
*Princess "Friederike" Karoline Juliane of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (October 9, 1811 - July 10, 1902).
*Karl, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (September 30, 1813 - October 24, 1878).
*Friedrich, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (October 23, 1814 - November 27, 1885).
*Prince Wilhelm of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (April 10, 1816 - September 5, 1893).
*Christian IX of Denmark (April 8, 1818 - January 29, 1906).
*Princess "Luise", Abbess of Itzehoe (November 18, 1820 - November 30, 1894).
*Prince "Julius" of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (October 14, 1824 - June 1, 1903).
*Prince "Johann" of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (December 5, 1825 - May 27, 1911).
*Prince "Nikolaus" of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (December 22, 1828 - August 18, 1849).

Louise Caroline's son Prince Christian was named third-in-line to the throne of Christian VIII of Denmark in 1847. He succeeded his childless cousin Frederick VII of Denmark on 15 November 1863, the hereditary prince Ferdinand having deceased somewhat earlier.

Her grandchildren included (among others) King Frederick VIII of Denmark, Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom, Empress Marie of Russia, King George I of Greece and Crown Princess Thyra of Hanover, Duchess of Cumberland and Teviotdale.
