Wilhelm Meyer was born in 1824 in the Danish town of Fredericia, where his father was a regimental surgeon in the Danish army. Two years later the family removed to Glückstadt in Holstein, where Meyer lived until 1843, when he entered the University of Copenhagen. His mother was a Dane, and her sympathies remained with Denmark, whereas his father, who was from Holstein, and the rest of the family were German in their sympathies. After leaving the university, Meyer returned to Glückstadt and for some time assisted his father in his private practice. He contracted scarlet fever, and during his illness the insurrection against Denmark broke out in Schleswig-Holstein (1848). Meyer's father left the Danish army and joined the Germans, and probably because of his influence his son became a surgeon in the insurgent army. Later Meyer was entirely Danish in his sympathies.
