Friedrich the Great, King of Prussia and Elector of Brandenburg
"I am the first servant of my state"
Friedrich the Great and also nicknamed Old Fritz was an exceptional individual in German history but not the King of Germany.. He was a successful Prussian general- he was also an aesthete who composed and played the flute. He was interested in all the Arts.br/> Old Fritz shined as an educated reformist who socialized with the likes of Voltaire, who he also was engaged with in a letter exchange and even invited him to his castle. He reformed Prussian Society and established many public schools and banned torture. In contrast he managed to elevate Prussia to a major European power through wars with his own style as power – an expansion of power without regard to mercy or the price of losses.
