Frederick II, in German Friedrich II (24 January 1712 – 17 August 1786), was a King of Prussia (1740–1786) from the Hohenzollern dynasty. He became known as Frederick the Great due to his (largely successful) efforts both politically and militarily to make Prussia into a formidable power in Europe. He led his kingdom through the Seven Years' War against France, Austria, and Russia. During the 20th century, the Nazis made him one of their symbols, damaging his legacy in the years since World War II.

Frederick II in "Shtetl Days"Edit

Frederick the Great was one of Adolf Hitler's heroes. After Germany won the War of Retribution, Frederick's friends, including Voltaire, enjoyed a glowing reputation in the Greater German Reich.

Frederick II in AtlantisEdit

In the mid 18th century, King Frederick II of Prussia launched a global war with Russia, Austria, and France. Britain allied itself with Prussia.[1]

Frederick was still on the throne at the time of the Atlantean War of Independence, in which Prussia remained neutral. His style of direct rule was cited in a conversation between British Captain Horace Grimsley and Atlantean General Victor Radcliff as they negotiated the surrender of the British garrison after the Siege of Croydon.[2]
