Friedrich II. von Preußen (1712-1786)

"Friedrich II. oder Friedrich der Große, volkstümlich auch der Alte Fritz, (* 24. Januar 1712 in Berlin; † 17. August 1786 in Potsdam) war seit 1740 König in und seit 1772 König von Preußen sowie seit 1740 regierender Kurfürst von Brandenburg. Er entstammte der Dynastie der Hohenzollern. Die von ihm gegen Österreich geführten drei Schlesischen Kriege um den Besitz Schlesiens führten zum deutschen Dualismus. Nach dem letzten dieser Kriege, dem Siebenjährigen Krieg von 1756 bis 1763, war Preußen als fünfte Großmacht neben Frankreich, Großbritannien, Österreich und Russland in der europäischen Pentarchie anerkannt. Friedrich gilt als ein Repräsentant des aufgeklärten Absolutismus. So bezeichnete er sich selbst als „ersten Diener des Staates“.[1] Er setzte tiefgreifende gesellschaftliche Reformen durch, schaffte die Folter ab und forcierte den Ausbau des Bildungssystems." - Wikipedia, 25.09.2017
