(1688–1740)

King of Prussia (1713–40). He was the son of Frederick I and was known as ‘the royal drill-sergeant’: he was a strict Calvinist, hardworking, violent tempered, and notorious for his ill-treatment of his son, Frederick II. He left a model administration, a large revenue, and an efficient and well-disciplined army. He acquired Stettin in 1720.
