Frederick II, also known as Frederick the Great, was a prominent figure in European history, renowned for his extensive reign over the Kingdom of Prussia from 1740 to 1786. With a remarkable rule lasting 46 years, he left an indelible mark on the region, marked by his military triumphs, strategic reorganization of the Prussian armies, and influential patronage of the arts and Enlightenment. Notably, his success during the Seven Years' War solidified Prussia's position as a dominant military power in Europe, earning him widespread acclaim and recognition as a significant historical figure. Under Frederick's leadership, Prussia experienced unprecedented territorial expansion and emerged as a formidable force within the European political landscape. His achievements included the acquisition of sovereignty over historically Prussian lands in 1772, a pivotal moment in Prussian history. This expansion, coupled with his military acumen and strategic reformation of the Prussian armies, firmly established Prussia as a leading power in Europe, solidifying Frederick's reputation as an influential and impactful ruler. Fondly referred to as Der Alte Fritz ("Old Fritz") by the Prussian people and the broader German populace, Frederick the Great's legacy extends beyond military triumphs, encompassing a profound influence on Prussian culture, the arts, and the ideals of the Enlightenment. His enduring impact on Prussia's cultural and military landscape continues to be celebrated, cementing his place as a pivotal figure in European history and a celebrated monarch in the annals of Prussian and German heritage.

Alte Fritz

This bust occupies the central position on a shelf of Imperial German items: A pressed felt pickelhaube to one side and a M1916 Stahlhelm to the other. Frederick perfectly compliments both items. A very nicely done rendering.
