The Great Elector : Frederick William of Brandenburg-Prussia, Paperback Book

The Great Elector : Frederick William of Brandenburg-Prussia Paperback

Part of the Profiles in Power series

Description

In this first biography in English for fifty years, Derek McKay avoids the limitation of seeing Frederick William primarily as precursor of the 'Enlightened' Frederick the Great.

Instead, he roots him firmly in his own time, a dynastic, protestant ruler like many another in Germany, but gifted with the toughness and opportunism to overcome the hostility of his local nobilities and of the surrounding great powers.
