Total Threat Level: 2

Musical Theme Inspiration: Rondo alla Turca (composed by Mozart) (Amiga version), or Goldberg Variations (composed by Bach) (DOS version)


Though listed as aggressive, if the Germans encounter a militarily superior civilization, Frederick will almost always offer a tribute and attempt to make peace, even to the extent of offering all his gold and knowledge.

Civilopedia entry[]

"Frederick William II, known as The Great, ruled Prussia for nearly fifty years. Displaying unexpected qualities as a leader and decision maker, he became one of the great generals of history and made Prussia the dominant military power of Europe. He also promoted important reforms at home, patronized the arts, and was a champion of religious liberty. He was considered the epitome of the enlightened monarch and warrior king."
