Look at the astonishing history and legacy of Prussia from an unknown little territory to a rising star in the concert of European powers in the nineteenth century. Explore Frederick the Great’s reign as an enlightened King who invited the Philosopher Voltaire to his court, as well as the Prussian King Wilhelm I who under Bismarck’s leadership was in 1871 crowned as the German Emperor. Prussia’s decline started with Wilhelm II and the end of the monarchy after the First World War. The rise of the Nazis to power in 1933 and the Second World War mark the beginning of the end of Prussia, which was officially abolished by the Allied Control Council in 1947.
