Frederick II (24 January 1712 – 17 August 1786) was King in Prussia (1740–1786) of the Hohenzollern dynasty. He is best known for his brilliance in military campaigning and organization of Prussian armies.
Upon ascending to the Prussian throne, he attacked Austria and claimed Silesia during the Silesian Wars, winning military acclaim for himself and Prussia.
Near the end of his life, Frederick physically connected most of his realm by conquering Polish territories in the First Partition of Poland. ¤
