This PowerPoint presentation was created to accompany a lecture on the development of absolutism in Prussia in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Frederick William, the Great Elector, began building an absolutist state in Brandenburg-Prussia after the Thirty Years' War. This state was completed by his grandson, Frederick William I, the "Soldier King" of Prussia. The Fredericks built an absolutist state based on the principle of militarism, creating a military machine that was the envy of all of Europe. Prussia was the 12th largest nation in Europe and had the 4th largest army. Quite a ratio!
