APH: More embarrassing bosses by Cadaska APH: More embarrassing bosses by Cadaska
Part 1 and 2: cadaska.deviantart.com/art/APH…   cadaska.deviantart.com/art/APH…

Many of the stories about Frederick’s childhood were written afterwards. So don’t nail me down on any of these things.

It’s unlikely that his dad really planned to execute him, he mainly wanted to scare and break him (he said as much). But of course Austria and Poland didn‘t know that, and neither did Frederick. Both weren’t the only countries trying to save him. England, Russia and Sweden did as well. His dad was actually surprised by the strong European reaction.

Useless info: Frederick spent some time with Casanova. They even ended up in Frederick’s bedroom (doing nothing, really).
Equally useless info: Frederick and Voltaire once had a discussion about the beautiful butts of French men. I didn’t understand half  of it and it’s probably better this way.

Voltaire summed up his relationship with Frederick well :
„I couldn‘t live without you, nor with you. I’m not speaking to the King, to the hero. I leave that to other rulers. I’m speaking to the one who has bewitched me, whom I‘ve loved and with whom I’m always angry.“

It's from the anniversary exhibition concerning Frederick's 300th birthday in 2012: www.google.de/url?sa=t&rct=j&a…

:giggle: Dat flirting! And the 'now kiss!' :rofl: Did he really have a pet fox?
Frederick's father was a prick father. First the rabbit, then his best friend! At least you gave him a pot belly in his armor.

No I'm fairly sure he never owned a fox. I chose a fox to illustrate that he loved animals which all other people only viewed as hunting targets.


Oh he was a very fat person in real life, he mainly lived on meat and alcohol. Needless to say his health wasn't the best.

Oh okay. He loved animals in general, huh?

Yeah. Meat and alcohol do not a good diet make.

Yeah he was very pro-animal rights, but he did eat meat. Though not as much as his dad.
Some say it's because he identified with the animals he knew as a child. They were also beaten, imprisoned and mistreated for no reason, just like he was.

Well, he's a king, so he kind of had to. At least his diet was healthier. My guess is if he was around in the modern era, he'd be a vegetarian, if not straight vegan.
That makes a lot of sense, but that's probably not the only reason.

I guess so. He did love to eat though. It was his favourite hobby :XD: Nowadays people would probably demand his resignation because he spent so much of their money on his own food.

Voltaire gave him some texts about animal rights issues. And it certainly helped that Newton, one of Frederick's absolute favourites, was a vegetarian.

I did not know about the veternary medicine part. (Funny thing is Posen being captured by Prussia was probably the best thing for my dad's family)
And the man who created America's army was a Prussian.
