APH: Our embarrassing bosses by Cadaska APH: Our embarrassing bosses by Cadaska
Second part: cadaska.deviantart.com#/art/AP…
third part: cadaska.deviantart.com/art/APH…

Based on the panel where Frederick complains to Gilbert about a French guy groping him. Totally a Voltaire reference :nod: I’m not saying that Frederick II. was actually gay (he could’ve been asexual). And Joseph simply had an intellectual hero crush on Frederick.

Personally I think Hetalia Frederick looks nothing like the real man but I stuck to the hetalia version anyway. Have a historical drawing of their first meeting. In bed (Frederick was ill,  and super embarrassed about it):  upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… And here they are just hanging out, being fabulous: www.preussische-allgemeine.de/…

Frederick and Voltaire also wrote each other nice poems like this one:
V: « Non, malgré vos vertus, non malgré vos appas / Mon âme n’est point satisfaite / Non, vous n’êtes qu’une coquette / Qui subjuguez les coeurs et ne vous donnez pas. »
F: « Mon coeur sent le prix de vos divins appas / Mais ne présumez pas qu’elle soit satisfaite / Traître vous me quittez pour suivre une coquette / Moi je ne vous quitterai pas. »

Voltaire's part basically translates to „Let me have you already, damnit. You and your stupid trust issues“. And Frederick just goes „Bitch my trust issues are there for a reason.“
..............I shouldn’t be allowed near French poetry.



8th panel: smilesedgeworth.tumblr.com/pos… They do have their similarities.

And did you know that relationship ended? Voltaire left Prussia with the king's blessing, but Frederick realised a little too late that the philosopher left with a book of poesy he had written himself. Worried about what the French would make with it, the king of prussia arrested and emprisonned him. 

okay, I take it back, I hadn't read the 2nd part. Of course you knew.

:rofl: Voltaire was such a troll! XD And Team Rainbow! XD The first two panels were adorable, though~! Poor Gil and Frederick, they try so hard! XDD
I have heard that even though Frederick got a mistress because the French kings had mistresses and he thought he needed one too, all he did with her was go on walks around the palace.

Thanks!


He did experiment a little as a teenager/young man, but of course Voltaire later made fun of him for it (basically saying that he only imagined being attracted to women because he wasn't yet experienced enough to realize that he was gay) :XD:
