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.

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:

Being a girl that hardly laughs much nowadays, this is the first thing in a while that's made me laugh this hard. XD I could easily see something like this in an actual Hetalia strip.

Now if you excuse me, I'm off to read the other two parts of this. :3

the old Fritz and Voltaire^^...


Frederick II. really was an interesting person, an enlighted but absolute monarch, a composer and poet but militarist...


I also love the part "Are you always that dumb or were you making a special effort for me today?"


Ah, history lessons would be much more funny and interesting with comic strips like this^^  You're doing a great job!


(oh yeah, Frederick's German skills... I once read some of his personal notes and just thought "what the..., that's supposed to be German ?!" XD

There's a quote about this: "How could someone be that bad at German [language], but be such a great German [man] ?", meaning Frederick II.

He's said to have stated himself, he could talk German "only like a coachman"^^)

Yeah, he was so very creative with the German language. I couldn't make so many mistakes if I tried (he wrote Monat as mohnahd.  ouch!)

But that's an insult to every coachman!

One of my "favourites" is also "Al Mosen wirtschaft"...


But Frederick the Great also had some sense of humor, for e.g., he once answered a request of a business man named Wind with "I already have enough wind in my country, I do not need anymore" (Frederick II. used the term "wind" to describe something which was most likely without much success^^). Or did you know already ?


I was in Vienna once, and I can confirm, austrian coachmen speak proper German (never met anyother coachmen)^^

:iconcadaska:
Cadaska Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014
Oh, Al Mosen sounds sexy! So Arabic! :XD:

No I didn't know that, thanks! XD So he did understand German well at least. I only knew that he usually demanded German books to be translated to French first before he read it. In the very very rare instances when he wanted to read something from a German author.

I'm sure he simply wanted to insult those poor coachmen....

Haha History anecdotes are funny ^^


But I think that Francis should less like Voltaire after what he says about Canada ^^"
France: And no dear Voltaire, The iron mask man was not the twin brother of Louis XIV either, Louis XIV had not a twin brother, I know, I was here at his birth! -_-

Thanks! Apparently back then people  were even more convinced XD Frederick once criticized the French king for caring too much about his mistresses. He got this reply from France:
Peux-tu condamner la tendresse,
Toi qui n’en as connu l’ivresse
Que dans les bras de tes tambours ?

(Kannst du Zärtlichkeit verurteilen,
Du, der du die Trunkenheit/den Rausch
nur in den Armen deiner Soldaten erlebt hast?)

It sounded weird in English....Well, weirder.
