Best Monarchs of All Times
The Top Ten
Frederick THE GREAT. He was abused by his father, was never let use of musical instruments and books, and yet when his reign arrived, he led Prussia through the Seven Years' War and greatly expanded Prussia's army and land. Deserving of his title, without doubt.
