Best Monarchs of All Times

The Top Ten

1 Frederick II of Prussia

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.

This one Prussian did so much for his kingdom. He was a patron of the arts and a great composer. Of course, even greater are his military exploits. The greatest German leader.
