The following quote describes a ruler of Prussia who most embodied the idea of enlightened despotism. Who was that ruler?
“When the King of Prussia speaks on problems connected with the art of war, which he has studied intensively and on which he has read every conceivable book, then everything is taut, solid and uncommonly instructive. There are no circumlocutions, he gives factual and historical proof of the assertions he makes, for he is well versed in history.”

|(D)||William I of Prussia|
