, Prussia (Germany) - 1740 - Frederick the Great crowned King of Prussia

"Frederick the Great was the most important of all the Prussian rulers. The great-grandson of the Great Elector was a dominant figure in European history, one of the so-called "Enlightened Despots". Frederick was chiefly a balancer of powers in Europe, working between a weakened Austria and France."
