Frederick William III, King of Prussia (1770-1840)


RCIN 404944

Frederick William III of Prussia lost almost half of his Kingdom during the Napoleonic Wars. Like the Russian Emperor Alexander I, he commanded his own army at the Battle of Jena in 1806. As in the portrait of Alexander I (RCIN 404942), Lawrence portrays Frederick William III both as a monarch and a soldier against the smoke of a raging battle.
