FREDERICK WILLIAM III. Manuscript DS: "Frederich Wilhelm", in German, 1p, 8¼x13¼. Berlin, 1797 November 17. Not translated. Signed 29 days before King Frederick William II died at Potsdam, December 16, 1797, and was succeeded by his son as Frederick William III (King, 1797-1840). Frederick William III tried to maintain neutrality in the Napoleonic Wars but was unsuccessful. By the Treaty of Tilsit (1807), Prussia was virtually a vassal of France. After a military alliance was signed with Russia, Frederick William III declared war on France in March 1813. He attended the Congress of Vienna and was rewarded with Westphalia and most of Saxony. Influenced by Russian Czar Alexander I and by Austria's Metternich, Frederick William III joined the Holy Alliance. His elder son succeeded him as King Frederick William IV who was succeeded by his brother as King (Kaiser) Wilhelm I of Prussia and Emperor of Germany. Folds do not touch signature. Lightly creased and soiled. Overall, fine condition.
