Description[edit | edit source]
Prussia was originally the name of a pagan Baltic people, who in the 13th century were conquered by the German Teutonic Knight order. The knights established an independent state in this land, and in 1561 Grand Master Albrecht I proclaimed himself hereditary Duke of Prussia. Evolving into a regional military powerhouse, Prussia played an important role in uniting the German nation in 1871 and solidified its power during the Franco-Prussian war of the same year.
