The 30 Years’ War does things to you, doesn’t it, Reiner?
Ahhh, poor Frederick William III - Such a shy and timid man who had to inherit the weight of the legacies forged by his grand-uncle Frederick the Great. He really did try to keep Prussia neutral during the Napoleonic Wars, offering to negotiate and refusing to be a part of any coalition, an effort that ultimately failed. To his credit though, at least he had his personal family life well put together - Now that’s something most of his predecessors can’t claim they had.
And of course, as you can imagine, the word ‘neutrality’ brings back some really, REALLY horrid memories for Brandenburg - After all, that same policy was what royally messed him up during the 30 Years. The invasion of Berlin must have been one big ‘mm-watcha say’ moment for Reiner tbh.
