Portrait bust of Frederick William I of Brandenburg (1620-1688), Elector of Brandenburg and Duke of Prussia. He is wearing a cloak. He was a member of the House of Hohenzollern and popularly known as "the Great Elector" (Der Große Kurfürst) for his military and political prowess. He was a staunch supporter of Calvinism. He saw the importance of trade and promoted it strongly. His clever internal reforms empowered Prussia and laid the foundations for transforming the duchy into a kingdom. This was eventually achieved by his successor, Frederick I of Prussia. Etching and engraving by Pieter II de Jode (1606-1674), signed lower right in print. Made around 1660.
