Half-length portrait to the right within oval of Frederick Henry Louis of Prussia (1726-1802). The oval is surrounded by allegorical decorations. Henry was the thirteenth child of Frederick William I of Prussia and Sophia Dorothea of Hanover. In 1752 he married Wilhelmina (1726-1808), daughter of Maximilian of Hesse-Kassel; they had no children. Hendrik was a successful general during the Seven Years' War. After the war he became a diplomat and contributed to the first division of Poland. In 1776, after negotiations with Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, US Congress President Nathaniel Gorham proposed to Alexander Hamilton that Henry would become king or president of the new United States. The proposal was soon withdrawn - before Hendrik could answer. Etching by Johannes Esaias Nilson (1721-1788). Made in Augsburg, around 1760. Signed in print.
