Frederick should really be used to this by now. Let’s just take a look at the Kings of Prussia from the time of the Great Elector:
Frederick William (1640-1688)
Frederick (1688-1701)
Frederick I (1701-1713)
Frederick William I (1713-1740)
Frederick II, “The Great” (1740-1786)
Frederick William II (1786-1797)
Frederick William III (1797-1840)
Frederick William IV (1840-1861)
Two hundred years of rulers, all of them with Frederick jammed somewhere or other in their name. For those of you with the soundbite “Are all of your pets called Eric?” lingering in the back of your head, you are not alone. For those without, my sympathy.
