Vandalism Removal[edit]

I removed this obvious piece of vandalism from the opening paragraph about his second marriage ...*... --- Drew Suiko 30 January 2007 11:22 EST

* While the Talk page is the place to discuss questions of vandalism to the related Mainspace page, there is no justifiable reason to cite blatant vulgarity here verbatim when it is, as you say, an "obvious piece of vandalism". Two editors have objected to that explicit citation's presence here, so I have removed it. Interested readers may find the content in the page's edit history predating the above comment. -- Deborahjay (talk) 16:41, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

incorrect link...[edit]

After reading the Wiki on Frederick the Great, I clicked on the link of his successor, his nephew, Frederick William II of Prussia. I then clicked the link of his consort (wife) and it sent me to Frederick the Great's wife instead. Their names are similar but if you look at their birthdays - it is obvious that the links are incorrect.

At the beginning of the 2nd paragragh of Frederick William II's bio section, the correct link is reached when you click on the naming of his wife.

Just an FYI

nickname[edit]

The german article leads with his popular nickname "the fat good-for-nothing". This is not mentioned here. should it be? Coughinink 02:53, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

p.s. perhaps it is not necessary to repeat deleted vandalism in such explicit and extensive detail.

Bigamy[edit]

The article states that he married while already married. Why was he allwoed to commit bigamy? What was the contemporary reactions? --Aciram (talk) 20:51, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
