In the external links, I note one source gives a birth year of 1766. This is what German Wikipedia uses, but it also has him going to the University at 12 years old with no comment. ADB gives 1760 as a birth year, like Americana, and this seems more credible given the German Wikipedia narrative. I tend to believe the 1824 Brockhaus report that it was F. W. II that ordered him to prison, since F. W. III didn't become king for over a year after the letter was on the scene. But F. W. III was certainly involved since he became king while Zerboni di Sposetti was in jail. And "philosopher" seems a poor occupation tag. So there seems lots to research for this bio.
