King of Prussia, from 1786 until his death on 16 November 1797. Pleasure-loving and indolent, he was the antithesis to his predecessor, Frederick II. Under his reign, Prussia was weakened internally and externally, and he failed to meet the challenges posed by the French Revolution. He was opposed to the Enlightenment, instead aiming to restore a traditional Protestantism. A patron of the arts (Beethoven and Mozart enjoyed his patronage), he oversaw the construction of notable buildings like the Brandenburger Tor in Berlin.
He married twice and had seven children by his second wife, while in an ongoing relationship with his mistress, Wilhelmine Enke (created Countess Wilhelmine von Lichtenau in 1796), a woman of strong intellect and much ambition, and had five children by her — the first when she was still in her teens.
