Frederick the Great before the battle of Liegnitz, after Schubert. A night scene depicting, on the left, a soldier on horseback warning Frederick II and his men, who are gathered around a fire, that the enemy is approaching. The Battle of Liegnitz on 15 August 1760 saw Frederick the Great's Prussian Army defeat the Austrian army under Ernst von Laudon. Friedrich II was a brilliant military campaigner who, in a series of diplomatic stratagems and wars against Austria and other powers, greatly enlarged Prussia's territories and made Prussia the foremost military power in Europe.
