His love match with Luise of Mecklenburg is famous and his terse language lived on in the Prussian military. Exclusively at Emporium Hamburg: A silver medal of Frederick William III of Prussia!

Frederick William III had to endure much during his reign. After the defeat against Napoleon I Bonaparte, his country was downgraded from a great power to a middle power and had to accept a great loss of territory. Prussia had virtually collapsed at this point. Modernisation measures were introduced and Prussia slowly regained its status as a great power after the French were driven out in the Wars of Liberation of 1813.

Things went better for Frederick William III in his private life: his marriage to Luise was not only a love match but also produced 10 children. The monarch also favoured a concise way of speaking, often simply omitting personal pronouns. This short style of speech became the model for Prussian military language.
