In the autumn of 1750 Frederick held a famous Berlin carousal, the celebrity of which filled all Europe. Distinguished guests flocked to the city from all the adjoining realms. Wilhelmina came to share in the festivities. Voltaire was also present, 鈥渢he observed of all observers.鈥?An English gentleman, Sir Jonas Hanway, in the following terms describes the appearance of Frederick at this time: Now when they come home for a visit, it makes them sad that the old town square isn't exactly like it waswhen they left it back in 1954.
