Summary note
Prussia's development into a major European power has a long history that began with the Teutonic Order and its power politics. At the beginning of the 16th century, a territorial association with great commercial and later industrial capabilities was formed under Habsburg imperial protection from Ravensberg, Kleve, Mark and Jülich-Berg. For the Emperor and Spain, these territories were of immense importance in the fight against the Dutch Republic. In the course of the conflicts over these territories between Brandenburg and Pfalz-Neuburg, the Lower Rhine-Westphalian area of ​​Ravensberg, Kleve and Mark came indirectly to Brandenburg under Elector Johann Sigismund. The social difference between the Mark Brandenburg and the new territories was that the Mark was manorial and the new areas manorial. The Hohenzollerns from Brandenburg had agricultural areas in the east of the Elbe and commercial areas in the Lower Rhine, In this book, the guidelines of Prussia's development into a great power are presented and linked to the respective rulers, their goals and their policies. There is no detailed analysis of all factors, the book has the character of an overview work.
