 Frederick William IV of Prussia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King Frederick William IV of Prussia (October 15, 1795 - January 2, 1861), the eldest son and successor of Frederick William III of Prussia, reigned as King of Prussia from 1840 to 1861.
Frederick William was a staunch Romanticist, and his devotion to this movement, which in the German States featured a nostalgia for the Middle Ages, was largely responsible for him developing into a conservative at an early age.
When revolution broke out in Prussia in March 1848, part of the larger Revolutions of 1848, the king initially moved to repress it with the army, but later decided to recall the troops and place himself at the head of the movement on March 19.

 Frederick William IV, King of Prussia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Born in 1795, Frederick William IV was the oldest of seven surviving children of Frederick William III and Queen Luise.
After his father's death in June 1840, Frederick William responded to pressures for change in Prussian society by embarking upon a series of experiments (the United Committees of 1842, the Evangelical General Synod of 1846, and the United Diet of 1847), to transform state and church on the basis of his organic-corporative ideals.
Though usually dismissed as an inconsistent fantast and a political failure, through his (and his advisers') stubborn insistence on maintaining a powerful monarchy, Frederick William IV played a key role in the process by which Prussia's conservative elites survived the revolution of 1848 and adapted co nstitutional structures to their own ends.

For all its problems, at least Prussia had stood up to Napoleon instead of bowing and scraping before as did the sycophant princes of the Confederation of the Rhine.
Prussia's modernization of its military and economy were pragmatically rather than philosophically based: Prussia wanted to keep up with the French.
