Young Ludwig comes into his own

It had been a long day of training. Ludwig V had been drilling with the men of his regiment. This would be the last season that he served as a Freikorporal carrying a musket amongst the common soldiers of the regiment that bore his name. The next year he would assume the commissioned rank of Leutnant, and Hauptman, the year after that.

Little did he realize that he would soon have an "close encounter" with a major European power. To learn more, click here to go to The Margraviate of Ost-Pommern.

That's how a young prince becomes the hero of his people.
