Hear me out!
Today, I was googling Queen Tory's 9 kids and figured one of them married some Prussian king named Frederick. I thought ''Is this the gay Frederick I've heard so much about?'' it wasn't, but then I googled ''gay prussian king'' and this page came up:
(Excuse me while I pick my jaw off the floor.)
Wouldn't this make an AMAZING movie? About Fred II and this Hans guy? It could be about those events: them being lovers, Fred's dad suspecting, getting Hans beheaded, Fred going on to become a fucking great leader? I'd SO get this done if I was rich enough to pull off the cost―a few million dollars for what I have in mind if we don't do an all-star cast (I'd looove to get Meryl Streep. She's actually of German descent.). Or it could be alternative history, them running away and things happenning. It could be fantasy, with magic and shit. It would have PROPER wigs, unlike every other 18th century show. Or it could have no wigs like in Hamilton, it could be with a diverse cast that look nothing like the actual historical people. It could be a musical―wait a minute. LMM COULD DO THIS! He would write such awesome songs.
I also went to the Wikipedia page of Frederick's mother Sophia Dorothea and found THIS:
Society was crazily homophobic (or not even homophobic as homosexuality wasn't even a thing yet) and misogynist back then, I get it. But this guy took it to another level. Suleiman I of the Ottoman Empire who lived 2 centuries before this guy took his wife's (Hurrem Sultan) advice on political matters. And that woman arrived in the palace as a slave! Later, Kosem Sultan basically ruled the country for her son who was too young to rule. Why does successful women scare you so much, Fred's dad?
Maybe it would be about Fred, Hans and Sophia joining forces to murder Fred's dad, because man, that's what I would do if I was there.
