A 1757 Frederick the Great Lissa and Rossbach Campaign Medal

In bronze, obverse illustrating a left-facing Frederick the Great on horseback, his sword drawn, a forest, encampment and the town of Lissa behind him, inscribed in Latin "FREDERIC. DG. BORVS. REX. ET. PROTESTANTI,m. DEFENSOR" ABOVE AND "LISSA. DEC. 5" below, reverse illustrating an intense battle scene from the Battle of Rossbach, inscribed "QUO. NIHIL. MAJUS. MELIUSVE" above and "ROSBACH. NOV. 5 1757" below, 48.2 mm, oxidation spot on the obverse, light contact, better than very fine.Footnote: The Battle of Rossbach took place on November 5, 1757 during the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) near the village of Rossbach, in the Electorate of Saxony. Frederick II (AKA Frederick the Great), King of Prussia, defeated the allied armies of France and the Holy Roman/Austrian Empire. This battle is considered one his greatest masterpieces, due to his exploitation of rapid movement, to achieve the element of complete surprise and destroying an enemy army with negligible casualties. One month later, on December 5, 1757, at the Battle of Lissa (AKA Leuthen), Frederick II used manoeuvre and terrain to decisively defeat a much bigger Austrian army under Prince Charles Alexander of Lorraine, thus ensuring Prussian control of Silesia during the Seven Years' War.
