The Silesian Wars

The Silesian Wars (German: Schlesische Kriege) were a series of three wars fought in the mid-18th century between Prussia (under King Frederick the Great) and Austria (under Archduchess Maria Theresa) for control of the Central European region of Silesia. All three wars are generally considered to have ended in Prussian victory, and their territorial result was Austria’s cession of the majority of Silesia to Prussia.
