Historical Info:
In February 1772, Prussia, Russia, and Austria signed an agreement in Vienna to partition Poland. Speaking of the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa's participation in the avaricious and tragic affair, Prussian King Frederick II later wrote: "The Empress Catherine and I are simple robbers. I just would like to know how the empress [Maria Theresa] calmed down her father confessor. She cried when she took, the more she cried, the more she took.
