Based on the novel by Józef Ignacy Kraszewski, Sachsens Glanz und Preußens Gloria is a six-part television film that goes back to historical events between 1697 and 1763 and addresses Brandenburg-Saxon relations and the Seven Years' War. This large-scale production at the end of the GDR is one of the few positively interpretable representations of feudalism or imperialism in GDR film history. The quality of the equipment and the number of actors exceeded all previous DEFA films.
