'''Prussia''' was a country in eastern [[Europe]], bordering on the [[Baltic Sea]]. It integrated several other states to become [[Germany]]; the creation of the German Empire was proclaimed in 1870. Much of Prussia disappeared due to the peace settlements following [[World War I]] and [[World War II]], and the land is now part of [[Russia]] or [[Poland]]. Prussians were known for being aristocratic and militaristic. Prussians allied with the British defeated [[Napoleon]] at the battle of Waterloo. The earliest recorded history of the area reports a Baltic tribe known as the Prussians. They were pagans, and the christian Teutonic knights came in, took over, and brought in German settlers.
