Keyrings remain to be one of the most popular souvenir and advertising items. Also known as key chains, key fobs or key holders these small, versatile items serve great functions in our everyday lives. Most people use them to keep from misplacing that bunch of keys we always seem to lose. Others add pocket knives, bottle openers or car keys. Companies are also known to capitalize on the functionality and versatility of key rings to promote their business. A standard advertising keychain will carry the company's name and its logo. Key rings are also prized collectibles with the most 
popular focusing on souvenir, monument, popular characters and nostalgia-related items. Collectors often display and store their keyrings in not just on their keyring but a few have accumulated a large enough collection that are exhibited on dowels, cork boards, tool racks, on large link chains, inside display cases or hung on walls. This '' Frederick the Great'' keyring is too beautiful to disappear in your handbag or jacket. It is an accessory that draws attention to itself with the famous portrait of the great Prussian king on one side while the other side is adorned with the silhouette of the "Old Fritz" on horseback.


Frederick the Great
King Frederick II was born on January 24, 1712 in Berlin, Prussia. He was the son of Frederick Wilhelm I. In his youth, Frederick II displayed fondness and talent for music, arts and languages resulting in his strict father prescribing military training. When he came of age, Frederick II endeavored to seek freedom and escape to England to stay with his grandfather George I. He and his friend were caught and court martialed by King Frederick Wilhelm I and he was forced to watch as his friend was decapitated as punishment. Frederick II continued his military training but also nurturing his love for music and went on to succeed the throne on May 31, 1740. King Frederick the Great – fondly called “Old Fritz” by his subjects – is often remembered as the founder of Prussian militarism, and adored for unifying Enlightenment rationalism and military tradition.
