"Tall Guys" - Potsdam Giants

The "long guys" was a popular nickname that the prussian people gave to the elite Prussian Potsdam Giants (the Prussian Infantry Regiment No. 6), consisting of greater than average soldiers. The Potsdam Giants Gard was founded 1675 by the later King Frederick I (1701-1713) and received its nickname ("lange Kerls" -- "long guys") because under the King Frederick Wilhelm I of Prussia (1713-1740), which had a big sentiment for this Regiment, for the entrance in that was required for the young men the height over 6 Prussian feet (about 6'2" or 1.88 meters), notwithstanding the King himself was ca. 1.6 meter. The next King, Frederick the Great (Frederick II, 1740-1786) had no interest for this regiment. After the defeat of Prussia against Napoleon Bonaparte, the Potsdam Giants 1806 was dissolved.
