Title: Ducatus Pomeraniae cum magna Maris Balthici et provinciarum ad nexarum parte ad delineationem novissimam sculpsit et excudit Matthaeus Seutter Geograph. August.
Creator: Seutter, Matthäus 1678-1756
Date Range: 1745 - 1770
Dimensions: on sheet 54 x 63 cm
Notes: Cartouche depicts events associated with the history of Pomerania: the figure in armour may represent Valdemar I the Great of Denmark who seized the capital city of Arkona in 1168 from the Wends who were raiding the Danish coast. The soldier holding what appears to be a cannon ball has the uniform of the Electorate of Brandenbur-Prussia. Coats of arms represent Prussia and the Electorate of Brandenburg.
