    There was a thread like this some time ago, and I'd say the same thing I said then:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Bromberg

    The Treaty of Bromberg (German: Vertrag von Bromberg, Latin: Pacta Bydgostensia) or Treaty of Bydgoszcz was a treaty between John II Casimir of Poland and Elector Frederick William of Brandenburg-Prussia, ratified at Bromberg (Bydgoszcz) on 6 November 1657. The treaty consisted of several agreements, including the Treaty of Wehlau signed on 19 September 1657 by the Brandenburg-Prussian and Polish-Lithuanian envoys in Wehlau (Welawa, now Znamensk). Thus, the treaty of Bromberg is sometimes referred to as treaty of Wehlau-Bromberg or Treaty of Wehlau and Bromberg (Polish: traktat welawsko-bydgoski).
    In exchange for military aid in the Second Northern War and the return of Ermland (Ermeland, Warmia) to Poland, the Polish king granted the Hohenzollern dynasty of Brandenburg hereditary sovereignty in the Duchy of Prussia, pawned Draheim (Drahim) and Elbing (Elbląg) to Brandenburg, and handed over Lauenburg and Bütow Land to the Hohenzollerns as a hereditary fief.
    The sovereignty in Prussia constituted the basis for the later coronation of the Hohenzollern as Prussian kings. Wehlau-Bromberg remained in effect until it was superseded by the Treaty of Warsaw (18 September 1773) following the First Partition of Poland. The treaty is regarded as one of the biggest mistakes in Polish foreign policy.
    A 1657 treaty in which Poland basically allowed Hohenzollern dynasty (kings) in Prussia. It started the rise of Germany as you know today (as one united country). Prussia improved military, became strong and in 1772 took part in partitions of Poland. Until 1871 Prussia united Germany and proclaimed empire, while fucked up Poland was wiped out of the map until 1918.

      Umm, no. Some 17th century Hohenzollern treaty with Poland was totally insignificant in that process. A dramatically different outcome would at most have weakened the Hohenzollerns but at the same time strengthened some other house.

        Umm, yes. And your 2 sentence "analysis" didn't prove otherwise.

          Hohenzollerns weren't even instrumental in German unification which happened over 200 years later.
