Frederick the Soldier King was trapped behind enemy lines with nothing between him, and escape from Prussian troops at Mollwitz. There he was carried to safety by a horse that will forever be known as the Mollwitz Grey. The Grey was immediately retired to a parade ground in Postdam. Whenever a military honor guard came by and played or marched, the horse would march alongside of them. Once the musicians and the flags were gone, the horse would return to grazing.
