Frederick I was crowned as the first Prussian King in 1701. In order to reassure the Holy Roman Emperor that he had no intention of challenging the latter's authority he called himself King in Prussia. His grandson, Frederick II (the Great) changed the title to King of Prussia when he became king in 1740.

Austria declared war because the French queen was related to the ruler of Austria. The king of Prussia believed that the cause of keeping a king in power in europe was his cause as a king himself. A successful revolution against a king in one country can inspire it in another, and Prussia' king was afraid that would happen in Prussia.
