A 1734 map of the German Empire published by Covens and Mortier

This particular copy was used by Augustus Schutz, who had been tasked with educating William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland – the youngest son of George II (later popularly known as Butcher Cumberland) – in the complexities of the multitude of electorates, principalities and lordships within the Empire. Schutz’s limited colour palette proved somewhat inadequate to the task, and he was further hampered by the outdated-ness of some of the underlying information. But it was nonetheless a good starting point for Cumberland’s foreign policy education.
