    Documentation #1 on Frederick The Great's father ie "Voltaire"

    April 1711 Johan Sebastian Koch (Kantor, Music Director *June 16, 1689) He marticulated at the University of Jena in April 1711, and in 1712 was engaged at the court of Schleiz as a bass singer. He was made Kappelmeister there in 1727.

    17 Arpil 1711 – Joseph I, Holy Roman Emperor dies Aprli 11), opening the way for the succession of his brother Charles VI (* 1 October 1685 – 20 October 1740) was Holy Roman Emperor and ruler of the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy from 1711 until his death. This complicates the ongoing War of the Spanish Succession as Charles is one of the two candidates for the Spanish throne, backed by the Grand Alliance. Charles, the pretender to the Spanish throne, became emperor. In England the new Tory government (the 'peace party' who had deposed the Whigs in October 1710) declared their unwillingness to see Charles VI become Emperor as well as King of Spain, and had already begun secret negotiations with the French.

    2 may 1711 After their exchanges of disagreements and realizing she did not like him, Sir Edward Wortley Montagu (*8 February 1678) realized their friendship must end.[15] On 2 May, he replied, "Adieu, Dearest L[ady] M[ary].

    25 May 1711. Upon reaching his majority of 21, Lord Carteret , 2nd Earl Granville, 7th Seigneur of Sark, KG, PC (*22 April 1690) took his seat in the House of Lords. Although his family, on both sides, had been devoted to the Jacobite cause, Carteret was a steady adherent of the Hanoverian dynasty which supplanted them. He was a friend of the Whig leaders Stanhope (*c. 1683) and Charles Spencer, 3rd Earl of Sunderland and supported the passing of the Septennial Act.[6]

    conc late may 1711 Frederick II (*24 January 1712) , a Prussian royal and military leader who was King of Prussia from 1740 until his death in 1786.

    May 1711 – Alexander Pope (21 May 1688 – 30 May 1744) publishes the poem An Essay on Criticism in London.

    ‘Mid-Summer 1711-Mid Summer 1712 - 1000 Thaler less deduction of 83 Thaler 12 Groschen (Handel)

    July 1711, St John (Bolingbroke) was greatly disappointed at receiving only his viscountcy instead of the earldom lately extinct in his family, and at being passed over for the Order of the Garter.[12]

    End of July 1711 letter in French to Andreas Roner Handel asks him to convey compliments to Monsieur Hughes, and states that he will write to Hughes at the earliest opportunity. Handel expresses a desire to receive a poem written by Hughes. Handel states that he is making some progress with the French language

    Footnote: JS Koch, EW Montagu, Charles VI, Carteret, Pope, Handel and probably Saint John Bolingbroke, were aliases of "Voltaire" (*1688).

    Documentation #2 on Frederick The Great's father ie "Voltaire"

    May 1733 Voltaire stayed for three months longer, and in May took lodgings with Démoulin, his man of business, in a dingy and obscure lane. Here two other poets, Lefèvre and Linant, were with him, and here he began to live more the life of a philosopher. He engaged in the importation of grain from Spain and was interested in the manufacture of straw-paper. In company with his friend Paris-Duverney (*10 April 1684 definitely aka “Voltaire) ) he (Volt) took contracts for feeding the army, out of which he quickly realized over half a million francs. Business never interfered with his literary work, and while he fed the army he also produced verse for it. oll.libertyfund.org/pages/voltaire-incidents-in-his-life

    En mai 1733, Antonio Cocchi (*1695); il épouse en secondes noces Teresa Piombati (...)

    On 9 June 1733 Claude Dupin, seigneur de Chenonceaux, financier français ( né à Châteauroux le 8 mai 1686 et mort à Paris le 25 février 1769 acquired the magnificent Château de Chenonceau from the Duke of Bourbon for 130,000 livres. Chaque année, le couple Dupin se rend en automne dans ce cadre illustre de la Touraine. See april 1741 next

    On 12 June, 1733 17-years-old Duchess Elisabeth Christine of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel-Bevern (8 November 1715 – 13 January 1797) was married to Frederick at her father's summer palace, Schloss Salzdahlum in Wolfenbüttel, Germany. On their wedding night, Frederick spent a reluctant hour with his wife and then walked about outside for the rest of the night. Due to the circumstances behind their betrothal, he was well known to have resented the marriage from the very beginning.[1] Thus, Elizabeth's position at the Berlin Court was difficult from the beginning, as the only support that she could count on was the King's.father(*1688) .Elisabeth indeed remained attached to her father-in-law, who was particularly fond of her piety, which did nothing to endear her husband.

    27 July 1733 JSBach …above all worked on the Kyrie and the Gloria of the B minor Mass, which, in the hope of obtaining a title at the court Kapelle, he presented to the new Elector Friedrich August II (* May 1670) in Dresden, with a note dated 27 July 1733, as a Missa in a set of parts.

    21 August 1733 Handel’s letter in German to Michael Dietrich Michaelsen Handel thanks Michaelsen for his previous letter, and for the enclosure to do with relations in Gotha. Handel expresses deep gratitude for the pains Michaelsen took "with regards to the receipts and expenditure from July 1 last year 1732, to July 30, 1733, over the house which my mother left".

    Footnote: Paris-Duverney, Claude Dupin, the King's father, JSBach, Handel: were all Voltaire aliases, Cocchi with small question mark!

    Searching for prominent "Twins Fathers" (#377) , one is bound to fall, sooner or later to Ernst August, *1688, brother of prince George of Hannover , ie King George of GB, no-less!

    Ern(e?)st August fathered William Ernest (b. Weimar, 4 July 1717 – d. Halle, 8 June 1719) and Wilhelmine Auguste (b. Weimar, 4 July 1717 – d. Weimar, 9 December 1752).

    As such, Ernst provides us with so much more than Documentation #3....

    Introductory to 1716 timeline

    With some 180 plus aliases, the task to check each and every one is obvioulsy sisyphean . Nevertheless the top contenders have been checked , some with negative or obscure presence , as follows:

    • 1716 Voltaire(*1688) : In 1716 at 26 because of writing indecent vers against the regent is exiled for a short period at Sully-sur-Loire. (Note: "His" control of France at the time thru cardinal Fleury , the De Muys etc was almost absolute.
    • Jean Phillip Rameau(*1683) : In his Wikipedia biography, year 1716 is not included as….. en janvier 1715 retourne à Lyon. Il retourne à Clermont-Ferrand dès le mois d'avril(1715), muni d'un nouveau contrat à la cathédrale, pour une durée de vingt-neuf ans.
    • William Corbett (18 June 1680 – 7 March 1748) was an English composer, violinist, and concert performer. The Director of New Theatre (Lincoln's Inn Fields, London) from 1700, Corbett was appointed orchestra director of King's Theatre, The Haymarket in 1705 and became a member of the Royal Orchestra in 1709. In 1716, he was appointed Director of the King's Band. From 1715 to 1726, Corbett lived in Italy, returning to London in 1727. It has been speculated that while abroad, Corbett was possibly acting as an agent for the Crown.
    • Louis Henri, Duke of Bourbon, or Louis Henri I, Prince of Condé (18 August 1692 – 27 January 1740) During the Regency he made large amounts of money by speculating in the financial Système (1716–20) of John Law. He bought paper notes, waited for their value to rise, then, before the Système failed in 1720, took them to Law's bank (which had become the national bank) and traded them in for gold. On 3 March 1720, following the example of the Prince de Conti who the day before had gone to Law's bank and withdrawn fourteen million livres in gold in several large carts, Bourbon went to the bank and took away twenty-five million.[29] (Note: 1720 timeline confirms his alias status).
