August [2]

August, des Vorigen Sohn und Nachfolger in Sachsen und Polen als A. II. und III., geb. 1696; er war pracht- und kunstliebend wie sein Vater, aber nicht ausschweifend. Unter ihm wurde Sachsen in den schlesischen und siebenjährigen Krieg verwickelt, und Friedrich II., der sich Sachsens bemächtigt hatte, nutzte dasselbe dergestalt aus, daß man behaupten kann, er habe sich gegen seine Feinde eigentlich durch Sachsen gehalten. A. III. st. 1763.
