This chapter will discuss how Luise Ulrike, Princess of Prussia and Queen of Sweden, used culture to create political spaces (or places). The Academy of Literature, History and Antiquities founded by her in 1753 is one such space/place. The chapter will show that the Academy was one of several attempts to use culture as a tool or weapon to reach a political goal and will also put these spaces/places in a European context and discuss where Luise Ulrike got her inspiration from.
