Frederick William IV fell into an intense and powerful relationship with Joseph Maria von Radowitz. Frederick William's admiration for his friend's intellect and character was almost literally boundless. Although a great deal has been written about Radowitz and his activities as the driving force behind Prussian foreign policy in 1849 and 1850, he remained a rather elusive and mysterious character, and misunderstandings both of his personality and his place in German history still abound. As a result both of his own personality and his understanding of the king's, Radowitz managed to avoid being assigned to one of those compartments which Frederick William reserved for most of his other friends and advisers. Radowitz was thus one of the more imaginative conservative statesmen of his day.
