Which king created and admired a regiment of giant soldiers?

William I of Prussia
Tsar Peter the Great
Napoleon Bonaparte
William of Orange
The king, who was about 1.6 meters himself, created a regiment called commonly called "Potsdam Giants", for which the required height was 1.88 meters, well above average then and now. William I loved the regiment - he trained and drilled it every day. He tried to obtain tall soldiers by any means - re­cruit­ed tall mer­ce­nar­ies from all of Europe, received tall recruits as gifts from other monar­ch­s, and even even kid­napped tall priests and monks.
