  • diter for PAULUS Friedrich Wilhelm von (Paulus)
  • What childish mistake! Friedrich Wilhelm PAULUS belonged to the aristocrat class, although, according to contemporaries, and has always behaved like an aristocrat, for what some called him sly Lord. It does not belong to the nobility, he could not and did not have a prefix before the name VON. Never. And one more thing - his name was not Paulus, but Paulus - with two Y. Sincerely, Dmitry Yatskaer.
