King of Prussia was the title Frederick the Great started using in 1772 after he took over a lot of the Kingdom of Poland.

Before this he had called himself King in Prussia.[1]

The rulers of Berlin kept using the title after they also became German Emperors, up until Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated (resigned) in 1918.
