|Archduchy of Lurk|
|Also known as||Hohenfriedberger March|
The National anthem of the Archduchy of Lurk or Aurora Nova, Nova Victoria , macronationally Der Hohenfriedberger Marsch is the national anthem of the Archduchy of Lurk. It is Lurk's second anthem, after God save the Tsar. It was proposed anthem for a very long time, along with the Internationale. The Prime Minister of Lurk Federation decided to rather adopt neutral song than song about worldwide revolution to not worsen relations with anti-socialist allies and the cultural switch to Prussian culture in Lurk.
History as AnthemEdit
The anthem was adopted with change of Lurkish flag and cultural shift to Prussian culture. Friedrich der Große, composer of the march, also fought a battle on soil where is Lurk located (Battle of Prague). Since Fridedrich der Große is greatly admired in Lurk, the anthem change was accepted greatly.
History as a military marchEdit
Der Hohenfriedberger Marsch is one of most known German military marches, possibly due to parts being used in more known march, Der Königgratzer Marsch. The march takes it's name from Prussian victory over Austrians and Saxons in battle of Hohenfriedberger during Second Silesian War.

- ↑ Refers to Otto Magnus von Schwerin, the regiment's Colonel. He's not to be confused with his contemporary Kurt Christoph, Graf von Schwerin (no relation), the famous Prussian Field Marshal.
- ↑ "They" refers to the Austrians, still positioned on the Friedburg Heights above them.
- ↑ The uniforms of the allied Austrian and Saxon forces were white, like fresh snow. The speaker is boasting that the close-packed white-coated Austrians would melt away before the Dragoons' charge like a field of springtime snow.
- ↑ The Prussian 5th (Bayreuther) Dragoon Regiment (later renamed the Ansbach-Bayreuth Dragoons) destroyed 20 battalions of Austrian and Saxon troops and captured 2,500 prisoners and 67 regimental standards. This forced Prince Charles of Lorraine to retreat.
