A fresh and revealing Life of one of the most maligned figures in European history: the German Kaiser whose bellicose actions and wild rhetoric led to the outbreak of the Great War which he almost immediately regretted. Visionary or half mad fool? This book will help you make up your own mind.
Wilhelm II (27 January 1859 – 4 June 1941) was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and King of Prussia, ruling the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia from 15 June 1888 to 9 November 1918. He was the eldest grandson of Britain's Queen Victoria, and related to many monarchs and princes of Europe. He came to the throne in 1888 and ruled in peace for twenty-five years. Wilhelm's father Friedrich died prematurely of throat cancer, and Wilhelm succeeded him aged twenty-nine and became the icon of the new ‘Wilhelminian' age. Germany excelled in commerce, agriculture, trade, science, cars, the arts, and medicine. Already boasting Europe's greatest army, Wilhelm set about winning world power via acquiring overseas colonies and building a vast Imperial High Seas Fleet that rivalled Britain's. Eventually, he was defeated in the First World War by the combined forces of the UK, US, France and Russia, and driven into exile by red revolution at home. He remained politically active in exile, pressing for a return to the monarchy up to his death in 1941. This is a fresh look at a much maligned figure, including his relationships with Bismarck, Hindenburg, Tirpitz, King Edward VII and Tsar Nicholas II, all on the precipice of global change. Was Wilhelm a visionary, a fool, or both?
