German royal family, the oldest son of Emperor Frederick III and Princess Victoria. He took the throne in 1888, received a military education and was the last emperor of Germany. As he was a powerful ruler, Germany prospered under his reign. Wilhelm married twice and had seven kids.
The last German emperor and King of Prussia who rules from June 1888 to the end of WW I in November 1918. The eldest grandson of Queen Victoria, first cousin to King George V of England, and second cousin to Tsar Nikolas II. Taking the crown in 1888 he dismisses Bismark as Chancellor in 1890 and leads Germany on a combative and aggressive “New Course” in foreign affairs that culminates in his support of Austria-Hungary in the crisis of July 1914 and leads to World War 1. His role in the conduct of the war as well as his responsibility for its outbreak is still controversial. Some historians maintain Wilhelm was controlled by his generals. Others argue he maintain considerable political power. Toward the end of WW 1 with Europe in ruins and Germany about to lose the war the Army removes its support of Wilhelm and he abdicates in November 1918, fleeing to Netherlands.
The Emperor died on 6/04/1941, Doorn, Netherlands.
