June 2016: 75 years since the death of Kaiser Wilhelm II
June 2016 marks 75 years since the death of Kaiser Wilhelm II (the last German Emperor and King of Prussia; 27 January 1859 – 4 June 1941):
Wilhelm II became emperor of Germany in 1888 following the death of Frederick II. He is today remembered as on one of the most recognisable public figures of World War I. Following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary on 28 June 1914, Wilhelm incited Austria-Hungary to exact revenge against Serbia, leading to the events that eventually sparked the outbreak of war.
