Kaiser Wilhelm II, R. I. P.

Today marks the anniversary of the death of the last Germany emperor, Wilhelm II. Unfairly maligned and the victim of allied propaganda, he was a much better ruler than given credit for. (I suspect that much of the bad blood between him and his uncle Edward VI had to do with the affection Queen Victoria had for her eldest grandson. This in turn helped lead to World War I.)
