I love unusual titles so I must note that he wasn't "Kaiser" (Emperor) of Germany but rather German Emperor. |
I stand by my statement at the Benelux board that Huis Doorn should be turned over to His Imperial and Royal Highness the Prince of Prussia, as unlikely as that is (which is very).
: June 4, 1941 former Kaiser Wilhelm II of
: Germany, King of Prussia died at Huis Doorn
: in the Netherlands at the age of 82. The
: Kaiser had been living in the Netherlands in
: exile since the end of World War I in 1918
: and moved in to Huis Doorn in 1920. He was
: buried in a mausoleum in the grounds of Huis
: Doorn attended by members of his family and
: Field Marshal August von Mackensen along
: with a few other military advisers. His body
: has never been returned to Germany out of
: respect for his wish that his body should
: only be returned there if and when the
: monarchy is reestablished. Huis Doorn is now
: a museum open to the public but recent
: financial difficulties may result in the
: building being shut down and sold.
