Never read much about Kaiser Friederich III but I assume that due to his advanced cancer his 99 days reign was a mere footnote without any major event.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Friederich died aged 56.
His father Kaiser Wilhelm I died aged almost 91.
Wilhelm II succeeded to the throne aged 29.
Had his father had lived until the 80s or even 90s, being a more reasonable person, we might not have had loony Kaiser Bill at the helm of WW1.
Unless he would have been storing all his frustrations for 30 years during his father's reign .
