WAS ONLY A DREAM.
Throughout his reign of a quarter
of a century, the German kaiser had
but one ambition, "to Teutonize the
world." He subordinated everything
else to his ambitions.
It was through the kaiser's de
mands that both were raised to sec
ond place among the nations. It
was the same with the German army.
The vast German military machine
was actually the child of the kaiser's
Because he taught and practiced
the theory that only through mili
tary and naval supremacy could Ger
many arrive at a "place in the sun,"
the kaiser became known as the war
Although he forced out Bismarck
the "iron chancellor," the emperor
followed Bismarck's teaching that
only by the "mailed fist" could Ger
many live and grow.
His oft-repeated insistence that
he ruled by divine right aided him
in carrying out his policies. It
tended to make his subjects, both
high and low, more subservient to
his demands and whims.
As the German empire grew from
a population of 47,000,000 to 67,-
000,000, and to a place in the com
mercial world surpassing in some
lines even Great Britain, his in
fluence and power increased.
The kaiser was born January 27.

when he was born the main nerves
of his left arm were so strained that
the arm became shriveled and has
hung useless ever since. Since child
hood he has had to us? a specially

served as a knife as well.

The kaiser was the ninth monarch
of the house of Hohenzollern. He
was the third of that family to

He married Princess Augusta Vic
toria, daughter of the Duke of Au-
gustenburg, in 1881. He was crown
ed king of Prussia and emperor of
Germany June 5, 1S88.
The crown Prince, Frederick Wil- '
helm, was born May 6. 1882. He
was married in 1005 to Duchess
Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwarin.
The crown prince aspired to become
one of the great military leaders of
history. His efforts were all dismal
failures, he being charged particu
larly with the bloody and fruitless
effort to reduce Verdun fortress and
the failure of the scries of German
offensives which began in March,
