    He built up the German military machine and under the 'Tirpitz Plan,' he built a naval fleet that rivaled only Great Britain.
    He had an inferiority complex and a love-hate relationship with England and his uncle, Edward VII.
    Some people have claimed that his personality displayed elements of a narcissistic personality disorder.
    At an early age, he became imbued with religious mysticism, militarism, anti-semitism, and the glorification of 'power politics.'

    Two of his sons joined the SA Brownshirts and were fanatic and devoted Nazis.
    He had a brief interest in Nazism.
    He suffered a mental breakdown.
    He relied too much on military adviser.
    He was obsessed with military lifestyle.
    He was accused of raising tension on Britain and France led to WW I.
    Even after defeat in 1918 he continued to dream of world power.
    He had a brief support with the Nazis hoping to restore the monarchy.
    He expressed his German patriotism by sending Hitler a telegram of congratulation after Paris was occupied.
    He was born with a serious birth defect that made his left arm withered and useless.
    The general misconception is that The Kaiser was 'a war monger solely responsible for the First World War.' The basic 'truth' is he did not start the war and he did not want the war.
    He was forced to abdicate from his throne as part of the Armistice of WW I.
    He lose his interest with the Nazis when Hitler refused to restore the monarchy.
    Nazis broke up a celebration honoring his 75th birthday.
    On his will, he requested a full military funeral without swastikas, prayers, and singing.
    Goebbels ordered all German newspapers to note the Kaiser’s passing with a small, one-paragraph obituary on a back page as an insult.
