I think you'll find Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia died in 1951. His eldest son, Prince Wilhelm of Prussia died in 1941, while on active service with the Wehrmacht in the Second World War.

Sorry for not picking up on this sooner:)

She died December 11, 1980. I'm not sure where she died, but I'm sure it was at one of the numerous Hanover properties.

You can see some postcards I have of the family of Princess Viktoria Luise and Prince Ernst August by clicking on the following link:

http://photobucket.com/albums/y138/l...ostmarked1.jpg

*If you click on "next" at the top of the page then you can see more postcards. There are some postcards of other Royal Families from Germany. I still need to put the Prussian Family on "Photobucket.com".

*If anyone has any questions about any of my postcards then please let me know and I will answer them.

Yes I do own all of these postcards. They are all original postcards from the turn of the century. Some are in "mint condition" (never used) and others have been used.

Can you please translate into English the Speech of the Kaiser on the postcard that has his speech written in German? I would like to know what the Kaiser told his people on July 31, 1914.

The building shown in the postcard that says in German: "Germany, Germany Over All" is the building burned down by the Nazis. They blamed a mentally retarded boy for the fire.

Can you also tell me what the following translates into English:

"besichtigt das Denkmal Kaiser Wilhelm I. vor dem Rathause in Bielefeid nach der Enthullungsfeier am 29. August 1907."
(Postcard #16)

Also please translate into English:
"nimmt nach der Enthullungsfeier das Denkmals Kaiser Wilhelm I vor dem Bielefelder Rathause den Ehrentrunk der Stadt Bielefeld entgegen 29 August 1907"
(Postcard #15)

Thank you!

"besichtigt das Denkmal Kaiser Wilhelm I. vor dem Rathause in Bielefeid nach der Enthullungsfeier am 29. August 1907."

visits the memorial Emperor Wilhelm I. in front of the town hall in Bielefeld after the exposure celebration on 29th August 1907

About the Reichstag building: I found a link in english
https://www.vldb.informatik.hu-berli...ew_berlin.html

Ok, now I try the speech, but you should know that I don't speak English that good...

The Emperor says
A hard hour came over Germany today. Envious countries everywhere force us to defeat ourselves fairly. One gives us the sword into our hand. I hope that, if we will not be able to make them judicious in the last hours and keep the peace, we will lead the sword with god's help so, that we will put it back in the sheath with honours. A war would mean enormous victims of goods and blood for the German people.But we would show the enemies what it means to attack Germany. And now I recommend you God! And now go to the church kneel down in front of God and ask him for help for our good army.

What I forgot:
Where do you have all these cards from?
Have you ever been in Germany?

I have been collecting postcards since 1981. I should to go to postcard shows and buy them at the shows. Now I buy them off of Ebay. I have bought some from Ebay sellers who live in Holland, Germany, and Canada. I just bought three more German Royalty cards that I will add to this forum when I receive them.
I was in Germany in 1982. I visited Wiesbaden, Munich, Augsburg, and Koln. I took German in high school back in the mid-1980s. I only remember alittle bit. So that is why I could not translate comepetely the postcards that I have at this time.

Thanks for translating! The link about the "Reichstadt" did not work.

I would like more info on Prince August Wilhelm's son, Prince Alexander Ferdinand. I just bought a cute postcard of this prince. What can you tell me about him?

Why does Prince Eitel Friedrich's wife always look mad or sad in photos? Every photo that I have seen of her shows her looking unhappy. Did this couple have an unhappy marriage? Prince Eitel Friedrich also looked unhappy.

88 years ago to the day Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated the throne of Germany. It seems like it should be longer ago to me but it just illustrates how much the world has changed.

TI&RM Emperor Wilhelm II & Empress Auguste Viktorie, King and Queen of Prussia



Wilhelm II , Deutsche Kaiser und König von Preußen






Auguste Viktorie, Deutsche Kasierin und Königin von Preußen

The Kaiserin was born in 1858, the eldest daughter of the reigning Duke Frederik VIII of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg.

In 1881 she married Prince Wilhelm of Prussia, who became Kaiser Wilhelm II seven years later.

The Kaiserin lived to see the collapse of the German Empire, and died in 1921.

Auguste Viktoria was also the maternal granddaughter of Princess Feodora of Leiningen, Queen Victoria of Great Britain's half sister.

You are right. Victoria saw what he was. I don't know if she took into condiseration how her daughter, Victoria, viewed her son, because of his handicaps, as less than perfect. So, she tired to be loving to him. She, also, got angry with him. But he did love her and she did love him. He was with her at the end. Didn't leave Victoria's side until she died.
