By most accounts a pompous douche, but I still feel kinda sorry for him. Because he failed so completely. And had to live with that failure for another 23 years after abdicating the German throne and fleeing the country. In my mind in this pic he’s trying to put on the proud Prussian front. But it’s a lie. He’s old and tired and his lost throne haunts him every night in his dreams. He fears the judgement of History. Maybe worse, being forgotten by History.
