Kaiser Wilhelm was the German Emperor and ruled the Kingdom of Prussia. He had this role between June 15th, 1888, and November 9th, 1918. Kaiser Wilhelm wanted his German empire to be more powerful. He even wanted some of Europe to be a part of it. His aggressive actions caused countries like the U.K and France to worry that Europe being a part of the German empire might happen. Because of this, alliances were made and countries got ready for war. But when it did come, Kaiser Wilhelm did not make a big impact.

After The War
After they lost the war, Kaiser Wilhelm and his German empire had troubles. All the allies of Germany wanted to get rid of the Kaiser for making them fight. Because of this, Kaiser Wilhelm was forced to abdicate in late 1918, and died in 1941 at the age of 82.
