Wilhelm II (German: Friedrich Wilhelm Victor Albert; English: Frederick William Victor Albert) (27 January 1859 – 4 June 1941) in OTL was the last German Emperor and King of Prussia, ruling both the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia from 15 June 1888 to 9 November 1918. He was the son of Frederick III, grandson of the first German emperor Wilhelm I and also a grandson of Queen Victoria of the British Empire. He was known either as The Kaiser or Kaiser Bill during World War I.

In 1890, he fired Otto von Bismarck who had built the German Empire.

In ATLs where he doesn't die, isn't toppled, or steps back, he'd have surpassed his ancestor Friedrich Wilhelm, the great Elector, on November 14th in 1935 as the longest ruler of Brandenburg/Prussia.
