Kaiser Wilhelm II was a nephew of Edward the Seventh who was King of England and Emperor of India from 1901 to 1910. The Kaiser's mother was Edward's older sister. Considerably younger than his uncle, Wilhelm acceded to the thrones of Prussia and the German Empire 13 years before the aging Prince of Wales became King upon the death of his mother, Queen Victoria. That fact exacerbated the abrasive relationship between the two.
