Emperor Wilhelm II on an inspection expedition in Romania: The Emperor considers tools that destroy weapons that use kerosene, used by the English at the Romanian Front.

Wilhelm II (Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert, January 27, 1859 – June 4, 1941) was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and King of Prussia. He reigned from June 15, 1888 until his abdication on November 9, 1918, shortly before Germany's defeat in World War I. By the outbreak of war in Europe in 1914, Romania had long been at odds with Austria-Hungary over the issue of territory—specifically Transylvania, which was ethnically Romanian but at that time part of Hungary. On August 18, 1916, the Romanian government signed a secret treaty with the Allies. By its terms, in the event of an Allied victory, Romania would acquire Transylvania up to the River Theiss, the province of Bukovina to the River Pruth, and the entire Banat region---all territory under Austro-Hungarian control. On August 27, Romania fulfilled its treaty obligation by declaring war against Austria-Hungary.
