The stereograph shows, standing on the left, Kaiser Wilhelm II, the last Emperor of Germany and the last King of Prussia. He was also the first grandchild of Queen Victoria and of course the leader who lead Germany into the pointless war that caused the deaths of millions of people on both sides of the conflict. Standing next to him is his son and heir, also called Wilhelm. Presumably the Empress is the one sat at the table. Wilhelm II abdicated in 1918 after Germany’s defeat and went into exile in the Netherlands. He died in 1941.
