*The Chancellor was Theobald von Bethmann-Hollweg (1856-1921) who had been appointed in 1909 and held the post till 1917. *The Kaiser was William II (1859=1941, reigned 1888-1918). This was the man with the theatrical handlebar moustache, whom the British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, promised to have hanged as a war criminal. By 1914, however, his power had been drastically curbed. Forced to abdicate in 1918. *Perhaps most powerful of all was the Chief of the General Staff, Helmuth von Molkte, the Younger (1848-1916). Resigned in 1914 after the failure of the Schlieffen Plan. Joncey
