Germany Project Germany before 1871 and Kaiser Wilhelm

Germany before 1871 was quite a prosperous country that had quite a large empire. There were three Kaisers in the period that I am talking about, (the middle and late 1800 s) they were called Frederick III and he was later succeeded by Wilhelm I and Wilhelm was succeeded by Wilhelm II; Wilhelm s son. Frederick had created and extended on what had created when he had just ruled Prussia, however it was the two Wilhelm s that really took Germany and got them somewhere; although later on, in the 1920 s; Wilhelm II isn t too popular with the German people. The German Empire was then one of the most prosperous and powerful industrial empires in the world. Then in 1971, German states all unified together among other states to make an empire. This was because of a war that the French had with the Prussians; Germany had aided the Prussians in this war in which they won and therefore created the alignment otherwise known as the German Empire . However Austria was not included in this empire. Then in 1888, a new Kaiser was crowned. This Kaiser was Wilhelm II; he would then be known as the last Kaiser of Germany before the massive Revolution of Germany in 1918. Not much really happened in the late 19th century then, except for the country had been doing really well in all aspects really. However in the 20th century, Germany started entering the period where everything would go wrong and cause the massive downfall of the German Empire. Germany then entered a battle (the battle wasn t made public until the announcement of World War I ) with Great Britain (among other countries that later formed the allies ) over general assets that each country had, this basically included who had superior weapons, money etc. Britain were the country that mainly won this battle , however in 1914 a small group of Serbians who called themselves the Black Hand killed the Austrian Archduke called Franz Ferdinand
