Commonly known as Crown Prince Wilhelm, he was named Prince Friedrich Wilhelm Victor August Ernst. His parents were Kaiser Wilhelm II and Kaiserin Augusta Victoria. At the time of his birth, his great-grandfather Kaiser Wilhelm I was German Emperor. On June 6, 1905, he married Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. They had six children. The Crown Prince mixed in military circles and was actively involved on the Western Front during World War I. The Hohenzollern dynasty collapsed in November 1918 and the Crown Prince went into exile with his father in the Netherlands. In 1923 he was allowed to finally return to his family in Germany on the condition that he would not engage in politics. Kaiser Wilhelm II remained in exile and forbade his son from running as a candidate for President. Upon Wilhelm II's death in 1941, the Crown Prince became head of the House of Hohenzollern. Tragically his eldest son had been killed in battle.
