About this Item

Maroon cloth on boards. Owners name and date of the front fep. Volume has fraying at the spine, and the spine ends, moreso at the head of the spine. From Wikipedia: "Princess Hermine Reuss of Greiz, was the second wife of William II, German Emperor, and as such used the titles of German Empress and Queen of Prussia. In January 1922, a son of Princess Hermine sent birthday wishes to the German Emperor William, who then invited the boy and his mother to Doorn. William found Hermine very attractive, and greatly enjoyed her company. The two had much in common, both being recently widowed. Hermine just over a year and a half before, and William just 9 months prior. By early 1922, William was determined to marry Hermine. Despite grumblings from William's monarchist supporters and the objections of his children, 63 year old William and 34 year old Hermine married on 9 November 1922 in Doorn. By all accounts it was a happy marriage. In 1927 Hermine wrote An Empress in Exile: My Days in Doorn, an account of her life up to that time. Hermine remained a constant companion to the aging emperor until his death in 1941. They had no children. Hermine returned to Germany, to her first husband's estate in Silesia after the emperor's death, though she lived for only 6 more years, dying at the age of 59. Since 1945 she was held in house arrest in Frankfurt an der Oder in the Soviet Zone of Germany.". Bookseller Inventory # JB13740
