Thanks for the picture. I'd just do the brain swap and the back, and maybe the heart replacement if they ever get something like the Fallout ones. And definitely eyes.

>How?

The current best explanation is that Wilhelm II suffered brain damage during delivery.

He was a breech birth, Vicky had a long & horrific labor, and they eventually had to use forceps to pull him out. Vicky was in such bad shape by then that the doctors & midwives focused on stabilizing her before checking on the baby. They realized far to late that they'd crushed his left arm, although in 1859 there wouldn't have been much they could do for it anyway.

So, he most likely suffered from some amount of oxygen deprivation during delivery and ended up with a withered arm too which would further effected his emotional development.

>> No.38555231

>>38547541
To put it simply, despite having a promising nation that was well on its way to becoming THE major power there were a number of problems. First of Wilhelm was an intelligent but erratic man, he had deep personal insecurities, was impulsive and had a long standing enmity towards England. This induced him to follow several policies to compete with England but frequently without the infrastructure or planning generally required to do so, for example in his desire to build a naval fleet that would rival Englands; a fundamentally short sighted endeavor as Germany had no major external colonies and a poor naval track record whilst England was enforced to maintain a large fleet to defend its many (profitable) colonies and England. This led to the anglo-german arms race and rising tensions between the two countries.

Furthermore, the democratic pressures of the countries poor and middle classes were finally starting to have an effect. The old aristocracy of German had already started to see a decline and replacement by the skilled craftsmen and business owners of Germany's relatively early industrialisation at the end of the 19th century. Despite autocratic tendencies, Germany was slowly but surely becoming a democracy as the power of the Reichstag waxed. This was disastrous for the German army and Generals who, at the time, were under the authority of the Emperor only and they ceaselessly urged him to raise tensions in an attempt to conquer more land and gain some glory. For them it was only a matter of time before they were leashed to the reichstag, it already dictated their budget and at the time were facing demands that more powers be signed over.

Add to this that the international diplomacy was notably poor, Germany had a deep dislike of France at the time due in part to the Paris commune (Grrr socialism) and the after effects of the Franco-Prussian war whilst maintaining a good set of relations with Austria-Hungry who had a number of disputes with Russia.
