You might as well also have Wilhelm II not be a breech baby and thus not having a crippled arm as a result of being pulled out of the womb with forceps. Or, alternatively, you could have Wilhelm II die young and have his younger brother Heinrich become the new German Kaiser in 1888.Well. All I can say is... Interestig.
I believe you've provided a new addition to my list of "Most crucial (potential in this case) deaths". Another favourite of mine is if Wilhelm II:s father hadn't gotten throat cancer so early, or if Wilhelm I might have died just a couple of years earlier. Things could have been so different...
But this is a whole other diskussion haha
Another interesting scenario is if Austro-Hungarian Crown Prince Rudolf has a son instead of a daughter back in 1883. That would mean that Franz Ferdinand never becomes heir to the Austro-Hungarian thrones.
