The Emperor of Germany is the official head of state and once the absolute hereditary ruler of Germany, beginning with the crowning of Wilhelm I following the Franco-Prussian War of 1870.



Wilhelm I is proclaimed Emperor of Germany

Following the German Empire's victory in World War I, the power of the monarchy seemed secure. However, the onset of the Great Depression and various extremist movements resulted in the monarchy transferring more power to the elected Parliament. When France took over Germany in World War II, Emperor Wilhelm III fled Germany, with the French abolishing the monarchy and dismantling the empire. Upon Germany's liberation, the German emperors became counselors for the South German government. Upon Germany's reunification in 2003, the emperor was no longer titular, with Emperor Georg Friedrich becoming the head of state of Germany. However, the emperor no longer has any real power, with Germany now being a constitutional monarchy.
