I'm not so sure!This same story, "Cousin to the Kaiser", came down all Branches of descendants from my gggrandfather, George Wilhelm, Bavarian Imigrant, who first surfaced in Dearborn County, Indiana. I have been trying to research the Kaiser Wilham II family, but cannot find a full family chart. These charts tend to follow the more important line (those who became famous) rather than list aunts, uncles, brothers, etc.Another rumor is that my ancestor changed his name from "Weidle".I would guess that if any of these are cousins to the Kaiser II, that they were "marry- ins". Real family name of the Kaiser was Hohenzollern. He was the son of the Princess Victoria of England and Frederick III of Prussia, the grandson of Queen Victoria.So, the relationship (if it is true), has to be on the paternal side. I think this is a dead end, but I don't want to give it up either.
