Why was the king so beloved by his people?
Even as a child, his teachers taught him that all people deserved respect, regardless of their status and origin. And that was how Wilhelm II acted as king. Again and again, he would speak with passerby on his walks without being recognized. When people in need turned to him with their problems, he tried to help them. The people of Württemberg called the king "e gueter Ma", or "a good man."
