EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage lantern slide depicts Kaiser Wilhelm II, the German Emperor, dressed in traditional Muslim attire, adorned with a fez and a long robe, affectionately known as Hajji Willhelm. The image captures a unique moment in history, highlighting Wilhelm's role as a protector and advocate for the Muslim community during his reign from 1888 to 1918. Kaiser Wilhelm II was known for his interest in the Ottoman Empire and its rich Islamic culture. In 1898, he embarked on a journey to the Holy Land, visiting Jerusalem and other significant religious sites. During this visit, he donned the traditional Muslim attire, symbolizing respect and solidarity with the local population. This gesture was widely appreciated by the Muslim community and helped to strengthen diplomatic relations between Germany and the Ottoman Empire. The photograph, taken during the Victorian or Edwardian era, showcases the grandeur and opulence of the period. The intricately designed robe and the noble expression on Wilhelm's face convey a sense of dignity and respect. The use of a lantern slide further adds to the antique charm of the image, transporting us back in time to an era of exploration, cultural exchange, and diplomacy. The Keasbury-Gordon Photograph Archive Collection, from which this image is sourced, is a valuable resource for historians, researchers, and anyone interested in the history of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This image of Kaiser Wilhelm II as Hajji Willhelm not only offers a glimpse into the past but also sheds light on the complex and fascinating relationship between Europe and the Islamic world during this period.
