Kaiser Wilhelm II’s yacht Hohenzollern was launched in 1892. Using the then latest ship technology, the armoured yacht was a clear signal of his ambitions to build and sustain a world-class navy. This luxury toy model is based on the yacht, and was first mentioned in the 1899 catalogue of the famous toymaker ‘Gebrüder Bing’. Photo taken at the National History Museum of Romania.
