Preußischen Hof und Staat Handbuch, 1914

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if there is an online resource (preferably open source) for the Handbuch über den Königlich Preußischen Hof und Staat für das Jahr 1914, and where to find it?  One of my continued fascinations and curiosities with the European monarchies before the Great War is the proliferation of gifting orders, medals, and honorary military commissions to members of the royal house, extended family, and to foreign royals.  

This book is the one that would tie everything together (at least for those directly linked to the Prussians) immediately before the war. Always interested in Wilhelm's younger children, I am currently chasing more information on the Hannovers.  The 1908 Handbuch is simply too early to show Ernst August III, Herzog zu Braunschweig-Lüneburg. Incidentally, if you have a wartime source for similar information (full list of orders, medals, commissions) for Ernst August III and his father (the Kronprinz of Hannover), that would be great.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
