This article reviews a number of recent publications on Kaiser Wilhelm II in the Netherlands in order to reflect on the place of Wilhelm II in this country’s history. With the flight of Wilhelm II to the Netherlands on 10 November 1918 an ‘involuntary relationship’ began, which necessarily reflected the Dutch perception of the Great War but also of Germany itself. Huis Doorn, the residence Wilhelm II used for the greater part of the twenty-three years he spent in the Netherlands, thus turned into an unlikely place of memory, the meaning of which has recently been renegotiated.
