Cousins, sometimes friends most of the time enemies...but cousins regardless...Is eerie how they were all related, and of course cousins of Edward in England as well, and they couldn't live peacefully with each other.

In the photo the Kaiser's withered arm is carefully hidden. He had an awful childhood and needed to prove himself. The British couklld have saved the Tsar but refused. Not much family love there.
