One in five Germans would like to see the monarchy restored, according to a survey released on Thursday. Young Germans were even keener on replacing the president with a new Kaiser.
Despite swelling support among the young, most Germans still oppose the idea. 51 percent of all respondents said that having a king or queen would cost too much money. Sixty nine percent said they were completely against the idea.

Wow. Really? No one teaches history any more do they.
Yeah, that’s what the world needs: another generation of fired-up Germans.
What was lost has been restored.
Anyone remember what was said by George III following the American Revolution? He stated: “ The world has been turned upside-down.” He was talking about the “ancien regime” with monarchs supported by the elites, who were all supported by the labors of the peasants. Some have been working for the restoration of that particular order eversince.
This makes me smile. I very much want to see the return of the Hohenzollerns.
If the Germans had kept the Kaiser, there would be no Hitler.
Which costs Americans more - the Queen or the current consort to King Obama?
When the Nazis took power, they absolutely forbade the exiled Kaiser to return to Germany & he died in exile in a house provided by his friend, Queen Wilhelmina of Holland.
Kaiser Bill respected Dutch neutrality in WWI. When he died, the occupying Germans placed a guard of honor around the Doorn house. Hitler ordered it immediately withdrawn.
Crown Prince Ruprecht remained a popular choice for monarch well after WWII. Where are his descendants?
“Yeah, thats what the world needs: another generation of fired-up Germans”
If it kicks Islam out of Europe then that is exactly what the West needs.
Well the ones they kick out can't come here. America already has too many ragheads as it is.
Heil dir im Siegerkranz!
We sure could use some right now.
I object to the term “ragheads” as it reflects poorly on Sikhs, who I like quite well.
Regarding the Middle Eastern types who the term is presumably directed at, see tagline.
My ancestors were poor, but extremely good looking. The men in my family regularly served as male versions of concubines to queens and princesses in Europe. In Germany, the female royalty called them “Der Gross Leibe Panzers”. The male aristocracy had several names for them that all roughly translate to “Randy Sons-Of-B**ches”. The men in my family all have the ability to dress while running from palace guards. We aren’t royalty, but we’ve been as close to royalty as you can get. Vive l’amour!
Not sure, they are in a list somewhere which is being kept. My family were German emigre’s before the First War - never supported Hitler. Were appalled by how it all turned out under Weimar and very thankful they got out.
...and 4 out of 5 don't have a clue of the horrific lesson Germany received in the 20'th century. It must be the compulsory state-run education doing its numbing work.
Exactly. And possibly no Lenin.
Well, we can't have that now can we!? ;) After all, what are Progressives Progressing too!?
That is why they were so active in Post-Kaiser Germany.
It’s a good thing that the Khalistanis (Punjab separatists) don’t represent all Sikhs by far, as well.
We fought against the Second Reich in WWI, led by the last Kaiser, who abdicated. No reason to conclude that the absence of a Kaiser was a cause for the war that followed.
Obviously nothing came of that.
Uh, wasn’t Kaiser Wilhelm the crazy warmongering Kaiser who plunged Germany into a losing war due to his reckless foreign policy and obsession with pursuing an arms race with the Royal Navy?
Read less comic books.
After a 19-year-old terrorist killed the heir to the Austrian throne, the Austrian went after Serbia, the source of the weapons (although the Serbian government as such wasn't guilty of sending the weapons into Bosnia).
After 19 Al Qaeda terrorists attacked the US, George W. Bush went after Afghanistan, the Al Qaeda sanctuary, although the Afghan government as such had not caused 9/11.
After a 19-year-old Chechen terrorist and his older brother pulled off a terrorist attack in Boston, there is no likelihood that the current administration will take any steps against the people who aided the terrorists.
I need to ask Calypso Louie what it all means...he is an expert on the number 19.
Really? They want a bunch of inbred cretins like Hohezollerns back?
Uh, yeah, its pretty well known that Wilhelm II ditched Bismark and his cautious foreign policy in pursuit of a reckless attempt to emulate the Royal Navy (Britain was very cagey about its Naval Supremacy, otherwise it would have been a natural German ally). He also gave Austria carte blanche to do what he liked to Serbia, when an otherwise more moderate response might have been attempted.
It was natural for any great power to pursue parity on the high seas. In the handling of the Sarajevo crisis Germany was in the right, or at least perceived itself to be in the right. The Keiser, of course, shares the responsibility along with other great powers of the time, but there was nothing war-mongering or crazy about seeking justice to be rendered to what we today call “terrorists”.
