7. One factor out of several can explain the last Kaiser.

He was born with a malformed right arm of which he was ashamed. He felt like a freak.

Another factor was he was competing with other European rulers who literally were his first cousins, e.g., King Edward, Nicholas (Tsar of Russia), having Queen Victoria as their grandmother. It was a competition for dominance in the family as well as for colonies and regarding having the strongest military.
