London : Experts have claimed that Kaiser Wilhelm Il’s “incestuous obsession” with his mother, Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, was behind his hatred of Britain.
British historian John Rohl asserted that Wilhelm had a crush on his mother and wanted to gain her love after a tormented childhood, the Independent reported. Rohl, professor of history at Sussex University, explained that Wilhelm had suffered a permanently paralyzed arm as a result of nerve damage while an English doctor was delivering him.
Meanwhile Dr Brett Kahr, a psychologist and trustee of the Freud Museum, said that Wilhelm started writing letters to his mother and devoted his sexual energies to her and in particular to her very beautiful hands.
Since his mother did not reciprocate his feelings, Wilhelm became bitter towards her and her country. Wilhelm’s hatred for Britain worsened in 1888 when
an English doctor unsuccessfully tried to treat his father for throat cancer.
