What do the members of this NG make of the following?
This could very well be a well-kept secret, but as his illegitimate
son Anders' family now has received their recognition from the
remaining Preussen family in terms of titles I think this article
should be updated to reflect this. Kaiser Wilhelm II had a son in
Norway (Bergen to be exact) between 1898 and 1914 named Anders Fosse.
Up until recently his descendants in Norway has fought for recognition
and earlier this year (I imagine) they got their recognition. This is
extremely hard to find information about on the Internet as I am not
sure it is for everyone to know, so the source on this would have to
be the descendants' respective name changes. Solarclock (talk) 13:00,

Mentioned in the newspaper today in Norway. <http://www.smp.no/nyheter/
alesundogomland/article499359.ece> Son was born in 1905 to Kaizer
Wilhelm and a local unnamed woman from Sogn. The two met in Hardanger
in 1904 and this woman attended many of Kaizer Wilhelm's travels
during Summer time, for several years. The boy was named Anders Fosse
as mentioned, and was adopted by a childrenless married couple after
birth. The connection was confirmed by highest protector of the
family, King of Spain, his majesty King Juan Carlos, this summer.

A couple of questions - what is the basis for the claim that Juan
Carlos is the "highest protector of the family"? What does that mean?
Isn't Prince Georg Friedrich the head of the house? He's a grown man -
why does he need a protector? Second, I'll just note a rather major
error in that the article says Juan Carlos is protector of the
Habsburg family - Kaiser Wilhelm was a Hohenzollern, not a Habsburg.

Here is another article regarding the subject: <http://www.ba.no/
nyheter/article6201889.ece> This one has slightly more information,
and says they got in contact with the aforementioned prince
eventually. I am fairly sure the article referred to earlier is saying
that he is the "protector" (maybe 'guardian' could be a more precise
word?) to both the Habsburgs and the Hohenzollerns. Citing the article
it says (translated to English): "As the german emperor house (?) does
no longer exist it is King of Spain, his majesty King Juan Carlos, who
is the highest protector of the kaizer-heritage." Solarclock (talk)
