The Hohenzollern's are a German family, originating in Württemberg, the main branch of which held the titles of elector of Brandenburg from 1415, king of Prussia from 1701, and German emperor from 1871.
The Hohenzollern Crown was made for Kaiser Wilhelm ll, Emperor of Germany, in 1888. It contains a large sapphire, cut en-cabuchon, supporting a diamond studded cross, plus a 142 rose cut diamonds, 18 brilliant diamonds and 8 superb large pearls. He was born in Berlin to Crown Prince Friedrich and his wife, Britain's Princess Royal, Victoria. His mother was the aunt of Empress Alexandra (the wife of Tsar Nicholas II), and the sister of King Edward VII. Queen Victoria was his grandmother. On the death of Wilhelm I on March 9, 1888, his father was crowned Emperor as Friedrich III, but he was dying of throat cancer and in June that same year Wilhelm II succeeded him as Emperor. He was the Emperor during World War I where he was Commander in Chief but he soon lost all control of German policy and his popularity plunged. As a result of the explosion of the German Revolution, the Kaiser's abdication was announced by Max von Baden on November 9, 1918. Wilhelm went into exile in the Netherlands, where he was permitted to retain the family jewels including this crown. 
Kaiser Wilhelm II died in Doorn on June 5, 1941 with the German occupiers on guard at the gates of his estate. He is buried in Huis Doorn, Doorn, Netherlands. His wish that no swastikas be displayed at his funeral was not heeded.
During the Second World War it was hidden in a wall in the crypt of a church and later returned to the Hohenzollern family. It is currently kept at the family residence of the Schloss Hohenzollern.
