When the German states united as a single German Empire in 1871, Friedrich became heir to the new German monarchy with his father as Kaiser. Never liked by the powerful German Chancellor Bismarck, who distrusted his wife's liberalism, Friedrich was always kept out of any real position of power throughout his father's life. By the time his father died in 1888, Friedrich had incurable cancer of the larynx, which had been misdiagnosed by the English doctor Morell Mackenzie (later knighted by Queen Victoria). As a result of the misdiagnosis, surgery that might have cured the cancer was canceled in 1887. When the error was caught, it was too late to operate. Later swelling by the tumor caused the prince to begin to suffocate, and so on February 9, 1888, a tracheotomy was performed and a silver tube was put into the prince's wind pipe. As a result of this operation, Friedrich was unable to speak for the remainder of his life, and communicated through writing. Friedrich ruled for only 99 days before his death, being succeeded by his son Wilhelm II.

German emperor, born in Innsbruck, W Austria, the son of Duke Ernst der Eiserne of Austria.
He succeeded Albrecht II von Habsburg in 1440 and was the last German emperor to be crowned by the pope in Rome (1452).
The engagement of his son Maximilian, later Emperor Maximilian I, in 1477 to Marie, daughter of Charles the Bold, brought a large portion of the Burgundian domains under Habsburg rule, thus making Austria a major power.
History of the Monarchy > The Hanoverians > Victoria (1234 words)
She was the only daughter of Edward, Duke of Kent, fourth son of George III.
Her father died shortly after her birth and she became heir to the throne because the three uncles who were ahead of her in succession - George IV, Frederick Duke of York, and William IV - had no legitimate children who survived.
In 1864, Victoria pressed her ministers not to intervene in the Prussia-Austria-Denmark war, and her letter to the German Emperor (whose son had married her daughter) in 1875 helped to avert a second Franco-German war.
