German Grand Admiral, Minister of State and Commander of the Kaiserliche Marine in World War I from 1914 until 1916.
An energetic promoter for a greatly enlarged fleet, he championed the 'Fleet Acts' of 1898, 1900, 1908 and 1912 which by 1914 had given Germany the second largest naval force in the world. After the war he became head of the conservative Deutschnationalen Volkspartei (DNVP, Fatherland Party) and was elected to the Reichstag from 1924 until 1928.
