Auguste Viktoria was the last German empress. She married Kaiser Wilhelm II. in 1881, although many regarded the match as not befitting. If her letters are to be believed, it was a marriage of love. The empress regularly spent her summers at Glücksburg Palace, where her bedroom can still be seen today. The Emperor often travelled with her, but preferred to spend the nights on his yacht "Hohenzollern", which was anchored in the Flensburg Fjord. Whenever the Emperor stayed at the palace, large dinners were held. A dinner table from that period was recreated and can be seen in the palace. Auguste left her mark on the Empire as a socially committed mother of her nation for 30 years, before she died in exile in Holland in 1921.
