August 30, 1916
The remains of Prince Maximilian of Hesse, nephew of Kaiser Wilhelm II, at Hazebrouck, in northeaster France, have been found, reports the Washington Post. The discovery "definitely establishes his death."
Prince Maximilian was the second of six sons of Prince Friedrich Karl of Hesse and his wife, Princess Margarete of Prussia. He was one week short of his 20th birthday, when he was killed in action in France on October 13, 1914.
