(02.04.1826 - 25.06.1914)
place of birth:  Meiningen
Herzogtum Sachsen-Meiningen:  Herzog,  General der Infanterie


Duke Georg II.
reigned over the Duchy of Saxen-Meiningen until his death in June 1914 prior to the outbreak of World War One. He was succeeded by his son Bernhard III., with whom he had served during the Franco-German War of 1870-71. Georg II. supported wholeheartedly the theater arts and culture during his reign, and likewise sought to reform the political aspects of his duchy. His general political views and desire for the German States to maintain close ties with England brought him into conflict with the Hohenzollern leadership.
