Otto von Parseval took command of II. Army Corps. Von Keller remained
as Parseval's chief of staff until March 1892, when he was selected to

resulted in his being raised to the knighthood one month later. His son
Friedrich von Keller served as a German diplomat prior to and during
the Second World War.
