Prussian general
Hermann von Tresckow was Kaiser Wilhelm I's Military Cabinet Chief in the years leading up to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. He entered military service in 1835 when he joined the elite Kaiser Alexander Regiment in Berlin. He then saw his first action during the First Schleswig War of 1848 to 1851. A few years thereafter saw him serving as an aide-de-camp to Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. In 1864, von Tresckow was brought into King Wilhelm I's Military Cabinet to head up the personal affairs section, later replacing General Edwin Freiherr von Manteuffel as Chief of the Military Cabinet.

During the Franco-Prussian War, General von Tresckow requested a field command and so was given charge of 17th Infantry Division, seeing action in LeMans and Orleans. He was brought back into the Kaiser's Great Headquarters as an Adjutant General in January of 1871, and then soon returned to his previous position as head of the Kaiser's Military Cabinet. When the Franco-Prussia hostilities ended, General von Tresckow returned to troop service, first commanding 19th Infantry Division and then serving as commander of IX. Army Corps from 1873 to 1888, when he retired from active duty as Kaiser Wilhelm II came to power. General von Tresckow died in 1900 in Wartenberg in der Neumark.
