1. Varga, Márton. Lloyd George, the New Liberals, and the British Parliament, 1906-1914 .

Degree: DE – Bölcsészettudományi Kar, University of Debrecen

With the Queen Victoria's death, his son, Edward VII came to the throne who lacked the political ambition of his mother, he followed a rather bohemian life. Conservatives were in power but none of them wanted considerable changes in British politics. However, the challenges of the new century were already in the doorstep. It was the 'Welsh wizard' Lloyd George and his Liberal Party who fought a fierce campaign to answer these challenges. Our thesis concludes the main events of the period between 1906-1914 and answers all the questions concerning the rise and decline of the Liberal Party. Advisors/Committee Members: Borus, György (advisor).

2. Bartone, Christopher M. Royal Pains: Wilhelm II, Edward VII, and Anglo-German Relations, 1888-1910.

Degree: MA, History, 2012, University of Akron

The personal animosity between King Edward VII of the United Kingdom and Kaiser Wilhelm II of the German Empire is an overlooked factor in the dramatic shift in relations between the two countries during the years prior to World War I. Both men grew up in the shadow of Queen Victoria, and both had difficulties fitting into their expected roles within the family hierarchy. Edward was an unplanned child, and became the black sheep of the British Royal Family; he drank heavily and chased women. Wilhelm was caught between two worlds, English and German, and struggled to be accepted by both. One result of their common dilemma, and their vastly different responses to it, was a toxic mix of quick tempers and even quicker tongues that manifested when the men came together. This strained relationship, especially Wilhelm’s perception of it, played a direct role in the realignment of European alliances and the subsequent Anglo-German naval buildup. The foreign policies of both Germany and Great Britain during this period were colored by the personal relationship between the two monarchs and their perceptions of one another. Two key events were the death of Queen Victoria and the Russo-Japanese War. Victoria’s death marked a turning point in British foreign policy, as Edward favored France, England’s traditional enemy. The Russo-Japanese War altered the naval situation in the North Sea, forcing Britain to take measures to reestablish the balance. Advisors/Committee Members: Baranowski, Shelley (Advisor).
