Philipp Eulenburg, Fürst zu

Eulenburg, Philipp, Fürst zu (fēˈlĭp fürst tsō oiˈlən-bŏrkh) [key], 1847–1921, German diplomat, friend and confidential adviser of Emperor William II. He served (1894–1902) as ambassador to Austria-Hungary, but it was his role as intermediary between the emperor and his government that made him important. In 1906 a scandal seriously damaged his reputation and indirectly weakened respect for the government. A famous raconteur and a dilettante composer, Eulenburg also left memoirs.
