Cuno Graf von Moltke


Cuno Graf von Moltke (13 December 1847, Neustrelitz - 19 March 1923, Breslau) was a German Lieutenant General, wing adjutant of Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany, composer and city commandant of Berlin.

Kuno von Moltke came from the Württemberg line of the old nobility Moltke in Mecklenburg. He was from 1896 to 1899 commander of the Leibkürassier Regiment Nr. 1 in Breslau, and appears to have written several military marches during this period. Later he was promoted to lieutenant general and was from 1906 to 1907 city commandant of Berlin.

Moltke belonged to the Liebenberger Tafelrunde, a circle that was immortalized in history because they exercised great influence on the German emperor. Moltke was a principal in the homosexual scandal known as the Harden-Eulenburg Affair(1907) that rocked the Kaiser's entourage. Moltke was fined and forced to leave the military service as a result of this scandal.
