Consul Count Spee

Post by stevebecker » 03 Aug 2020 23:11

Mates,

Can you help find who this man was?

He is recorded as just Count Spee (possibly Graf Spee)?

He is shown as German Consul General in Smyrna during the Great War?

When looking for him all I get is Admiral Max Graf Spee or the Battle ship?

Can you find this man?

Cheers

Steve,

Ludwig Graf von Spee.

Born 31 March 1870 in Luzern

A career diplomat, he was general consul in Constantinople from 15 August to 12 November 1914. He served at Smyrna and Constantinople intermittently from 19 October 1915 until 19 Jan 1917.
