Timeline of History

Political History

Joachim von Ribbentrop, future Nazi foreign minister, is born in Prussia. Ribbentrop becomes a member of the nobility (the "von") through marriage, and it was also his marriage which helps him become a successful businessman.

Most other Nazis hate him and he seems to compensate by trying to be more fanatical than any other Nazi. Perhaps it is fortunate that he ends up traveling so much.
