Lieutenant General Kuno Augustus Friedrich Karl Detlev Graf von Moltke (1847–1923), adjutant to Kaiser Wilhelm II and military commander of Berlin, was a principal in the homosexual scandal known as the Harden-Eulenburg Affair (1907) that rocked the Kaiser's entourage. Moltke was forced to leave the military service.
