The W-K stands for the initials of Wilhelm I., Kurfürst von Hessen who became the Prince-Elector of Hesse in 1803. In 1806 his electorate was annexed by the Kingdom of Westphalia, ruled by Jérôme Bonaparte, Napoleon's brother. William escaped to Denmark with his family and lived there in exile until the French were expelled from Germany. Following the defeat of the Napoleonic armies in the Battle of Leipzig, William was restored in 1813 and ruled until his death in 1821.
