  1. GiGi
    Ludwig Freiherr (Baron) von Falkenhausen (13 September 1844 – 4 May 1936) was a German general. He was highly successful during the first half of World War I and was awarded the Pour le Mérite on 23 August 1915, with oak leaves following on 15 April 1916.
    Falkenhausen commanded the German Sixth Army at the Battle of Arras in April 1917. He failed to deploy correctly the newly-developed defence in depth to counter new British and Dominion tactics and was removed from field command by General Erich Ludendorff. Thereafter, he succeeded Moritz von Bissing and served as governor-general of Belgium during the German occupation, from May 1917 until November 1918.

    Falkenhausen was born in Guben and died in Görlitz
