The well known story of the gift of Mount Kilimanjaro by Queen Victoria to the Kaiser a few years later (rumoured to be because he had no high snow-clad peak in his empire) is perhaps indicative of the rather flippant attitude of the then imperial rulers and their governments towards the frontier lines of their overseas possessions.
