You may be looking for August Hitler.

Adolf Hitler, Jr. was the son of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun. He was conceived shortly before his father's suicide in the Führerbunker on 30 April 1945.

His mother faked her death and smuggled herself out of Berlin while pregnant with Martin Bormann's help. He was raised to revere his father's memory as the new leader of the Fourth Reich. He prepared rituals with what he believed was a scrying glass while he gathered his forces in an Antarctica naval base. His existence was uncovered by the Sixth Doctor, Claire Aldwych and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart in 2001, the Doctor dismissing him as a pathetic supporter of a barren philosophy that he knew would never have the strength to survive in the modern world. Hitler Jr. was killed when he forced the Doctor to take him back in time to meet his father, who shot him in the head, thinking him a madman thanks to the Doctor's previously-established identity of Major-General Johann Schmidt.

Other worlds[]

In Germany I, one of many Known Worlds where Nazi Germany won World War II, August Hitler was born to Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun on 30 April 1945. He later became Führer of the Greater German Reich before escaping (PROSE: Warlords of Utopia) to Adolf Hitler, Jr's Earth, (PROSE: The Shadow in the Glass) "True Earth", where he lived in exile in the South American jungle until being killed by Marcus Americanius Scriptor.

Behind the scenes[]

  • The Shadow in the Glass reveals Hitler Jr. as the doppelganger of Hitler whose body was found in the Reichschancellery water tower. However, authors Stephen Cole and Justin Richards clarify in the historical note that the real-life doppelganger was likely Gustav Weler.
