August Graf zu Eulenburg served as Kaiser Wilhelm II's Minister of the Royal House (Minister des königlichen Hauses) from 1907 through 1918. He initially served as a Prussian officer, attaining the rank of Leutnant in 1858 at the age of 20. He functioned as a military attaché for the East Asian Expedition from 1860 to 1862, and upon his return to Berlin, became the personal adjutant to the Crown Prince - future Kaiser Friedrich III. He was then appointed as Hofmarschall in 1868, and was thus in charge of the administrative affairs of the princely court.

Graf zu Eulenburg served as Oberhof- und Hausmarschall from 1890 to 1914, when he was replaced by Hugo von Reischach. In 1907, he then stepped in for General Wilhelm von Wedel as the Kaiser's Minister of the Royal House, a posting he kept until War's end in 1918. Although he had retired from the military active duty in 1889 at the rank of Oberst, he continued with military promotions:  Generalmajor - 1891, Generalleutnant - 1895, and General der Infanterie à la suite - 1904. Following the German Revolution of 1918-19, he served until his death in 1921 as the chief representative (Generalbevollmächtigter) of the House of Hohenzollern. Graf zu Eulenburg was married to Hedda von Witzleben and was the brother of Prussian Minister President Botho Graf zu Eulenburg.
