William Frankenstein was the son to Alphonse Frankenstein and younger brother to Victor Frankenstein. When Victor was in university, he created a monster and lost control over it. The monster then travelled to Geneva and murdered William. Victor's then-fiancee Elizabeth Lavenza sent a letter to Victor reporting the news. Alphonse's ward Justine Moritz was accused of William's murder, sentenced and executed, but the event prompted Victor to search for the Monster. Victor later had a chance to tell the whole story to a sailor, Robert Walton, who in turn would pass the story to his descendants.[1]
