After he became successful in the civil service, his uncle encouraged him to change his name and continue the family name, Hiedler. This came to be misspelled as Hitler. (In the local dialect both spellings would have given the same pronunciation).

From Quiz Adolf Hitler

It was the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. Hitler arrived in Vienna in 1907, hoping to become an architect. He was astonished at not being accepted, and soon applied again, only to be rejected again.

17. Why was Hitler hospitalised during WWI?

From Quiz Hitler - The Making of a Dictator

Answer: He had been gassed

In 1914 he was promoted to the rank of lance-corporal. Hitler is quoted as saying war came to him "like a redemption from the vexatious experience of my youth ... In a transport of enthusiasm, I sank down on my knees and thanked Heaven from an overflowing heart". During the Battle of the Somme in October 1916 Hitler received a wound in his left thigh when a shell exploded at the entrance to the dispatch runners' dugout. He begged not to be evacuated, but was sent for almost two months to the Red Cross hospital at Beelitz in Brandenburg.

From Quiz Even Hitler Had a Mother

Answer: Corporal

Although he had never been willing to do a regular job, Hitler served with distinction during the war. Along with being promoted to corporal, he was decorated with both the Iron Cross Second Class and First Class. Ironically, the captain who recommended him for the awards was Jewish. To satisfy the nit-picky: There was no such rank as Senior Corporal in the German Army during World War I.
