Unification A. The State: The most important of the German states was Prussia. B. The Man: Otto von Bismarck 1. His goal was to unify all of the German states into one super-power. C. The Method: War

1. Danish War 1864 2. Austro-Prussian War 1866 3. Franco-Prussian War 1871 Factors Against Unification A.Large number of states, 39 1. German Confederation of 39 states created by the Congress of Vienna in 1815

(Otto von Bismarck) What can you guess about his personality and his leadership by looking at this picture?

The Notorious O.V.B. (Otto von Bismarck) The Prime Minister of Prussia in the late 1800s. Practiced realpolitik Politics of reality Belief in practical goals instead of theory or idealism Not concerned about morals or ethics Doing whatever you think is necessary to achieve your goals

Believed Prussia destined to lead German people to unification Method to gain unification: Blood and Iron Blood and Iron The great questions of our time will not be solved with speeches and

majority votes but with iron and blood. Blood and Iron Meaning Blood = Soldiers, Iron = Swords We are not going to talk. We are going to fight for what we want. Speeches are not important. Action is important.

Fight!!! War!!! Blood and Iron Bismarck builds up the Prussian army Bismarck led Prussia into three wars 1. Danish War, 1864 2. Austro-Prussian War, 1866

3. Franco-Prussian War, 1871 Each war increased Prussias power and paved the way for German unity Words of Wisdom from Otto von Bismarck Laws are like sausages. It is better not to see them

being made. People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war, or before an election. When you want to fool the world, tell the truth. The main thing is to make history, not to write it. Words of Wisdom (cont.) Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns

from the mistakes of others. Politics is not an exact science. Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied. Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war. Otto von Bismarck Rap German Unification The peace treaty following the Franco-Prussian War established a new unified German empire. Wilhelm I declared Kaiser (Emperor) Bismarck appointed to First Chancellor (Chief Minister)
