Count Otto von Bismarck, Prusso-German statesman, 1870. Artist: Unknown

Count Otto von Bismarck, Prusso-German statesman, 1870. Otto Edward Leopold, Count von Bismarck (1815-1898) was Chancellor of Prussia and architect of modern Germany. His ambition was to unify the various independent German states into a single nation under Prussian leadership. The catalyst to bringing this about was the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, when the other German states fought alongside the Prussians. France was defeated, and in 1871, the German Empire was established, with Bismarck as Chancellor. Cartoon from Vanity Fair, London 1870.

Map of the Battle of Sedan, 1 September 1870, (c1872). Map: 'Drawn under the Superintendance of Captain Hozier', showing the enemy positions. The Battle of Sedan was a national humiliation for the French, as their army was decisively defeated by the Prussians commanded by Moltke, and the Emperor Napoleon III captured. The defeat led to the fall of the French Second Empire and the occupation of Paris by the Germans and, in 1871, the creation of the German Empire.
