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.

Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst, English suffragette, early 20th century. Artist: Unknown

Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst, English suffragette, early 20th century. Born in Manchester from a Radical political background, Emmeline Goulden (1857-1928) married Dr Richard Pankhurst, the 'Red Doctor', a Radical, feminist barrister. Their three daughters were all involved in the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), formed to campaign for votes for women. Emmeline was a charismatic and eloquent speaker and was 'immensely popular' with the membership. By 1913 she had served three prison sentences: two in 1908 for leading a deputation to Parliament, and for inciting the public to 'rush' the House of Commons; and in the wake of the window smashing of March 1912, she was sentenced to nine months in prison for conspiracy to commit damage. Emmeline Pankhurst's goal, the right for all women to vote, was finally realised in 1928.

William of Orange landing with his army at Torbay, Devon, 5 November 1688. A protestant, William of Orange (1650-1702) was invited by a conspiracy of English notables to depose the Catholic James II and assume the throne in his stead. The invasion, which was virtually bloodless, was successful and became known as the 'Glorious Revolution'. James fled to France and the Prince of Orange was crowned William III of Great Britain and Ireland on 11 April 1689. He co-ruled with his wife Mary II from 1689, continuing as sole ruler after her death in 1694.
