Otto von Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg, German statesman, 1893.Artist: W Holl

Otto von Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg, German statesman, 1893. 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. An engraving from James Taylor's The Age We Live In: A History of the Nineteenth Century, From the Peace of 1815 to the Present Time', William Mackenzie, (London, 1893).

Opening of the Great Exhibition by Queen Victoria, Hyde Park, London, 1 May 1851, (1899). Artist: Unknown

Opening of the Great Exhibition by Queen Victoria, Hyde Park, London, 1 May 1851, (1899). Conceived by Prince Albert, the Great Exhibition was intended to showcase the 'Works of the Industry of all Nations'. It was housed in the purpose-built Crystal Palace, the first large-scale prefabricated ferrovitreous (iron and glass) structure, designed by the landscape designer, Joseph Paxton. The prefabricated design made the construction, and later dismantling of the building, easier and quicker. The exhibition remained open until 15 October. An engraving from James Taylor's The Victorian Empire, William Mackenzie, (London, 1899).
