Yamini Vyas Period 12 A look at Austria-Hungary, Germany,
Great Britain, and the Americas “Nationalism” is generally used to describe: 3. The actions that people of a nation take when seeking to achieve self-determination 2. The exalting of one nation above all others by greatly emphasizing the promotion of its culture and interests Leading Unification - Similar to Italy, Germany achieved national unity in the mid-1800s
- 1815: 39 German states formed a loose grouping called the German Confederation
- Though the Austrian Empire dominated the confederation, Prussia was ready to unify all the German states

- Prussia had many advantages that allowed it to forge a strong German state
1) Prussia had a mainly German population
2) Prussia's army was the most powerful in central Europe
- 1848: Rioters in Berlin forced a constitutional convention to write a liberal constitution for the kingdom Otto von Bismarck - 1861: Wilhelm I succeeded Frederick William to the throne
- He felt that his authority was threatened by the liberal parliament
- He was supported by the Junkers, who were strong, conservative members of Prussia's wealthy landowning class
- 1862: Wilhelm chose Otto von Bismarck as his prime minister
- Bismarck was really good at realpolitik, or "the politics of reality"
- Bismarck, with the king's approval, declared that he would rule without the consent of parliament and without a legal budget

- He told parliament during his first speech: “It is not by means of speeches and majority resolutions that the great issues of the day will be decided—that was the great mistake of 1848 and 1849—but by blood and iron.” War and Expansion - Prussia and Austria formed an alliance and went to war against Denmark to win two border provinces, Schleswig and Holstein
- With a quick victory, national pride increased among the Prussians Effects and Influence - Nationalism's influence carried throughout Europe and the Americas
- It shaped countries by both creating new ones and breaking up old ones
- Authoritarian rulers realized that since nationalism could unify large masses of people, they could use these nationalist feelings for their own purposes
- Nationalism is the basis of world politics today and has often caused conflicts and wars Culturally distinct groups form into a new state by accepting a single culture 1) Unification: Mergers of politically divide by culturally similar lands 2) Separation: Culturally distinct group resists being added to a state or tries to break away 3) State-building: Bismarck Unites Germany Prussia Leads German Unification Bismarck Takes Control Prussia Expands Seven Weeks' War War and Expansion The Franco-Prussian War - A few southern German states still remained independent of Prussian Control
- Bismarck believed that if the south was threatened from the outside, he could win their support
- To instigate a war with France, Bismarck acted as if the Prussian king had been insulted by the French ambassador
- July 19, 1870: The French, angered by the deceit, declared war on Prussia
- September 1870: Prussian army surrounded the French force at Sedan and took about 80,000 prisoners
- Hunger ultimately forced the French to surrender to the siege

- Winning the war caused nationalism to take place in southern Germany, allowing the people to accept Prussian control
- January 18, 1871: at Versailles, King Wilhelm I was crowned kaiser; Germans called their empire the Second Reich Ethnic Nationalism 1814 - 1848 Problems: • Germans: • Hungarians: • Croatians: believed they were in charge wanted Hungarians traditions to prevail outraged by the thinking of both the Germans and Hungarians Compromise Ausgleich - 1867: Franz Joseph I and a Hungarian delegation signed a compromise known as "Ausgleich"
- It divided Austria's empire into two part, effectively creating Austria-Hungary
- Austria-Hungary was a multi-national empire Dual Monarchy - Before, the empire had been controlled by the Germans that inhabited Austria
- After defeat in the Seven Weeks War, the Germans were forced to share power with the Hungarians and they were placed on an equal footing with them
- This was called "Dual Monarchy"; The Emperor of Austria was also the King of Hungary
- From 1848 - 1916, the emperor was Franz Joseph I from the Hapsburg family, the traditional rulers of Austria
- He was the uncle of Franz Ferdinand, the assassinated Archduke of Austria-Hungary
- The assassination was the spark of WWI

- The single most important issue facing the empire was nationalism
- Different national groups demanded political and cultural equality The End The Austrian Half - Power of the parliament was restricted
- Emperor had control over foreign affairs
- Parliament was elected on a limited franchise
- The Austrians made attempts to give their subject nationalities a share in the government of their half of the empire Powers - The peoples controlled by the Austrians consisted of:
- However, when the government introduced reforms to improve minority language or custom rights, it was opposed by the Germans
- Reform became difficult
- Nationalist rivalry between the Czechs and the Germans became intense Diversity The Hungarian Half - Hungarians had political power
- Different nationalities in Hungary consisted of:
- The different groups of people were forced to endure a policy of Hungarization
- For example, the Hungarian language was made mandatory in government, education, and law
- This created much tension between different nationalities National Identities Blood and Iron - Bismarck, however, purposely created border conflicts with Austria over Schleswig and Holstein, provoking Austria to declare war on Prussia in 1866
- This was known as the Seven Weeks' War
- The Prussians won a huge and devastating victory due to their superior training and equipment, humiliating Austria
- Prussia took control of northern Germany and, for the first time, the eastern and western parts of the Prussian kingdom were joined
- 1867: the remaining states of the north joined the North German Confederation The Second Reich A Shift in Power The Great Powers - The 1815 Congress of Vienna had established 5 Great Powers in Europe
- Then, the Great Powers had been almost equal in strength
- When Prussia joined with other states to form Germany, they grew stronger than the others
- By 1871, both Britain and Germany were the most powerful, militarily and economically Latin american countries were divided into 6 social classes based on “purity”: Background Peninsulares Born in Spain
- Highest amount of authority
-Control and Power Creoles -Spaniards born in Latin America
- Both Parents are Peninsulares
