German nationalism.
The French Revolution
The Industrial Revolution German Unification In the beginning of the eighteenth century, central Europe was separated into roughly 300 separate independent states, loosely bound together by the Holy Roman Empire.
By the mid-eighteenth century, Europe’s two strongest and larges states, Prussia (ruled by the Hohenzollerns) and Austria (ruled by the Habsburgs) , developed a rivalry towards each other. Austria was traditionally the more dominate state and as a result, the Habsburg king was elected the Holy Roman Emperor.
Prussia became a more powerful state, strengthened by newly acquired lands and an enlarged military, and as such began to challenge Austria’s power.
Napoleon's armies occupied, moved through, or were allied with German states in the early 19th century. When the Holy Roman Empire was dissolved in 1806, the Council of Vienna decided to consolidate the German States into a German Confederation.
This was a confederation of 39 states (including Prussia and Austria)
Each member pledged to defend any other member who fell under foreign attack.
It fell short of any national or economic unity.
The first effort to form economic unity among the members of the German confederation came with the Zollverein customs union.
Emigration by the Germans to the United States increased during the Industrial Revolution.
People sought religious, political, and personal freedom
The United States negotiated and signed treaties, conventions and agreements to regulate trade, commerce, navigation, naturalization, and inheritence rights with the smaller German state. Kleinedeutsche versus Grossdeutsche Kleinedeutsche:
"Small Germany"
The unified German state should exclude Austria.
"Large Germany"
The unified German state should include Austria. Wars of Unification 1) 1862:

2) 1866:

final act of German unification When news of the 1848 revolution in France spread to Germany, many people felt it was time for a unified Germany. Riots that broke out in rural areas in the weeks that followed spread to urban areas. Revolutionaries wanted freedom of press, a national militia, a German parliament, and trial by jury, as well as the abolition of powerful aristocrats, constitutions for several German states, a fair system of taxes, and freedom of religion. German National Assembly: May 18, 1848 at Frankfurt am Main This was the first assembly to be elected freely by the German people. Despite the election of an imperial vice regent (Reichsverweser), the government was flawed from the beginning because of its lack of a strong executive power. Otto Von Bismark Prince of Bismark
He attempted to start a war with France in order to gain Germany a sense of nationalism. They would unite to fight the French He became the first chancellor of the German empire and forced France to pay
$1 billion and give up previously German land. Young Italy: 1831 Italian nationalist movement

Mazzini created a small group of people called Young Italy that was to spread ideas of unification, revolutions, and republicanism.

Treaty of Frankfurt gave Germany a large sense of pride which lasted until the 20th century. This empire was ruled by Prussian bloodline.
