Storyboard Text

  • Encouraging the Austrians
  • Join us, Austria, in the war with Denmark. If we win we will take Schleswig and you can take Holstein. If we do this right, this will be a quick war.
  • Peace Settlement
  • For this peace settlement, I declare Prussia with the land of Holstein and for you, Austria, to not interfere in affairs with other German states.
  • Manipulating the note
  • Wait until the people hear about this.
  • ______________ ______________ ______________
  • From the French Ambassador
  • Setting in 1864, Austria. Otto Von Bismarck being a Prussian politician and one of the main individuals in the German Unification, encourages the Austrians to join Prussia in war for land against Denmark. The Austrians agree and the war was fast ending in a victory for Prussia and Austria. Prussia gains Schleswig while Austria gets Holstein.
  • France declares war on Prussia
  • I declare war, Prussia!
  • Setting in 1866, after the provoked war with Austria (the Austro-Prussian War), Prussia defeated the Austrian Army. The end result was a shift in power among the German states away from Austrian and towards Prussian. The peace settlement transferred Holstein to Prussia and forced Austria to not interfere in affairs with other German states.
  • Crowning of the German Emperor
  • Here is your crown, German emperor.
  • Setting in 1870, Prussia. Otto Van Bismarck manipulates a note from the French ambassador, saying the ambassador insulted the Prussian king. When leaked to the public, the french were furious and declared war on Prussia. The German Confederation had dissolved and the North German Confederation had formed. Prussia now controlled all German states north of the Main River just like Bismarck hoped.
  • Setting in July 30th, 1870, France. France declared war on Prussia like Otto Van Bismarck had hoped. He wanted to provoke a French attack in order to draw the southern German states into an alliance with Prussia. The war ended in France losing the Franco-Prussian War.
  • Just as I had hoped.
  • Setting in January 21, 1871, Palace of the Versailles. Prussia declared the German Empire and Prussian King Wilhelm took the crown as the German Emperor. The fact that King Wilhelm was crowned at this location insulted the French.
