Character description

Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative Prussian statesman who dominated German and European affairs from the 1860s until 1890.

In the 1860s he engineered a series of wars that unified the German states, significantly and deliberately excluding Austria, into a powerful German Empire under Prussian leadership.

With that accomplished by 1871 he skillfully used balance of power diplomacy to preserve German hegemony in a Europe which, despite many disputes and war scares, remained at peace.
