Product Description
This is a bundle of 3 highly animated, power point presentation on German & Italian Unification – Austria, Prussia and the Enlightened Despots. The total number of slides in the presentations is 51. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

Power point #1 is entitled, German & Italian Unification - Austria, Prussia and the Enlightened Despots and contains 20 slides and covers the following:

Germany, from the beginning of the 1700s was dominated by 2 families, the Hapsburgs and the Hohenzollerns. They ruled Austria and Prussia respectively. Throughout the 1700s they vied with each other to control northern and eastern Europe. The Hapsburgs began the period as emperors of the Holy Roman Empire. The Hohenzollerns began as one of the 7 electors of that Emperor (Elector of Brandenburg).

The two leading states in Germany took divergent paths to power. The Austrian Hapsburgs faced outward, snapping up territories here and there around Europe. In spite of internal reforms they could never completely consolidate their gains. In Prussia, however, the growth was Germanic for the most part. The Brandenburg-Prussian Hohenzollerns unified their territories and created an efficient kingdom where the best and brightest were recruited into the military and government.

The Hapsburgs would long have the upper hand, but eventually the Hohenzollerns would provide the nucleus for a state that would one day, briefly, conquer nearly all of Europe.

Power point #2 is entitled, German & Italian Unification - Key Figures - Otto von Bismarck and contains 17 slides and covers the following:

Germany became a modern, unified nation under the leadership of the “Iron Chancellor” Otto von Bismarck, who between 1862 and 1890 effectively ruled first Prussia and then all of Germany. He initiated decisive wars with Denmark, Austria and France to unite 39 independent German states under Prussian leadership. He manipulated European rivalries to make Germany a world power, but in doing so laid the groundwork for both World Wars.

in addition to his military prowess, Bismarck introduced progressive reforms, by establishing the first welfare state. He established national healthcare in 1883, accident insurance in 1884, and old age pensions in 1889.

Respected and honored by the time of his death eight years later, Bismarck quickly became a quasi-mythic figure invoked by political leaders calling for strong German leadership, or for war.

Power point #3 is entitled, German & Italian Unification - Bismarck & The Unification of Germany and contains 14 slides and covers the following:

By the 1850s Germany was a loose jumble of 39 states led by Austria and Prussia. Jointly, they were known as the German confederation, but for all practical purposes they were not united. The Hohenzollern Kings of Prussia decided to go about changing this situation in their own favor. Their objective was to unify Germany under their own rule and to completely exclude Austria.

William I, King of Prussia chose a minister who could put his program into effect. He chose a fiery Junker named Otto von Bismarck. He began by providing the funds Prussia needed to modernize its army by collecting taxes which parliament had not approved.

When parliament called for an explanation he replied that the problems of Germany would not be settled by parliamentary debate by "Blood and Iron,” earning him the nickname, the "Iron Chancellor”. By the end of the World War I, nothing would be left of the Austrian empire but a tiny German state that would be gobbled up by Hitler's Germany in the Anschluss.
