GrowthDoes urban poverty. The only exception was Sardinian Kingdom (Piedmont), where preserved constitutional monarchy and liberallegislation. This achappened here due to higher activity of the headGovernment Camilo Bens Cavour (1810-1861).

For this Sardinian Kingdom (Piedmont)participated in the KRoman war against Russiaon the side of England, France and Turkey.

Paris Peace Congress in 1856 Cavourused for publicizing its program solve the Italian question.Practical results it did not, however, contributed to the perception of EuropeanPiedmont politicians as an exponent of Italian interests.

Being an ambitious person, ithas made considerable progress in economy management Physically strong, withloud voice, Bismarck contemptuously treated human weaknesses.

During the 1848 Revolution he ozbroyivshytheir peasants came у Berlinsuppression of the uprising. He noticed, and in 1851 he - back to stateservice. Bismarck was the representative Prussiathe Union Parliament. In 1859-1862 pp. - Ambassador to Russia and France.

Reform of the army gave the opportunity to resort to decisive action that time nahodyvsyapretext for war against of Denmark.

After the death of the Danish King Frederick VII (1863) on the throne of his dependent femaleChristiane IX. He sought to inherit all Danish possession. But in German duchies of Schleswig and Holstein, which belongedOf Denmark, is supposed to follow the female line. This Bismarck decidedskorys- tatysya as a pretext for the war resolution. Disregarding the interests other German states, offered BismarckAustrian Christiane force andX give up these possessions. In1864 AustriaPrussian army defeated of Denmark,which relinquished Schleswig for the benefit of Prussia andHolstein in favor of Austria.

Bringing this war to Austriaenabled Prussia odds its other membersGerman Confederation, which she chaired.
