19 th century: after congress of Vienna, wake of revolution -- High politics and development of nationalism and its particular configuration in this period. Until 1871, Germany is not unified – still dealing with the German confederation and Austria the main German state Winners: Prussia becomes a major power, HRE disbanded and consolidation of the German confederation; Russia dominance in Poland; Sardinian expansion; Austrian overstretch?
