including the strengthening of the Prussian economy due to economic reforms and the Zollverein between 1815 and 1848, and the continued growth after this period with army and financial reforms. As well as the three wars against Denmark (1864), Austria (1866) and France (1870-71). The founding reasons behind why German was unified under Prussia and not under Austria can be found in the years leading up to 1818, where the 39 states of the Confederation all managed their own economies. The states used customs duties as a way to protect their own economy from the surrounding states, restricting the development of commercial trading between states. Finally in 1818, Prussia abandoned its domestic tariff system and due to the success as a result of the abandonment other German states followed the example of Prussia.
Later in the year, Anatolian surrendered the city to the Byzantines, not the crusaders. They then met once again and together defeated the Turkish army, scoring a great victory and boosting their ego. Afterwards, the crusaders went and captured the city of Antioch, and then moved on to their goal, Jerusalem. For the next generation or so, the crusaders kept control over the Holy Land and invite their people to come inhabit the city. The crusaders used the strategy of isolating and cutting off supplies that could lead to strengthening to the Muslims and Egyptians.
Nationalism was needed to unify Germany, but Metternich, the Austrian Chancellor of State, suppressed nationalism to prevent the breakup of the Austrian empire. With the downfall of Metternich, Austria was weakened and thus made it easier for Prussia to defeat Austria and gain complete control over the unification process, making a unified Germany under Prussian rule possible. Bismarck formed alliances, obtained land, and used realpolitik which were more policies/actions to support Prussia. However, to a lesser degree, he used the Zollverein, or German Customs Union to exclude Austria from Germany. He, therefore, would be considered more of a Prussian nationalist.
This article also addresses the factors beyond the strength of Bismarck's Realpolitik that led to unification. The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation had been informally dissolved in 1806 with the abdication of the Emperor, Francis.  Despite the legal, administrative, and political disruption caused by the dissolution of the Empire, the people of the German-speaking areas of the old Empire had a common linguistic, cultural and legal tradition that was further enhanced by their shared experience in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. The spheres of influence model created after the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 supposedly established Austrian dominance in Central Europe. Prussia's rising competence, embodied in the Realpolitik of "Iron Chancellor" Bismarck, challenged the Austrian authority for real leadership within the German states.
The powerful European Empires, such as Russia, began seeing that serfdom was the way to keep their empire stronger and to keep competition to see which empire was better. Prior to the arrival of serfdom in Russia, Russian Peasants lived a ordinary life, but when the destruction from the Tartars in the 13th Century occurred, many Russian Peasants became homeless and began living in lands owned by wealthy Russians. By the end of the 16th century, half of the Russian Peasant population became under control by the landowner, but most were owned by Tsars and religious foundations. The reason for this was to reestablished the Russian institution, which is the feudal system. Russian Serfdom became quite different from the other serfdom's done in Europe and other places.
From the 1450s to the 1750s, powerful empires including the Spanish maritime empire and the Russian empire rose. With these powerful empires also rose systems of forced labor. The Spanish empire grew to include the Americas, and the Russian Empire took control of territory lost to the Mongols prior to the 1750s. Both the Spanish settlers in the New World and the Russian Nobility needed labor for commercial purposes, but the encomienda system gave the settlers the right to demand labor from natives, whereas Russian serfdom were comprised of peasants who fell into debt and were forced to become laborers to the large estates owned by nobles to repay their debt. The intentions of both the encomienda system and system of Russian serfdom were the same, however, they differed in the foundation and functionality.
The Serbian Patriarchate was restored in 1557 by the Turkish sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Macarios, brother of the famous Mehmed Pasha Sokolovic was elected Patriarch in Pec. The restoration of the Patriarchate was of great importance for the Serbs because it helped the spiritual unification of all Serbs in the Turkish Empire. After consequent Serbian uprisals against the Turkish occupators in which the Church had a leading role, the Turks abolished the Patriarchate
The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, which had included more than 300 independent states, was effectively dissolved when Emperor Francis II abdicated (6 August 1806) during the War of the Third Coalition. Despite the legal, administrative, and political disruption associated with the end of the Empire, the people of the German-speaking areas of the old Empire had a common linguistic, cultural and legal tradition further enhanced by their shared experience in the French Revolutionary Wars and Napoleonic Wars. European liberalism offered an intellectual basis for unification by challenging dynastic and absolutist models of social and political organization; its German manifestation emphasized the importance of tradition, education, and linguistic unity of peoples in a geographic region. Economically, the creation of the Prussian Zollverein (customs union) in 1818, and its subsequent expansion to include other states of the German Confederation, reduced competition between and within states. Emerging modes of transportation facilitated business and recreational travel, leading to contact and sometimes
Dracula learned all the skills of war and peace that were deemed necessary for a Christian knight. The political situation in Wallachia remained unstable after Vlad Dracula seized the throne in 1436. The power of the Turks was growing rapidly as one by one the small states of the Balkans surrendered to the Ottoman onslaught. At the same time the power of Hungary was reaching its zenith and would peak during the time of John Hunyadi, the White Knight of Hungary, and his son King Matthius Corvinus. Any prince of Wallachia had to balance his policies precariously between these two powerful neighbors.
