Austrian Empire

, this geographic construction represented a ''little Germany (German question)'' solution. The model of diplomatic spheres of influence resulting from the Congress of Vienna in 1814–15 after the Napoleonic Wars endorsed Austrian (Austrian Empire) dominance in Central Europe. However, the negotiators at Vienna took no account of Prussia's growing strength within and among the German states, failing to foresee that Prussia would challenge Austria for leadership within the German (German people) states. This German dualism presented two solutions to the problem of unification: ''Kleindeutsche Lösung'', the small Germany solution (Germany without Austria), or ''Großdeutsche Lösung (German question)'', greater Germany solution (Germany with Austria). thumb 300px Map of the Holy Roman Empire in 1789. The map is dominated by the Habsburg Monarchy (File:HRR 1789 EN.png) (brown) and the Kingdom of Prussia (blue), besides a large number of small states (many of them too small to be shown on map) After Napoleon's defeat, the Congress of Vienna established a new European political-diplomatic system based on the balance of power (Balance of power in international relations). This system reorganized Europe into spheres of influence (sphere of influence) which, in some cases, suppressed the aspirations of the various nationalities, including the Germans and Italians. Sheehan, pp. 398–410; Hamish Scott, ''The Birth of a Great Power System, 1740–1815'', US, 2006, pp. 329–361. Generally, an enlarged Prussia and the 38 other states consolidated from the mediatized territories of 1803 were confederated within the Austrian Empire's sphere of influence. The Congress established a loose German Confederation (1815–1866), headed by Austria, with a "Federal Diet (diet (assembly))" (called the ''Bundestag'' or ''Bundesversammlung (Bundesversammlung (German Confederation))'', an assembly of appointed leaders) which met in the city of Frankfurt am Main. In recognition of the imperial position traditionally held by the Habsburgs, the emperors of Austria became the titular presidents of this parliament. Problematically, the built-in Austrian dominance failed to take into account Prussia's 18th century emergence in Imperial politics. Ever since the Prince-Elector of Brandenburg had created himself King in Prussia at the beginning of that century, their domains had steadily increased through war and inheritance. Prussia's consolidated strength became especially apparent during the War of the Austrian Succession and the Seven Years War under Frederick the Great. Sheehan, pp. 398–410. As Maria Theresa and Joseph (Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor) tried to restore Habsburg hegemony in the Holy Roman Empire, Frederick countered with the creation of the ''Fürstenbund'' (Union of Princes) in 1785. Austrian-Prussian dualism (German dualism) lay firmly rooted in old Imperial politics. Those balance of power manoeuvres were epitomised by the War of the Bavarian Succession, or "Potato War (Potato War#Change in warfare)" among common folk. Even after the end of the Holy Roman Empire, this competition influenced the growth and development of nationalist movements in the 19th century. Jean Berenger. ''A History of the Habsburg Empire 1700–1918.'' C. Simpson, Trans. New York: Longman, 1997, ISBN 0-582-09007-5. pp. 96–97. According to the Austrian (Austrian Empire) population census there were over 10,000 Krashovans in Banat. In the 1847 census over 10,000 people declared as Carasovans. In 1896 the Austro-Hungarian (Austria-Hungary) census around 7,500 Krashovans were listed. The same was stated by the authorities of the Kingdom of Romania in 1940. Their number dropped to 2,775 in 1992. ''Spaţiul istoric şi etnic românesc'', Vol.I, Editura Militară, Bucharest, 1992 An early reference to "Ljig" can be found in the 17th century records of Evlija Celebija, which describe "LIGmehri" (the Ljig River) rising from Kara Dag

Allied forces did likewise. Following the 1905 Japanese victory in the Russo-Japanese War, Du Bois became impressed by the growing strength of Imperial Japan (Empire of Japan).

), 339. The legislation was passed after two failed attempts to assassinate (Assassination) Kaiser Wilhelm I (Wilhelm I of Germany) by the radicals Max Hödel and Dr. Karl Nobiling; it was meant to curb the growing strength of the Social Democratic Party (Social Democratic Party of Germany) (SPD, named SAP at the time), which was blamed for influencing the assassins. Although the law did not ban the SPD directly, it aimed to cripple the organization through various means. The banning of any group or meeting of whose aims were to spread socialist (Socialism) principles, the outlawing of trade unions and the closing of 45 newspapers are examples of suppression. The party circumvented these measures by having its candidates run as ostensible independents, by relocating publications outside of Germany and by spreading Social Democratic views as verbatim publications of Reichstag speeches, which were privileged speech with regard to censorship. The laws' main proponent was Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, who feared the outbreak of a socialist revolution similar to the one that created the Paris Commune in 1871. Despite the government's attempts to weaken the SPD, the party continued to grow in popularity. A bill introduced by Bismarck in 1888 which would have allowed for the denaturalization (Naturalization#Denaturalization) of Social Democrats was rejected. After Bismarck's resignation in 1890, the Reichstag did not renew the legislation, allowing it to lapse. ::Molobo didn't quote the whole section. Wikipedia:Vandalism goes on saying "''Do not place dispute tags improperly, as in when there is no dispute, and the reason for placing the dispute tag is because a suggested edit has failed to meet consensus. Instead, follow WP:CON and accept that some edits will not meet consensus.''" I fail to see that just because a very small proportion somewhere in a unimportant place deserves a totally dispute tag on German Empire, only because Molobo noticed he was not about to "win" the edit war. There was no dispute on the talk page and the text he quickly posted was only to justify the tag. Sciurinæ (User:Sciurinæ) 17:56, 29 March 2006 (UTC) World War I In common with many Europeans, the people of Rethen expressed a great enthusiasm for World War I at the start of the conflict in 1914. In all, 78 citizens were drawn into the German Empire's army; 14 of them died during the war. In the winter of 1914 15, refugees from Russian occupied territories were quartered in Rethen. French prisoners of war were brought to Rethen to help in road construction and agricultural work. By the end of war, especially during the “Steckrübenwinter” (Rutabaga winter) in 1916 17, ordinary life became difficult for the people of Rethen as it did for their fellow countrymen throughout Germany. In spite of food rationing, high unemployment, and a generally poor economy, no revolution took place. In the last days of the war, a workers and soldiers council (Workers' council) arose, but after a short time it collapsed and was followed by a parish council (Civil parish#Parish councils). nickname allegiance Nazi Germany branch 23px border (Image:War Ensign of Germany 1903-1918.svg) Reichsheer (German Army (German Empire)) 23px (Image:Flag of Weimar Republic (war).svg) Reichswehr 23px (File:Flag Schutzstaffel.svg) Waffen-SS :'''George''': By Gum, this is interesting!
