Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898) was Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince von Bismarck, Count von Bismarck-Schönhausen, Duke von Lauenburg.

Bismarck was a Prussian statesman who in 1871 founded the German Empire and served as its first chancellor for 19 years.

Through German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck's (1815-1898) efforts, Germany was transformed from a loose collection of small states into the German Empire, the strongest industrialized nation in continental Europe. A unified Germany permanently changed the European balance of power. Though Bismarck dominated German and European politics for nearly 30 years, his career was a series of paradoxes. An ultraconservative, he initiated social and welfare reform. A master politician, he despised parliaments and parties. A Prussian patriot, he created a German empire.
