What was the condition of Germany before 1871?

From 1815-1866 Germany consisted of 39 states which for most purposes were sovereign. (Before about 1794 it had just over 360 states!) Many of the states were poor and some were badly run. Nearly all were undemocratic till the late 1850s, and even in those states which nominally had parliaments the governments sometimes just did what they wanted and treated the constitution with utter contempt. Many of the German states kept their citizens under surveillance and censored the press. 'Insulting the monarchy' could - and did - land people in jail. Some parts of the German lands began to industrialize, initially on a modest scale, from about 1825 onwards (Kingdom of Saxony, the Ruhr and parts of the Nothern Rhineland) and from 1840 onwards also Upper Silesia. From 1850-1873 there was a prolonged boom. and living standards rose, especially in the industrial and adjacent areas and the big cities. There was a significant gap in living standards between these regions and agricultural areas far away from industry. Some parts of the country far from industry were still poor even c. 1870. However, many of the German-speaking countries were among the first to make education compulsory and the school system in Prussia was envied and copied abroad. Its universities, with their emphasis on research were held in very high regard, too. From 1862 onwards Prussia took the leading role in uniting Germany. One of the most important steps was the expulsion of Austria from Germany by war in 1866. (Until then Austria had been the official 'tog dog' in Germany ...) In the war of 1866 Prussia annexed a number of states such a Hanover and Electoral Hesse that had backed Austria. In 1867 Prussia established the North German Confederation, and during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871 the South German states also joined to create the German Empire - which was firmly under Prussian leadership. By 1880 at the latest Germany was acknowledged as the leading military and industrial power in Continental Europe. Joncey

Translations
Name Origins
Iran
Prussia

What is the source of the name Iran?

The term Iran (ایران) in modern Persian derives from the Proto-Iranian term Aryānām first attested in Zoroastrianism's Avesta tradition. As in Zoroaster's lifetime, differing dates for Avestan have been proposed; scholarly consensus floats around 1000 BCE (roughly contemporary to the Brahmana period of Vedic Sanskrit). Ariya- and Airiia- are also attested as an ethnic designator in Achaemenid inscriptions. The term Ērān from Middle Persian Ērān, Pahlavi ʼyrʼn, is found at the inscription that accompanies the investiture relief of Ardashir I at Naqsh-e Rustam. In this inscription, the king's appellation in Middle Persian contains the term ērān, while in the Parthian language inscription that accompanies it, Iran is mentioned as aryān. In Ardashir's time ērān retained this meaning, denoting the peoplerather than the state. The former (and ancient) name of Iran was Persia.

Why did Prussia win the Seven Weeks' War?

In numbers and equipment the two sides initially appeared to be fairly evenly matched. In 1857 Helmuth von Moltke the Elder (1800-1891) had been appointed Chief of the Prussian General Staff (Grosser Generalstab). He transformed this previously sleepy outfit into a powerhouse of detailed highly military planning such as no other European power possessed. Detailed study of the Austrian rail network made it clear to the Prussians which routes the Austrians were likely to use and where delays and bottle-necks would occur. This information was very accurate and gave the Prussians an enormous advantage, which they used very effectively to seize Austria's vital regions.

Where was Papendorf Prussia located?

PapendorfI have found two places in North Germany called Papendorf. One is near Warnow, the other near Pasewalk. Both are in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommen (MVP). The second is very close to the border with the state of Brandenburg, which was the heartland of Prussia.

There may be other places in Germany called Papendorf, including some in territory transferred to Poland and the Soviet Union in 1945.

PS. I see that Pasewalk was in Prussia from 1720-1947, when Prussia was dissolved. It was first annexed by Brandenburg in 1676.

Another alternative that should be checked out, or at least given some consideration, is created by adding a second P to create Pappendorf in the current state if Sachen. You can locate it by drawing a line between Leipzig and Dresden, and a second line due South of Berlin. The intersection is Pappendorf.

What should a 12 gauge hammerless Charles Daly Excelsior Steel Witten serial number 1633 made in Prussia be insured for?

The Charles Daly guns were offered in several grades which differed primarily in quality of wood and coverage of engraving. Of course, condition is most important. Value could be as low as $400 and as much as $7500-$8000. You really need a hands-on evaluation, or at least send us good clear digital photos of the entire gun. sales@countrygunsmith.net
