The Rhine-Prussian War was a direct result of the Rhineland War, which occured about a decade before. The rivalry of the Confederation of the Rhine and the Kingdom of Prussia established since the First European War. Unlike the Rhineland War, Prussia fought this war alone, as Austria, post Hungarian Revolution was withering and shriveling up in power. But the will of the King Wilhelm I and his Chancellor Otto von Bismarck held the country steadfast towards it ultimate victory. The war marked the turning point of power in Germany, as Prussia then rose as the prominent Germanic state, surpassing the Confederation.
