Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince of Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg, known as Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative German statesman who masterminded the unification of Germany in 1871 and served as its first chancellor until 1890, in which capacity he dominated European affairs for two decades

The Unification of Germany into the German Empire, a Prussia-dominated state with federal features,[1] was officially proclaimed on 18 January 1871 in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles in France. The new state replaced the German Confederation, a decentralized association of the German duchies and states, and the preceding Holy Roman Empire which had become highly decentralized in its final centuries. On paper, the new realm continued the federalism and sovereignty of its member states, but in practice it applied Prussian centralization to all of the entities in the empire. Princes of the German states, excluding Austria-Hungary and its House of Habsburg-Lorraine (the dynasty that formerly ruled over the German princes during the German Confederation and Holy Roman Empire), gathered at the ceremony to proclaim William I of Prussia and the House of Hohenzollern as German Emperor, following the French capitulation in the Franco-Prussian War.
