08/12/1866

On July 22, 1866,  Prussia and Austria had agreed to an armistice, on Prussian terms.  Prussia's ally Italy continued its operations against Austria but without Prussian support was forced to accept a cease fire on this day at the Armistice of Cormons. The later Peace of Prague on August 23, 1866 confirmed the crushing Prussian victory over Austria while the Treaty of Vienna in October 1866 stripped the empire of  its Italian-speaking province of Venetia. (By John Osborne)
