Germany, 1857, zoomable map
08/30/1866

On July 22, 1866,  Prussia and Austria had agreed to an armistice, on Prussian terms.  The two main belligerents then negotiated the Peace of Prague which was signed in that city on this day.  The treaty was surprisingly lenient  to the heavily defeated Austria but it was now clear that the leadership of the German-speaking peoples of Europe was now firmly in the hands of Prussia. (By John Osborne)
