more important for Prussia to “draw close to Austria”
an Austro-Prussian union “ordained by nature and their past relationship”
I can never get tired of this
The history is known to me, but I just pictured Bismarck secretly drawing PruAus fanart and having his secret yaoi stash accidentally found by a quietly horrified Germany and.
Oh hey we should be PruAus friends
Yeah, PruAus cooperation isn’t new… In fact, how they pretty much dominated the confederation just makes me have the
sweetangst PruAus parent raising kid Ludwig over time… Until Roderich went unstable.Ludwig might not be as horrified, hopefully.
Honestly, looking at this, around 1850s…
And how Bismarck made the penalty so lenient for the defeated Austrian with the sole purpose of Austria allying with Prussia in the future…. Thanks Bismarck. No words needed.
