    Over the next twelve years, Bismarck, Moltke and Roon transformed Prussia; Bismarck would later refer to this period as "the most significant of my life". The world saw Bismarck as a typical backwoods Prussian Junker, an image that he encouraged by wearing military uniforms. However, Wilhelm was ambivalent about appointing a person who demanded unfettered control over foreign affairs. The goal was to end the pope's control over the bishops in a given state, but the project went nowhere. The office of Minister President of Prussia was temporarily separated from that of Chancellor inwhen Albrecht von Roon was appointed to the former office.

    Prussian public opinion strongly favoured Augustenburg's claim, as Holstein and southern Schleswig were and still are mostly German-speaking. Bismarck was not yet a member of the Landtag, the lower house of the new Prussian legislature. His plan was to promote republicanism in France by isolating the clerical-monarchist regime of President MacMahon. The National Liberals refused to make this law permanent, while the Conservatives supported only the entirety of the bill, threatening to and eventually vetoing the entire bill in session because Bismarck would not agree to a modified bill.

    In a famous letter to Leopold von Gerlach, Bismarck wrote that it was foolish to play chess having first put 16 of the 64 squares out of bounds. Under her influence, Bismarck became a Pietist Lutheran, and later recorded that at Marie's deathbed from typhoid he prayed for the first time since his childhood. Bismarck distrusted democracy and ruled through a strong, well-trained bureaucracy with power in the hands of a traditional Junker elite that consisted of the landed nobility in eastern Prussia. Bismarck, however, once more was obliged to oppose the current of national feeling, which imperiously demanded that the German duchies should be rescued from a foreign yoke. Napoleon III was taken prisoner at Sedan and kept in Germany for a time in case Bismarck had need of him to head the French regime; he later died in exile in England in

Benedetti then made another proposal, submitting a draft treaty by which France was to support Prussia in adding the South German states to the new confederation, and Germany was to support France in the annexation of Luxemburg and Belgium.

However, Wilhelm was ambivalent about appointing a person who demanded unfettered control over foreign affairs.

Bismarck had only minor injuries. Although he never personally commanded troops in the field, he usually wore a general's uniform in public for the rest of his life, as seen in numerous paintings and photographs. Motley, who later became an eminent historian and diplomat while remaining close to Bismarck, wrote a novel inMorton's Hope, or the Memoirs of a Provincial, about life in a German university.

Bismarck insisted on a "soft peace" with no annexations and no victory parades, so as to be able to quickly restore friendly relations with Austria. By both the Liberal and Conservative spokesmen in Britain hailed him as the champion of peace in Europe. He remained well-informed due to Roon, with whom Bismarck formed a lasting friendship and political alliance.

He can be seen as a marginal contributor to Italian unification. Despite his lengthy stay abroad, Bismarck was not entirely detached from German domestic affairs.

His success in the treaty negotiations was enough that he received an appointment as ambassador to France ina post of great difficult and responsibility. Historians emphasize that he wanted no more territorial gains afterand vigorously worked to form cross-linking alliances that prevented any war in Europe from starting.

He achieved this incredible feat without commanding an army, and without the ability to give an order to the humblest common soldier, without control of a large party, without public support, indeed, in the face of almost universal hostility, without a majority in parliament, without control of his cabinet, and without a loyal following in the bureaucracy.
