Italian and German Unification: Crash Course European History #27

So, we haven’t talked much about Italy and Germany so far in Crash Course Euro, and that’s because prior to the mid-19th century, those two nation-states weren’t really a thing.

Today we’ll look at how Italy and Germany pulled it together in the second half of the 1800s.

You’ll learn about Guisseppe Garibaldi, Victor Emmanuelle, Otto von Bismarck, Wilhelm I, and a whole heck of a lot about the development of modern politics.

Note from Among the Fray: Now that we have finished World History, we will be watching Crash Course’s European History series. An episode – in chronological order of course – will be posted with the morning news everyday. Enjoy!
