Title The 70 million Empire
Description During the German revolution of 1848/ 1849, the German patriots offered 3 solutions for the German question:
1. The small German solution: Prussia unites the German states without Austria
2. The great German solution: Austria dismisses its eastern regions and unites with the other German states.

And: 3. All German states, Austria, and the territories ruled by Austria united to a huge Empire, the Empire of 70 million residents (in the mid of the 19th century). Austria will be the ruling power instead of Prussia, after reading some information, no they would not call it Great Austria, they would still call it German Empire.
Text on the right: German Empire Anno 1850 These are the noble imperial lands, united under the royal leadership of Kaiser Franz Joseph * After long struggle for the unity of the German lands and the Austrian possessions, the German people voted in St. Pauls Cathedral, Frankfurt, 26th August, 1849 the Emperor of Austria, Franz Joseph I at the same location, from now on to the Emperor of all German lands. * On the 24th March, 1850 the final border were created in peace with the approval of the neighbour countries, rightfully. * The eternal rightful imperial capital is from now on the proud Vienna, located at the Danube river.
