Origin[edit | edit source]

Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince of Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg (April 1, 1815-July 30, 1898), known as Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative Prussian statesman who dominated German and European affairs from the 1860s until 1890. In the 1860s he engineered a series of wars that unified the German states (excluding Austria and Luxembourg) into a powerful German Empire under Prussian leadership. With that accomplished by 1871 he skillfully used balance of power diplomacy to preserve German hegemony in a Europe which, despite many disputes and war scares, remained at peace. For historian Eric Hobsbawm, it was Bismarck, who "remained undisputed world champion at the game of multilateral diplomatic chess for almost twenty years after 1871, [and] devoted himself exclusively, and successfully, to maintaining peace between the powers."

Effect[edit | edit source]

These angel figurines were given to Otto von Bismarck by Pope Pius IX as a symbol of nonviolence, but Bismarck later had the figurines destoried, but they were saved by a Warehouse 12 Agent. Separating the angels causes great disturbances in geo-political relations between Christian nations.
