Otto Eduard Leopold von Bismarck (1815-1898) was a Prussian German statesman and aristocrat of the 19th century. As Ministerpräsident of Prussia from 1862-1890, he oversaw the unification of Germany. In 1867 he became Chancellor of the North German Confederation. When the German Empire was formed in 1871, he served as its first Chancellor until 1890 and practiced Realpolitik, which gained him the nickname "The Iron Chancellor". As Chancellor, Bismarck held an important role in the German government and greatly influenced German and international politics both during and after his time of service. The Treaty of Versailles of 1871 ended the Franco-Prussian War and was signed by Adolphe Thiers, of the French Third Republic, and Otto von Bismarck, of the German Empire on February 26, 1871. This was a preliminary treaty used to solidify the initial armistice of January 27, 1871 between the two states. It was later ratified by the Treaty of Frankfurt on May 10 of the same year. The 1871 Treaty of Versailles made the decline of France obvious to the rest of the continent, and at the same time demonstrated the strength of a unified German empire. Paris's governing body, the Government of National Defense, initiated the armistice by surrendering to the Germans after the siege of Paris. Jules Favre, a prominent French politician, met with Otto von Bismarck in Versailles to sign the armistice to be put into effect January 28, 1871.

Amateur lithograph made during a trip to continental Europe by the army officer and politician Frederick William Trench (c.1777-1859).

Trench was also keenly interested in architecture: in 1815 he proposed a vast monument to British naval and military victories over France on the site which became Trafalgar Square, and in 1824 he launched a project for an embankment on the north side of the Thames (in conjunction with which a long print of the project was produced).

Justus Claproth (1728 - 1805) was a German jurist, or teacher of law, and inventor of the deinking process of recycled paper. Before the invention of the paper machine in 1799 the most common fibre source was recycled fibres from used textiles. The rags were from hemp, linen and cotton. It was not until the introduction of wood pulp in 1843 that paper production were independent of recycled materials. The process for removing printing inks from recycled paper was invented by Justus Claproth in 1774. He practiced together with German paper producer Johann Engelhard Schmid. Today this method is called deinking.
