Biography

Am 1. April 1815 kam im Gut oder Schloss Schönhausen der spätere preußische Ministerpräsident und erste Kanzler des Deutschen Reiches, Otto von Bismarck, zur Welt, Sohn von Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand von Bismarck-Schönhausen und Wilhelmine Luise Mencke. Auch heute noch können hier die Spuren seiner landadligen Herkunft besichtigt werden.

On April 1, 1815, the future Prussian Minister President and first Chancellor of the German Reich, Otto von Bismarck, was born in the estate or palace of Schönhausen, son of Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand von Bismarck-Schönhausen and Wilhelmine Luise Mencke Even today the traces of his country-like origin can be visited here. His father descended from an aristocrat family while his mother was civil. She valued education and rational thinking. A year after his birth the family moved to Gut Kniephof in Pommerania.

Geburtshaus-Birthplace Otto von Bismarck

At his mother's discretion, Bismarck was sent to a highly regarded boarding school in Berlin in 1821. During this time he formed his unwillingness to follow authorities, because he did not like the focus on discipline and dictates.[1] In 1832 Bismarck graduated school with the highest secondary school qualification possible, the Abitur. He was described as talented at learning languages yet lazy.[2]

Throughout his life Bismarck described the relationship with his mother as reserved and cold. The relationship with his father, on the other hand, was loving.[3][4]

On the 10th of May 1832, Bismarck started studying jurisprudence at the University of Göttingen. A year later he enrolled at the University of Berlin and studied there until 1835. Three years after that he started studying agriculture in Greifswald, where he was also stationed as an army reservist.[5]

Er heiratete Johanna von Puttkamer: Otto von Bismarck hielt am 21. Dezember 1846 in Form eines diplomatisch und rhetorisch geschickt abgefassten Briefes bei Johannas Vater um die Hand dessen Tochter an, und die Hochzeit fand am 28. Juli 1847[6] in der Dorfkirche von Alt Kolziglow (heute Kołczygłowy, Polen)[7] bei Reinfeld, Rummelsburg, Pommern, Preußen statt.

He married Johanna von Puttkamer: Otto von Bismarck, on the 21st of December, 1846, asked for the hand of his daughter to Johanna's father in the form of a diplomatic and rhetorical letter, the wedding took place on 28 July 1847 in the rural church of Alt Kolziglow (nowadays Kołczygłowy, Polen) near Reinfeld, Rummelsburg, Pommern, Preußen.

Otto von Bismarck war Ministerpräsident von Preußen (1862-1873, 1873-1890) und Gründer und erster Kanzler (1871-1890) des Deutschen Reiches. Sobald das Reich gegründet wurde, verfolgte er aktiv und geschickt die Pazifikpolitik in auswärtigen Angelegenheiten, um den Frieden in Europa seit etwa zwei Jahrzehnten zu bewahren.

Otto von Bismarck was Prime minister of Prussia (1862-1873, 1873-1890) and founder and first chancellor (1871-1890) of the German Empire. Once the empire was established, he actively and skillfully pursued pacific policies in foreign affairs, succeeding in preserving the peace in Europe for about two decades.[8]

He passed away on 30 Jul 1898 in Friedrichsruh, Aumühle, Herzogtum Lauenburg, Province of Schleswig-Holstein, Preußen.
