Deutsche Einzelstaaten (1866 - 1867)
According to the Prussian view, the German Confederation ceased to exist on 14 June 1866; Austria recognised the dissolution of the Confederation after its defeat by Prussia at the Battle of Königsgrätz on 28 July 1866. Most German states withdrew from the German Confederation between 19 June and 16 August 1866. At its last session on 24 August 1866, the Bundestag of the German Confederation declared the dissolution of the Confederation. Until the foundation of the North German Confederation on 1 July 1867, all German states were sovereign states in the sense of international law. For the southern German states, this even applied until the founding of the Reich on 1 January 1871.
