  1. Hi, I’m the consultant for the series. Since there are many comments about this, I’ll just post here and stop replying to everyone. There was indeed a disagreement over the Spanish throne in 1870, which led to the Ems Dispatch, etc. There was also a 1867 dispute over who would rule Luxembourg that almost led to France and Prussia going to war. So by 1870, the relationship was already quite tense. Basically Bismarck had secretly promised France control/dominion over Luxembourg if France stayed out of the Austrian-Prussian war. Then Bismarck backed out of the deal.

John Green, I know mispronunciation is your thing, but the northernmost German state is pronounced Shley-svig Holstein, where the first syllable is like "sleigh" but slurred and the second syllable rhymes with "league". Sorry, I know it's pedantic, but it's where my Opa and Oma are from. Love the series!
