The two Danish-Prussian wars has been a
important part of Danish history and our
national
self-conception for the last 150
years. At the same time it was an important
part of European history as it was the first
part of Bismarcks plan for a united German empire. 
 
The memory of 1864 have had significant
importance for Danish  foreigh politics
prior to and during WW I.
