The German Confederation (German: Deutscher Bund) was an organization of 39 German states. It was established by the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to replace the Holy Roman Empire. It was a loose political association, formed for mutual defense, with no central executive or judiciary. It was dissolved with Prussia’s defeat of Austria in the Seven Weeks’ War (1866) and the establishment of the Prussian-dominated North German Confederation.
