  First war of Schleswig - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A counter-movement developed among the Danish population in northern Schleswig and (from 1838) in Denmark itself, where the Liberals insisted that Schleswig had belonged to Denmark for centuries and that the Eider River, the historic border between Schleswig and Holstein, should mark the frontier between Germany and Denmark.
On July 10, 1849 another truce was signed; Schleswig, until the peace, was to be administered separately, under a mixed commission, Holstein was to be governed by a vicegerent of the German empire (an arrangement equally offensive to German and Danish sentiment).
Austria and Prussia were on the verge of war, and the sole hope of preventing Russia from entering such a war on the side of Austria lay in settling the Schleswig-Holstein question in a manner desirable to her.

 Wikipedia: Frederick VIII of Schleswig and Holstein
In November 1863 Frederick claimed the twin-duchies in succession after King Frederick VII of Denmark, who also was the Duke of Schleswig and Holstein, and who had died without a male heir.
As the duchies, but not the Danish kingdom, were inherited after the salic law, the independence-movement had long nurished hopes that the king's death would lead to their goal.
Bismarck used the turbulence to invade the duchies in a Second war of Schleswig, and in the end both the independence-movement, Duke Frederick and all other interested powers were put aside, and the duchies incorporated into Prussia.

The next major war was the Austro-Prussian one, in 1866, which included all German states and Italy as allies of one or the other, and was won by Prussia at Königgrätz.
It was this war that was called "Seven Weeks War"; and this war can be called a 'spreading' of the Second Schleswig War - Bismarck provoked it by not keeping to promises over the joint control of conquered territory; and the Austrian-Italian part of this war was part of the wars for Unification of Italy.
This war was a direct consequence of the Spanish crown succession tussle after the 1868 Revolution, while the last Italian War of Unification was a sideshow to this war (Italy took its chance in September 1870 while France was unable to send troops).

 Austro-Prussian War 1866 - Prussia becomes a German and European power
The Austro-Prussian War (also called the Seven Weeks War or the German Civil War) was a war fought between Austria and Prussia in 1866 that resulted in Prussian dominance in Germany.
Having raised German national consciousness by convincing Austria to join him in the Second war of Schleswig, he then provoked a conflict over the administration of the conquered provinces of Schleswig-Holstein.
The war left Prussia dominant in Germany, and German nationalism would compel the remaining independent states to ally with Prussia in the Franco-Prussian War in 1870/71, and then to accede to the crowning of King Wilhelm as German Emperor.
