Abstract

The ancient Germanic Empire has become, since the year 1815, a confederacy of sovereign and independent states. The Act of Constitution was signed by all the members of the confederacy at the Congress of Vienna, June 8, 1815, and consists of twenty Articles. According to the first Article, the object of the Confederation is, ‘the preservation of the internal and external security of Germany, and the independence and inviolability of the various German States.’ All the members of the German Confederation—Deutsche Bund—shall have equal rights and privileges, according to the second Article; but the participation in the general administration is limited by a number of other enactments in the following paragraphs. The organ and representative of the Confederation is the Diet of Plenipotentiaries, which is permanent, and assembles in the free city of Frankfort-on-the-Maine.
