Peace of Augsburg was restored in Germany. Religious co-existence Germany hit hardest 33% of population dies. Holy Roman Empire is reduced significantly. Central Europe vs. The West

Economics Increasing production also kept serfs under control of the aristocracy. Politics Weak empires Strong rulers result Maria Theresa takes over

a conglomeration of ethnic groups within the Hapsburg Empire. Prussia vs. Austria Hohenzollerns of Prussia vs. Hapsburgs of Austria. Frederick the Great would follow fathers policy to keep a strong

military order. A Father of the people. Prussia would take Silesia in 1748. Seven Years War 1756-1763 France, Austria, and Russia vs. Britain and Prussia.

Nothing changed within Europe, however, Britain gained parts of India and North America. France was the loser here, losing most of its colonies in the West Indies and North America.
