If, with the formal dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806, one period of the constitutional history of Germany ended, the disruption of the German Confederation, in 1866, brought another period of that history to a no less definite termination. The break between the North German Bwnd 1 From a wealth of material the following literature may be cited Aigidi und Klauhold, Das Staatsarchw, Bd. X. ff.

The legal continuity between the North German Bund and the present Empire, however, is complete. The modern German State is not something different juristically from the North German Bund. It is rather an expansion of it. The Imperial Constitution is the federal constitution revised. Long before the tension between Prussia and Austria had been brought to the point of breaking by thedevelopment of the Schleswig-Holstein affair, the constitutional organiza tion of the German State, under the provisions of the Bundes akt, had proven hopelessly inadequate.
