International relations between the European powers from 1871 to 1893 revolved around the complex system of alliances imposed by Bismarck thanks to the preponderance of the German Empire following its state unification and the French defeat in the Franco-Prussian war. The Bismarckian system aimed to preserve the European status quo while favoring Germany’s interests by making it a European power.
France’s defeat in the war of 1871 was a national trauma for French society, leading to the loss of national territory and a clear desire for revenge against the German Empire. To avoid this French resentment, Bismarck’s policy of alliances sought to isolate France diplomatically.
The tariff war between Italy and France in 1882 was joined by the establishment of a British protectorate in Egypt, in which France had had an interest since the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 and which led to the weakening of Franco-British relations.
