War, where Prussia defeated the Austrian Empire.
However, the battle could have gone either way. The Austrians had a
numerical advantage for much of the battle, if the Austrian had been more
coordinated and aggressive, they could have encircled the Prussian armies
and defeated it. If so Prussia would have to make peace.
Such a defeat would possibly have ruined Bismarck career. Certainly, it
would have given Austria an active and dominate part in Germany for many
years, so there is no unification of Germany. In an effort to counter
balance Austria in Germany, France would appear.
The Austria-Hungary Empire would remain an Austrian Empire. Russia would be
concerned about Austria. Both would be competing to try to get their share
of the Turkish Empire. Still if it came to an all-out war, Russia would
probably win, unless the German states go with Austria. If so probably
France would support Austria too.
France would dominate Europe, which would worry Britain.
