The terms of the Peace of Prague confirm those agreed by Prussia and Austria in the preliminary peace of Nikolsburg (26th July): Austria is to be excluded from Germany, while Hanover, Hesse, Nassau and Frankfurt are to be incorporated with Prussia. The South German States are to be independent, but states north of the River Main are to form a Confederation under Prussia, which also obtains Austrian Silesia and territory from Saxony and from the South German States.
