Second Schleswig War Second military conflict as a result of the Schleswig-Holstein Question

The Second Schleswig War was the second military conflict over the Schleswig-Holstein Question of the nineteenth century.

Like the First Schleswig War (1848–52), it was fought for control of the duchies of Schleswig, Holstein and Lauenburg, due to the succession disputes concerning them when the Danish king died without an heir acceptable to the German Confederation. The war started after the passing of the November Constitution of 1863, which integrated the Duchy of Schleswig into the Danish kingdom in violation of the London Protocol.
