There was certainly good reason for this curious veneration. He served three masters, fought in three wars, which he brought about, signed three treaties of peace, arranged the meeting of the three emperors, and established the Triple Alliance. He had three horses killed under him during the Franco-German war. HD had three names— Bismarck, Schonhausen, and Lauenberg, and three titles—count, prince, and duke. The armorial bearings were a trefoil and three oak leaves, and the motto of the Vidumes of Halderstadt Bishopic, from whom he descended, is In Trinitate Robour," or Strength in Trinity.

Under hia domination were three political parties Conservatives, National Liberals, and Ultramontanes.
