399) Otto von Bismarck

Otto von Bismarck (1815 - 1898). Prussian statesman who dominated German and European affairs from the 1860s until 1890 and was the first Chancellor of the German Empire between 1871 and 1890.
"The man who embodied his country's new mood was a six-foot-tall Junker with flaming red hair, Otto von Bismarck."
"A fellow student described at the time, "He had course scrubby hair, of a mixed color, something between red and whitey-brown."
"When Otto started to grow up he turned into a red-haired boy who knew how it was like to caught between two rival powers."
