Thus, the Parliament failed to attract mass support. The Parliament was divided. Most representatives wanted a constitutional monarchy incorporating liberal ideals of limited democracy (page 32). This alienated radicals (who wanted to go much further) and outraged conservatives (page 35). There was uncertainty about the geographical extent of ‘Germany’ and no resolution of the Kleindeutschland–Grossdeutschland debate (page 34). Discussions in the Parliament were ill-organised. There was plenty of talk but little action (see page 33).
