Oh, there was a question in OP.
>Who founded Germany?
I would say Frenchies tamed Thürings, Alemanns, Saxons and Bavarians. Then they left them alone with their countries so the Frenchies.
But not that easy to answer it. In literal sense it would be Bismarck who created Germany (but it was Wilhelm who appointed/created him as a chancellor so the merit/blame might go to him) but it depends on what we consider lawful predecessor. And it can be argued that the Austrian Empire was the real successor of the HRE as the Emperor of the latter became the Emperor of the first mentioned. But one should look into the contemporary documents and how these states defined themselves.
