The annexation

At the turn on the 18th century when the industrial revolution began its inexorable march forwards, Poland lost its independence. After successive partitions, 82% of the territory of the Republic of Poland was under Russian rule, 11% was occupied by Austria, and 7% by Prussia. Over the following 100 years, when the world's railway industry was emerging, the division had a significant impact on how it developed in Poland.
