Now, why was the period 1815 to 1914 more peaceful?

Would you please spare us the suspense and tell us what your theory is? I do not suppose that it has anything to do with the less effective firepower available prior to the 20th century. Perhaps the body counts were lower in previous centuries, but obviously that does not imply that the world was any more "peaceful" then.
