In this paper, we do exactly what the title implies: prove the Čebotarev Density Theorem. This is an extremely valuable theorem because it is a vast generalization of Dirichlet's Theorem on primes in an arithmetic progression. Our theorem goes even further to the case of other number fields; we will show that the prime ideals in an imaginary quadratic field K are virtually equidistributed among the conjugacy classes of Artin symbols in the Galois group of a Galois extension L over K. Note that L need not be abelian over K!
