German history from 1919 to 1933
An overview
\u2022Before 1918, the most powerful person in Germany was

Kaiser Willhelm II. He was head of the government,
appointing ministers to run the country. He was head of
the civil service and commander of the armed forces.
Usually, it is said that, due to all these powers, the
government of Germany was almost a military autocracy.

\u2022But despite the Kaiser\u2019s powers, Germany\u2019s government

did have some democratic features: men of 25 and over
had the right to vote for a parliament called theReichstag.
This voted on the laws which the Kaiser and his ministers
drew up. However, the Reichstag had no say in foreign or
military affairs, nor in choosing of ministers.

\u2022In autumn 1918 the Allies had clearly won
the war and Germany was in a state of chaos.
\u2022The Allies offered Germany peace, but under
strict conditions. One of them was that
Germany should become more democratic.
\u2022Kaiser Willhelm IIthen allowed the main

parties in the Reichstag, Germany\u2019s
Parliament, to form a new government which
took away many of the Kaiser\u2019s powers and
gave them to the Reichstag.
