Treaty of Saint Germain 1919

 


Several treaties have been signed at Saint-Germain-en-Laye, which is near Paris, France. Among them was the Treaty of Saint Germain of 1570 and the Treaty of Saint Germain of 1679.

This one here was signed at the end of World War One, on September 10, 1919.


Here's the original text of the Treaty of Saint Germain.

Why Signed the Treaty of Saint Germain of 1919?

The Treaty of Saint Germain was concluded between Austria and the Allies (Russia, Britain, the US, France, and Italy being the main ones) of World War I.

The treaty took effect on July 16, 1920.

 

What Did the Treaty of Saint Germain Stipulate?

The treaty granted Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary, and Yugoslavia autonomy, and gave huge chunks of land to Italy and Romania. Thus, the treaty dissolved the Austro-Hungarian monarchy.

The former Habsburg empire was basically reduced to its German speaking part.

What Else Did the Treaty of Saint Germain Decree?

Austria was forbidden to team up with Germany again, both politically or economically.

Austria's army was limited to 30,000 troops.

Austria's navy was disbanded and split among the Allies, which only made sense because Austria lost her coast.

 

What Was the Impact of the Treaty of Saint Germain?

Because Austria didn't have a coastline anymore, only mountains, the country henceforth concentrated on perfecting yodeling as well as developing the traditional fashion line.

That was the end of WWI for Austria. By the way, the 1919 treaty between the Allies and Germany was the Treaty of Versailles.
