First attempt of democratic rule in Germany

The Weimar Republic was the government of Germany from 1919 to 1933; so called because the assembly that adopted its constitution met at Weimar from February 6 to August 11, 1919.[1] This new government and underlying democratic system was formed following the end of World War I and the abdication of Emperor Wilhelm II. During it's time it had to face social unrest and economic difficulties, to a great extent caused by the Treaty of Versailles. The early 1920s saw hyperinflation in Germany.[2]
