The German Empire Was Founded

The proclamation of the German Empire also called the Deutsche Reichsgründung, took place in January 1871 after the joint victory of the German states in the Franco-Prussian War. As a result of the November Treaties of the 1870s, the southern German states of Baden, Hesse-Darmstadt, with their territories south of the Mainline, Württemberg, and Bavaria, joined the Prussian-dominated "German Confederation" on 1 January 1871. On the same day, the new Constitution of the German Confederation came into force, thereby significantly extending the federal German lands to the newly created German Empire. The Day of the founding of the German Empire, the 18 January, became a day of celebration, marking when the Prussian King William I was proclaimed German Emperor in Versailles.
