Then came the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne first European unpleasantness]] over a silly thing in the Balkans. Long story short, Germany lost and a [[UsefulNotes/WeimarRepublic republic]] was declared. Humiliated by the defeat and territorial losses and burdened by the reparations mandated by the Treaty of Versailles, the Weimar Republic was off to a bad start. It was plagued by political instability (in the 14 years of its existence, it had 14 chancellors) and economic troubles--all of which destroyed the credibility of the government. This and a number of other factors contributed to the rise of UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and the subsequent [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo second European unpleasantness]].

And then came NapoleonBonaparte. He steamrolled most of Europe, defeated the traditional monarchies and basically forced the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire. Thanks to his influence, the borders were radically restructured and of hundreds of states, only around forty were left.

The Germanic tribes were already known to the [[AncientRome Romans]], and despite a series of bloody wars were never all incorporated into the empire. After the fall of Rome, they expanded into what are today France (also giving it its name), Italy and Eastern Europe, laying the foundation for the historical borders of the UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire.

With the Reformation came the slow development of a standard UsefulNotes/GermanLanguage, which would ultimately foster a spirit of common German-ness, but first led to horrific religious bloodshed and was another nail in the coffin of the Holy Roman Empire (which became mostly an additional title for the Habsburg monarchs-- although technically the Holy Roman Empire was elected among the princes of Germany, it was held by someone from the house of Habsburg from 1415 until 1806 with only a short break from 1742-1745). The reformation itself, incidentally, went only half-way. Today, about half the Germans are Protestants and half are Catholic. Rome and the Papacy still look at anything the German Catholics cook up with a lot of skepticism--after all, those same Catholics also cooked up the Reformation.

Today, about half the Germans are Protestants and half are Catholic.Catholic, split fairly evenly with the former being predominantly in Northern Germany and the latter in the South (particularly in Bavaria).
