The Central Powers were one of the two main alliances during the Weltkrieg. They faced and defeated the Entente in the greatest armed conflict in history between 1914 and 1921. Despite emerging victorious after the Weltkrieg the alliance was dissolved and partially replaced by the German-led Reichspakt.

Members of the Central Powers


After the Peace with Honour was signed in 1921 the Central Powers were dissolved as an alliance due to diverging geopolitical interests, as well as a stronger concentration on internal and national politics. The former members of the Central Powers generally maintain cordial relations.
