The Treaty of Trianon
Treaty of Trianon
was the peace agreement of 1920 to formally end World War I
World War I
between most of the Allies of World War I[1] and the Kingdom of Hungary, the latter being one of the successor states to Austria-Hungary.[2][3][4][5] The treaty regulated the status of an independent Hungarian state and defined its borders. It left Hungary as a landlocked state covering 93,073 square kilometres (35,936 sq mi), only 28% of the 325,411 square kilometres (125,642 sq mi) that had constituted the pre-war Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
(the Hungarian half of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy). Its population was 7.6 million, only 36% of the pre-war kingdom's population of 20.9 million.[6] The areas that were allocated to neighbouring countries in total (and each of them separately) possessed a majority of non-Hungarian population, but 31% of Hungarians
Hungarians
(3.3 million)[7] were left outside of post-Trianon Hungary.[8][9][10] Five of the pre-war kingdom's ten largest cities were drawn into other countries. The treaty limited Hungary's army to 35,000 officers and men, while the Austro-Hungarian Navy
Austro-Hungarian Navy
ceased to exist. The principal beneficiaries of territorial division of pre-war Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
were the Kingdom of Romania, the Czechoslovak Republic, and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. One of the main elements of the treaty was the doctrine of "self-determination of peoples" and it was an attempt to give the non- Hungarians
Hungarians
their own national states.[11] In addition, Hungary
Hungary
had to pay war reparations to its neighbours. The treaty was dictated by the Allies rather than negotiated and the Hungarians
Hungarians
had no option but to accept its terms.[11] The Hungarian delegation signed the treaty under protest[8][12] on 4 June 1920 at the Grand Trianon Palace in Versailles, France. The treaty was registered in League of Nations Treaty Series on 24 August 1921.[13] The modern boundaries of Hungary
Hungary
are the same as those defined by the Treaty of Trianon, with some minor modifications up to 1924 and the notable exception of three villages that were transferred to Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
in 1947.[citation needed]

The Hungarian government terminated its union with Austria
Austria
on 31 October 1918, officially dissolving the Austro-Hungarian state. The de facto temporary borders of independent Hungary
Hungary
were defined by the ceasefire lines in November–December 1918. Compared with the pre-war Kingdom of Hungary, these temporary borders did not include:

Part of Transylvania
Transylvania
south of the Mureş river and east of the Someş river, which came under the control of Romania
Romania
(cease-fire agreement of Belgrade
Belgrade
signed on 13 November 1918). On 1 December 1918, the National Assembly of Romanians
Romanians
in Transylvania
Transylvania
declared union with the Kingdom of Romania. Slovakia, which became part of Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
(status quo set by the Czechoslovak legions and accepted by the Entente on 25 November 1918). Afterwards the Slovak politician Milan Hodža
Milan Hodža
discussed with the Hungarian Minister of Defence, Albert Bartha, a temporary demarcation line which had not followed the Slovak-Hungarian linguistic border, and left more than 900,000 Hungarians
Hungarians
in the newly formed Czechoslovakia. That was signed on 6 December 1918. South Slavic lands, which, after the war, were organised into two political formations – the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs
State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs
and Banat, Bačka and Baranja, which both came under control of South Slavs, according to the ceasefire agreement of Belgrade
Belgrade
signed on 13 November 1918. Previously, on 29 October 1918, the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia
Croatia-Slavonia
parliament, an autonomous kingdom within the Transleithania, terminated[14] the union[15] with the Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
and on 30 October 1918 the Hungarian diet adopted a motion declaring that the constitutional relations between the two states have ended.[16] Croatia-Slavonia
Croatia-Slavonia
was included in a newly formed State of Slovenes, Croats, and Serbs
Serbs
(which also included some other South Slavic territories, formerly administered by Austria-Hungary) on 29 October 1918. This state

and the Kingdom of Serbia
Kingdom of Serbia
formed the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats
Croats
and Slovenes (Yugoslavia) on 1 December 1918. The territories of Banat, Bačka and Baranja (which included most of the pre-war Hungariand counties of Baranya, Bács-Bodrog, Torontál, and Temes) came under military control by the Kingdom of Serbia
Kingdom of Serbia
and political control by local South Slavs. The Great People's Assembly of Serbs, Bunjevci, and other Slavs from Banat, Bačkam and Baranja declared union of this region with Serbia
Serbia
on 25 November 1918. The ceasefire line had the character of a temporary international border until the treaty. The central parts of Banat were later assigned to Romania, respecting the wishes of Romanians
Romanians
from this area, which, on 1 December 1918, were present in the National Assembly of Romanians
Romanians
in Alba Iulia, which voted for union with the Kingdom of Romania.

The city of Fiume
Fiume
(Rijeka) was occupied by the Italian nationalists group. Its affiliation was a matter of international dispute between the Kingdom of Italy
Kingdom of Italy
and Yugoslavia. Croatian-populated territories in modern Međimurje
Međimurje
remained under Hungarian control after the ceasefire agreement of Belgrade
Belgrade
from 13 November 1918. After the military victory of Croatian forces led by Slavko Kvaternik
Slavko Kvaternik
in Međimurje
Međimurje
against Hungarian forces, this region voted in the Great Assembly of 9 January 1919 for separation from Hungary
Hungary
and entry into Yugoslavia.[17]

After the Romanian Army
Romanian Army
advanced beyond this cease-fire line, the Entente powers
Entente powers
asked Hungary
Hungary
(Vix Note) to acknowledge the new Romanian territory gains by a new line set along the Tisza
Tisza
river. Unable to reject these terms and unwilling to accept them, the leaders of the Hungarian Democratic Republic resigned and the Communists seized power. In spite of the country being under Allied blockade, the Hungarian Soviet Republic
Hungarian Soviet Republic
was formed and the Hungarian Red Army
Hungarian Red Army
was rapidly set up. This army was initially successful against the Czechoslovak Legions, due to covert food[18] and arms aid from Italy.[19] This made it possible for Hungary
Hungary
to reach nearly the former Galician (Polish) border, thus separating the Czechoslovak and Romanian troops from each other. After a Hungarian-Czechoslovak cease-fire signed on 1 July 1919, the Hungarian Red Army
Hungarian Red Army
left parts of Slovakia
Slovakia
by 4 July, as the Entente powers promised to invite a Hungarian delegation to the Versailles Peace Conference. In the end, this particular invitation was not issued. Béla Kun, leader of the Hungarian Soviet Republic, then turned the Hungarian Red Army
Hungarian Red Army
on the Romanian Army
Romanian Army
and attacked at the Tisza
Tisza
river on 20 July 1919. After fierce fighting that lasted some five days, the Hungarian Red Army
Hungarian Red Army
collapsed. The Royal Romanian Army marched into Budapest
Budapest
on 4 August 1919. The Hungarian state was restored by the Entente powers, helping Admiral Horthy into power in November 1919. On 1 December 1919 the Hungarian delegation was officially invited to the Versailles Peace Conference; however, the newly defined borders of Hungary
Hungary
were nearly concluded without the presence of the Hungarians.[20] During prior negotiations, the Hungarian party, along with the Austrian, advocated the American principle of self-determination: that the population of disputed territories should decide by free plebiscite to which country they wished to belong.[20][21] This view did not prevail for long, as it was disregarded by the decisive French and British delegates.[22] According to some opinions, the Allies drafted the outline of the new frontiers [23] with little or no regard to the historical, cultural, ethnic, geographic, economic and strategic aspects of the region.[20][23][24] The Allies assigned territories that were mostly populated by non-Hungarian ethnicities to successor states, but also allowed these states to absorb sizeable territories that were mainly inhabited by Hungarian-speaking populations. For instance, Romania gained all of Transylvania, which was home to 2,800,000 Romanians, but also contained a significant minority of 1,600,000 Magyars
Magyars
and about 250,000 Germans.[25] The intent of the Allies was principally to strengthen these successor states at the expense of Hungary. Although the countries that were the main beneficiaries of the treaty partially noted the issues, the Hungarian delegates tried to draw attention to them. Their views were disregarded by the Allied representatives. Some predominantly Hungarian settlements, consisting of more than two million people, were situated in a typically 20–50 km (12–31 mi) wide strip along the new borders in foreign territory. More concentrated groups were found in Czechoslovakia (parts of southern Slovakia), Yugoslavia
Yugoslavia
(parts of northern Vojvodina), and Romania
Romania
(parts of Transylvania). The final borders of Hungary
Hungary
were defined by the Treaty of Trianon signed on 4 June 1920. Beside exclusion of the previously mentioned territories, they did not include:

the rest of Transylvania, which together with some additional parts of the pre-war Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
became part of Romania; Carpathian Ruthenia, which became part of Czechoslovakia, pursuant to the Treaty of Saint-Germain
Treaty of Saint-Germain
in 1919; most of Burgenland, which became part of Austria, also pursuant to the Treaty of Saint-Germain
Treaty of Saint-Germain
(the district of Sopron
Sopron
opted to remain within Hungary
Hungary
after a plebiscite held in December 1921, the only place where a plebiscite was held and factored in the decision); Međimurje
Međimurje
and the 2/3 of the Slovene March or Vendvidék (now Prekmurje), which became part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats
Croats
and Slovenes.

By the Treaty of Trianon, the cities of Pécs, Mohács, Baja and Szigetvár, which were under Serb-Croat-Slovene administration after November 1918, were assigned to Hungary. An arbitration committee in 1920 assigned small northern parts of the former Árva
Árva
and Szepes counties of the Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
with Polish majority population to Poland. After 1918, Hungary
Hungary
did not have access to the sea, which pre-war Hungary
Hungary
formerly had directly through the Rijeka
Rijeka
coastline and indirectly through Croatia-Slavonia. With the help of Nazi Germany
Nazi Germany
and Fascist Italy, Hungary
Hungary
expanded its borders towards neighbouring countries at the outset of World War II. This started under the Munich Agreement
Munich Agreement
(1938), then the two Vienna Awards (1938 and 1940), and was continued with the dissolution of Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
(occupation of northern Carpathian Ruthenia
Carpathian Ruthenia
and eastern Slovakia) and the Axis invasion of Yugoslavia. This territorial expansion was short-lived, since the post-war Hungarian boundaries in the Paris Peace Treaties, 1947
Paris Peace Treaties, 1947
were nearly identical to those of 1920 (with three villages – Jarovce, Rusovce, and Čunovo
Čunovo
– transferred to Czechoslovakia).

Representatives of small nations living in the former Austria-Hungary and active in the Congress of Oppressed Nations regarded the treaty of Trianon for being an act of historical righteousness[26] because a better future for their nations was "to be founded and durably assured on the firm basis of world democracy, real and sovereign government by the people, and a universal alliance of the nations vested with the authority of arbitration" while at the same time making a call for putting an end to "the existing unbearable domination of one nation over the other" and making it possible "for nations to organize their relations to each other on the basis of equal rights and free conventions". Furthermore, they believed the treaty would help toward a new era of dependence on international law, the fraternity of nations, equal rights, and human liberty as well as aid civilisation in the effort to free humanity from international violence.[27] Results and consequences of the Treaty[edit]

The 1910 census[edit] The last census before the Treaty of Trianon
Treaty of Trianon
was held in 1910. This census recorded population by language and religion, but not by ethnicity. However, it is generally accepted that the largest ethnic group in the Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
in this time were the Hungarians. According to the 1910 census, speakers of the Hungarian language included approximately 48% of the entire population of the kingdom, and 54% of the population of the territory referred to as "Hungary proper", i.e. excluding Croatia-Slavonia. Within the borders of " Hungary
Hungary
proper" numerous ethnic minorities were present: 16.1% Romanians, 10.5% Slovaks, 10.4% Germans, 2.5% Ruthenians, 2.5% Serbs and 8% others.[31] 5% of the population of " Hungary
Hungary
proper" were Jews, who were included in speakers of the Hungarian language.[32] The population of the autonomous Croatia-Slavonia
Croatia-Slavonia
was mostly composed of Croats
Croats
and Serbs
Serbs
(who together counted 87% of population). Criticism of the 1910 census[edit] The census of 1910 classified the residents of the Kingdom of Hungary by their native languages[33] and religions, so it presents the preferred language of the individual, which may or may not correspond to the individual's ethnic identity. To make the situation even more complex, in the multilingual kingdom there were territories with ethnically mixed populations where people spoke two or even three languages natively. For example, in Slovakia
Slovakia
18% of the Slovaks, 33% of the Hungarians
Hungarians
and 65% of the Germans
Germans
were bilingual. In addition, 21% of the Germans
Germans
in the region spoke both Slovak and Hungarian beside German.[34] These reasons are ground for debate about the accuracy of the census. While several demographers (David W. Paul,[35] Peter Hanak, László Katus[36]) state that the outcome of the census is reasonably accurate (assuming that it is also properly interpreted), others believe that the 1910 census was manipulated[37][38] by exaggerating the percentage of the speakers of Hungarian, pointing to the discrepancy between an improbably high growth of the Hungarian-speaking population and the decrease of percentual participation of speakers of other languages due to Magyarization
Magyarization
in the kingdom in the late 19th century.[39] Some Slovak demographers (such as Ján Svetoň (sk) and Julius Mesaros) dispute the result of every pre-war census.[35] Owen Johnson, an American historian, accepts the numbers of the earlier censuses up to the one in 1900, according to which the proportion of the Hungarians
Hungarians
was 51.4%,[31] but he neglects the 1910 census as he thinks the changes since the last census are too big.[35] It is also argued that there were different results in previous censuses in the Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
and subsequent censuses in the new states. Considering the size of discrepancies, some demographers are on the opinion that these censuses were somewhat biased in the favour of the respective ruling nation.[40] Distribution of the non-Hungarian and Hungarian populations[edit] The number of non-Hungarian and Hungarian communities in the different areas based on the census data of 1910 (in this, people were not directly asked about their ethnicity, but about their native language).

The territories of the former Hungarian Kingdom that were ceded by the treaty to neighbouring countries in total (and each of them separately) had a majority of non-Hungarian nationals, however the Hungarian ethnic area was much larger than the newly established territory of Hungary,[42] therefore 30 percent of the ethnic Hungarians
Hungarians
were under foreign authority.[43] After the treaty, the percentage and the absolute number of all Hungarian populations outside of Hungary
Hungary
decreased in the next decades (although, some of these populations also recorded temporary increase of the absolute population number). There are several reasons for this population decrease, some of which were spontaneous assimilation and certain state policies, like Slovakization, Romanianization, Serbianisation.[citation needed] Other important factors were the Hungarian migration from the neighbouring states to Hungary
Hungary
or to some western countries as well as decreased birth rate of Hungarian populations. According to the National Office for Refugees, the number of Hungarians
Hungarians
who immigrated to Hungary
Hungary
from neighbouring countries was about 350,000 between 1918 and 1924.[44] Minorities in post-Trianon Hungary[edit] On the other hand, a considerable number of other nationalities remained within the frontiers of the independent Hungary: According to the 1920 census 10.4% of the population spoke one of the minority languages as mother language:

551,212 German (6.9%) 141,882 Slovak (1.8%) 36,858 Croatian (0.5%) 23,760 Romanian (0.3%) 23,228 Bunjevac and Šokac (0.3%) 17,131 Serbian (0.2%) 7,000 Slovene (0.08%)

The percentage and the absolute number of all non-Hungarian nationalities decreased in the next decades, although the total population of the country increased. Bilingualism was also disappearing. The main reasons of this process were both spontaneous assimilation and the deliberate Magyarization
Magyarization
policy of the state. Minorities made up 8% of the total population in 1930 and 7% in 1941 (on the post-Trianon territory).[citation needed] After World War II
World War II
approximately 200,000 Germans

was seen as an act of national liberation by the Vojvodinian Serbs.

Officially the treaty was intended to be a confirmation of the right of self-determination for nations and of the concept of nation-states replacing the old multinational Austro-Hungarian empire. Although the treaty addressed some nationality issues, it also sparked some new ones. The minority ethnic groups of the pre-war kingdom were the major beneficiaries. The Allies had explicitly committed themselves to the causes of the minority peoples of Austria- Hungary
Hungary
late in World War I. For all intents and purposes, the death knell of the Austro-Hungarian empire sounded on 14 October 1918, when United States
United States
Secretary of State Robert Lansing
Robert Lansing
informed Austro-Hungarian Foreign Minister István Burián
István Burián
that autonomy for the nationalities was no longer enough. Accordingly, the Allies assumed without question that the minority ethnic groups of the pre-war kingdom wanted to leave Hungary. The Romanians
Romanians
joined their ethnic brethren in Romania, while the Slovaks, Serbs
Serbs
and Croats
Croats
helped establish nation-states of their own ( Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
and Yugoslavia). However, these new or enlarged countries also absorbed large slices of territory with a majority of ethnic Hungarians
Hungarians
or Hungarian speaking population. As a result, as many as a third of Hungarian language-speakers found themselves outside the borders of the post-Trianon Hungary. While the territories that were now outside Hungary's borders had non-Hungarian majorities overall, there also existed some sizeable areas with a majority of Hungarians, largely near the newly defined borders. Over the last century, concerns have occasionally been raised about the treatment of these ethnic Hungarian communities in the neighbouring states.[48][49][50] Areas with significant Hungarian populations included the Székely Land[51] in Eastern Transylvania, the area along the newly defined Romanian-Hungarian border (cities of Arad, Oradea), the area north of the newly defined Czechoslovakian–Hungarian border (Komárno, Csallóköz), southern parts of Subcarpathia and northern parts of Vojvodina. The Allies rejected the idea of plebiscites in the disputed areas with the exception of the city of Sopron, which voted in favour of Hungary. The Allies were indifferent as to the exact line of the newly defined border between Austria
Austria
and Hungary. Furthermore, ethnically diverse Transylvania, with an overall Romanian majority (53.8% – 1910 census data or 57.1% – 1919 census data or 57.3% – 1920 census data), was treated as a single entity at the peace negotiations and was assigned in its entirety to Romania. The option of partition along ethnic lines as an alternative was rejected. Another reason why the victorious Allies decided to dissolve the Central-European great power, Austria-Hungary, a strong German supporter and fast developing region, was to prevent Germany
Germany
from acquiring substantial influence in the future.[52] The Western powers' main priority was to prevent a resurgence of the German Reich
German Reich
and they therefore decided that her allies in the region, Austria
Austria
and Hungary, should be "contained" by a ring of states friendly to the Allies,[citation needed] each of which would be bigger than either Austria
Austria
or Hungary.[53] Compared to the Habsburg Kingdom of Hungary, post-Trianon Hungary
Hungary
had 60% less population and its political and economic footprint in the region was significantly reduced. Hungary lost connection to strategic military and economic infrastructure due to the concentric layout of the railway and road network which the borders bisected. In addition, the structure of its economy collapsed, because it had relied on other parts of the pre-war Kingdom. The country also lost access to the Mediterranean and to the important sea port of Rijeka
Rijeka
(Fiume), and became landlocked, which had a negative effect on sea trading and strategic naval operations. Furthermore, many trading routes that went through the newly defined borders from various parts of the pre-war kingdom were abandoned. With regard to the ethnic issues, the Western powers were aware of the problem posed by the presence of so many Hungarians
Hungarians
(and Germans) living outside the new nation-states of Hungary
Hungary
and Austria. The Romanian delegation to Versailles feared in 1919 that the Allies were beginning to favour the partition of Transylvania
Transylvania
along ethnic lines to reduce the potential exodus[citation needed] and Prime Minister Ion I. C. Brătianu even summoned British-born Queen Marie to France
France
to strengthen their case. The Romanians
Romanians
had suffered a higher relative casualty rate in the war than either Britain[54][55][56] or France[55][56][57] so it was considered that the Western powers had a moral debt to repay. In absolute terms, Romanian troops had considerably fewer casualties than either Britain or France, however.[56] The underlying reason for the decision was a secret pact between The Entente and Romania.[58] In the Treaty of Bucharest (1916) Romania
Romania
was promised Transylvania
Transylvania
and territories to the east of river Tisza, provided that she attacked Austria- Hungary
Hungary
from the south-east, where defences were weak. However, after the Central Powers
Central Powers
had noticed the military manoeuvre, the attempt was quickly choked off and Bucharest fell in the same year.

By the time the victorious Allies arrived in France, the treaty was already settled, which made the outcome inevitable. At the heart of the dispute lay fundamentally different views on the nature of the Hungarian presence in the disputed territories. For Hungarians, the outer territories were not seen as colonial territories, but rather part of the core national territory.[59] The non- Hungarians
Hungarians
that lived in the Pannonian Basin saw the Hungarians
Hungarians
as colonial-style rulers who had oppressed the Slavs and Romanians
Romanians
since 1848, when they introduced laws that the language used in education and in local offices was to be Hungarian.[60] For non- Hungarians
Hungarians
from the Pannonian Basin it was a process of decolonisation instead of a punitive dismemberment (as was seen by the Hungarians).[61] The Hungarians
Hungarians
did not see it this way because the newly defined borders did not fully respect territorial distribution of ethnic groups,[62] with areas where there were Hungarian majorities[62] outside the new borders. The French sided with their allies the Romanians
Romanians
who had a long policy of cultural ties to France
France
since the country broke from the Ottoman Empire (due in part to the relative ease at which Romanians
Romanians
could learn French)[63] although Clemenceau personally detested Bratianu.[61] President Wilson initially supported the outline of a border that would have more respect to ethnic distribution of population based on the Coolidge Report, led by A. C. Coolidge, a Harvard professor, but later gave in, due to changing international politics and as a courtesy to other allies.[64] For Hungarian public opinion, the fact that almost three-fourths of the pre-war kingdom's territory and a significant number of ethnic Hungarians
Hungarians
were assigned to neighbouring countries triggered considerable bitterness. Most Hungarians
Hungarians
preferred to maintain the territorial integrity of the pre-war kingdom. The Hungarian politicians claimed that they were ready to give the non-Hungarian ethnicities a great deal of autonomy.[65] Most Hungarians
Hungarians
regarded the treaty as an insult to the nation's honour. The Hungarian political attitude towards Trianon was summed up in the phrases Nem, nem, soha! ("No, no, never!") and Mindent vissza! ("Return everything!" or "Everything back!").[66] The perceived humiliation of the treaty became a dominant theme in inter-war Hungarian politics, analogous with the German reaction to the Treaty of Versailles. The outcome of the Treaty of Trianon
Treaty of Trianon
is to this day remembered in Hungary
Hungary
as the Trianon trauma.[51] All official flags in Hungary
Hungary
were lowered until 1938, when they were raised by one-third[67] after southern Slovakia
Slovakia
and Ruthenia, with respectively 59% and 86% Hungarian populations,[68] were annexed following the peacetime Munich Conference and First Vienna
Vienna
Award, whereby Nazi Germany
Nazi Germany
and Fascist Italy sought to satisfy Hungarian territorial claims. Hungarian irredentism fuelled not only the post-war kingdom's revisionist foreign policy[59] but was also a source of regional tension after the Cold War.[59] Economic consequences[edit]

Trianon memorial, Kiskunhalas.

The Austro-Hungarian Empire
Austro-Hungarian Empire
was one economic unit with autarkic characteristics[69][70] during its golden age and therefore achieved rapid growth, especially in the early 20th century when GNP grew by 1.76%.[71] (That level of growth compared very favourably to that of other European nations such as Britain (1.00%), France
France
(1.06%), and Germany
Germany
(1.51%).) There was also a division of labour present throughout the empire: that is, in the Austrian part of the Monarchy manufacturing industries were highly advanced, while in the Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
an agroindustrial economy had emerged. By the late 19th century, economic growth of the eastern regions consistently surpassed that of western, thus discrepancies eventually began to diminish. The key success of fast development was specialisation of each region in fields that they were best. The Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
was the main supplier of wheat, rye, barley and other various goods in the empire and these comprised a large portion of the empire's exports.[72] Meanwhile, the territory of present-day Czech Republic (Kingdom of Bohemia) owned 75% of the whole industrial capacity of former Austria-Hungary.[73] This shows that the various parts of the former monarchy were economically interdependent. As a further illustration of this issue, post-Trianon Hungary
Hungary
produced 500% more agricultural goods than it needed for itself[74] and mills around Budapest
Budapest
(some of the largest ones in Europe at the time) operated at 20% level. As a consequence of the treaty, all the competitive industries of the former empire were compelled to close doors, as great capacity was met by negligible demand owing to economic barriers presented in the form of the newly defined borders. Post-Trianon Hungary
Hungary
possessed 90% of the engineering and printing industry of the pre-war Kingdom, while only 11% of timber and 16% of iron was retained. In addition, 61% of arable land, 74% of public roads, 65% of canals, 62% of railroads, 64% of hard surface roads, 83% of pig iron output, 55% of industrial plants, and 67% of credit and banking institutions of the former Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
lay within the territory of Hungary's neighbours.[75][76][77] New borders also bisected transport links – in the Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
the road and railway network had a radial structure, with Budapest
Budapest
in the centre. Many roads and railways, running along the newly defined borders and interlinking radial transport lines, ended up in different, highly introvert countries. Hence, much of the rail cargo traffic of the emergent states was virtually paralysed.[78] These factors all combined created some imbalances in the now separated economic regions of the former Monarchy.

Professor A. C. Coolidge.

The disseminating economic problems had been also noted in the Coolidge Report as a serious potential aftermath of the treaty.[22] This opinion was not taken into account during the negotiations. Thus, the resulting uneasiness and despondency of one part of the concerned population was later one of the main antecedents of World War II. Unemployment
Unemployment
levels in Austria, as well as in Hungary, were dangerously high, and industrial output dropped by 65%. What happened to Austria
Austria
in industry happened to Hungary
Hungary
in agriculture where production of grain declined by more than 70%.[79] Austria, especially the imperial capital Vienna, was a leading investor of development projects throughout the empire with more than 2.2 billion crown capital. This sum sunk to a mere 8.6 million crowns after the treaty took effect and resulted in a starving of capital in other regions of the former empire.[80] The disintegration of the multi-national state conversely impacted neighbouring countries, too: In Poland, Romania, Yugoslavia, and Bulgaria a fifth to a third of the rural population could find no work, and industry was in no position to absorb them. In comparison, by 1921 the new Czechoslovak state reached 75% of its pre-war production owing to their favourable position among the victors, and greater associated access to international rehabilitation resources.[81] With the creation of customs barriers and fragmented protective economies, the economic growth and outlook in the region sharply declined,[82] ultimately culminating in a deep recession. It proved to be immensely challenging for the successor states to successfully transform their economies to adapt to the new circumstances. All the formal districts of Austria- Hungary
Hungary
used to rely on each other's exports for growth and welfare; by contrast, 5 years after the treaty, traffic of goods between the countries dropped to less than 5% of its former value. This could be attributed to the introduction of aggressive nationalistic policies by local political leaders.[83] The drastic shift in economic climate forced the countries to re-evaluate their situation and to promote industries where they had fallen short. Austria
Austria
and Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
subsidised the mill, sugar and brewing industries, while Hungary
Hungary
attempted to increase the efficiency of iron, steel, glass and chemical industries.[69][84] The stated objective was that all countries should become self-sufficient. This tendency, however, led to uniform economies and competitive economic advantage of long well-established industries and research fields evaporated. The lack of specialisation adversely affected the whole Danube-Carpathian region and caused a distinct setback of growth and development compared to the West as well as high financial vulnerability and instability.[85][86] Miscellaneous consequences[edit]

had to assume part of the financial obligations of the former Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
on account of the parts of its former territory that were assigned under their sovereignty. Some conditions of the Treaty were similar to those imposed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles. After the war, the Austro-Hungarian navy, air force and army were disbanded. The army of post-Trianon Hungary was to be restricted to 35,000 men and there was to be no conscription. Heavy artillery, tanks and air force were prohibited.[77] Further provisions stated that in Hungary, no railway would be built with more than one track, because at that time railways held substantial strategic importance economically and militarily.[87] Hungary
Hungary
also renounced all privileges in territories outside Europe that were administered by the former Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Articles 54–60 of the Treaty required Hungary
Hungary
to recognise various rights of national minorities within its borders.[88] Articles 61–66 stated that all former citizens of the Kingdom of Hungary
Hungary
living outside the newly defined frontiers of Hungary
Hungary
were to ipso facto lose their Hungarian nationality in one year.[89] See also[edit]
