Abdication of the Kaiser (1918)
The kaiser abdicated in 1918 after the loss of WW1. There are many reasons as to why he abdicated:
- The Kiel Mutiny - Many sailors etc from the Kaiser's most trusted fleets took unauthorised leave or refused to accept orders on 30 October, 1918. Once the people knew that even the Kaisers most trusted men would not support him, they stopped supporting him themselves. This caused widespread disorder.
