Explain the territorial rearrangements that resulted from the First World War.

Answer:

The peace treaties signed after the First World War dramatically altered the political map of the world, and Europe in particular. Three grand old dynasties of Europe were destroyed. The Romanov dynasty of Russia was dethroned during the war itself. The Hohenzollerns of Germany and the Hapsburgs of Austria-Hungary too were dethroned. Soon after the conclusion of the war, the Ottoman Empire of Turkey too ceased to exist. Austria and Hungary became separated and so did Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. Multicultural and multi-ethnic Empires came to an end and in their place largely culturally and ethnically homogenous nation states emerged. These included Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Yugoslavia. Alsace and Lorraine were returned to the French and Schleswig-Holstein was returned to Denmark.
