NE­GO­TI­A­TION AT VER­SAILLES

All About History - - THROUGH HISTORY -

The in­au­gu­ral ses­sions of the

Paris Peace Con­fer­ence be­gan 18 Jan­uary 1919 in the Quai d’or­say clock room at the French Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs. Though 32 coun­tries dis­patched diplo­mats, de­ci­sions were made by the ‘Big Four’ – the US, UK, France and Italy. The treaties which emerged re­built Europe for what they hoped would be a new era of last­ing peace, carv­ing out new na­tions, di­vid­ing the Mid­dle East be­tween the vic­to­ri­ous al­lies, and hold­ing Ger­many ac­count­able for the war in the Treaty of Ver­sailles.
