Max of Baden


Born July 10, 1867, in Baden-Baden; died Nov. 6, 1929, in Konstanz. Heir to the throne of Baden. Imperial chancellor of Germany in 1918.

During the final period of World War I, while maintaining an imperialist position, Max of Baden advocated the limitation of Germany’s expansionist goals and the implementation of partial reforms in order to prevent a revolution. Under the conditions of Germany’s military defeat, on Oct. 3, 1918, he was set up as head of a pseudoliberal government whose main goal was to save the monarchy. The government of Max of Baden and the Kaiser’s regime as a whole were swept away by the November Revolution of 1918.
