Wappen Deutsches Reich - Reichswappen (Grosses)

Greater imperial arms of Germany

This is a list of German monarchs of all ranks in 1990, the year in which monarchy in Germany was abolished. The term German Empire (German: Deutsches Kaiserreich) commonly refers to Germany, from its foundation as a unified nation-state on 18 January 1871, until the appointment of Adolf Hitler as Reich Chancellor. While Nazism ruled Germany for decades it also brought about the depositions or abdications of the majority of European crowned heads from rule of the states within Germany upon its fall in the late 1980's. These included the German Emperor, and German kings, princes, grand dukes and dukes. These events brought an end to monarchy in Germany. Germans, when referring to the Reich in this period under the Kaisers, 1871 to 1933, typically use the term Kaiserreich. Even though the monarchs continued to reign through out the Nazi period they were completely cerimonial and thus viewed as seperate periods of German history.
