The Paris Peace Conference and the Treaty of Versailles
On December 4, 1918, President Wilson set sail for Europe to attend the Peace Conference in Paris, France, which would put an end to The First World War and he hoped pave the way for a more benevolent world order. The Conference opened on January 12, with thirty-two leaders present representing approximately 75 per cent of the world’s population. Nonetheless, meetings and negotiations were dominated by the five countries responsible for bringing an end to the war: Britain, France, Italy, Japan and the United States. Significant leaders involved in the negotiations were David Lloyd George from Britain, Georges Clemenceau from France, Vittorio Orland from Italy, and Woodrow Wilson from the United States. Negotiations continued for eight days resulting in five treaties, the most important being the Treaty of Versailles. The Treaty of Versailles related to provisions set for the Germany government. Other treaties laid out terms for other major defeated powers: The Treaty of St. Germain for Austria, The Treaty of Trianon for Hungary, The Treaty of Neuilly for Bulgaria and the Treaty of Serves for Turkey.
