b. The Treaty of Saint-Germain
1919, Sept. 10
 
Austria signed the treaty that had been submitted on July 20. This merely registered the breakup of the Habsburg monarchy, at the same time penalizing the new Austrian Republic as the representative of the old regime. Austria recognized the independence of Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Poland, and Hungary, these states being obliged to give guaranties of protection of minorities. Eastern Galicia, the Trentino, South Tyrol, Trieste, and Istria were ceded by Austria. The army was limited to 30,000 men, and Austria, like Germany, was to pay reparations for 30 years. The union of Austria with Germany was forbidden, except with consent of the Council of the League. (See Czechoslovakia)  1
