World War One Aftermath: 1920-1923 Treaties

In GCSE History, students will look at World War One and its aftermath. One topic that is covered is the peace settlements and treaties signed after the war's end. This is the third of four quizzes on that subject and it looks specifically at the treaties signed between 1920-1923.

The 1919 Treaty of Versailles, which marked the end of World War One, was followed by four others between 1920-1923. This was because a separate treaty had to be signed with each of Germany's allies. One of those allies needed two treaties in the end, as they were successfully able to object to the first one - agreed in 1920.

Find out more about the treaties signed between 1920-1923, in the aftermath of World War One, in this quiz.

  1. Britain was granted a second mandate in the Western Middle East, apart from the one in Palestine. By what name was this area known at first?
    This acquisition seemed to complement the other mandated territories granted to Britain, and to complete a fair share-out of Arab lands with France
  2. Which non-Arab Muslim group, concentrated in N.E. Syria, Northern Iraq and Turkey, failed to influence the Powers to grant them their own state during this period?
    This group was not strong enough to challenge either re-awakened Arab nationalism or growing European imperialism in the new Middle East of the post-war era
  3. What was the name of the treaty signed with Bulgaria?
    Bulgaria paid a heavy price for its alliance with the Central Powers
  4. Hungary (like Austria) lost much territory, leaving a small Magyar-state surrounded by other states possessing large Magyar minorities. Which state to the north inherited a large Hungarian population?
    It was difficult to avoid leaving ethnic minorities separated from the majority, as different races were mixed up - especially in Central and Eastern Europe. Such minorities could de-stabilise the state in which they were forced to live, and arouse resentment in the nearby homeland where they would prefer to be
  5. Austria lost substantial territory to other powers in the settlement. With which state was it forbidden to unite in the 1920 treaty?
    Many Austrians felt that, having lost most of their empire, they should be allowed to merge with a nearby state. Otherwise Austria seemed like a head (the capital Vienna) without a body
  6. Name one province of the former Ottoman Empire, which France obtained through the settlement, to become ruled under a mandate from the League of Nations.
    All of Turkey's non-Ottoman lands were ceded by 1924 to one or other of the victorious powers, to be ruled under a League of Nations mandate or - in a few cases - to become independent states
  7. Which British war hero advised both the British government and Arab leaders, while the peace treaties were being negotiated?
    The Arabs wanted their own states in the areas relinquished by the Turks, but Britain and France had held talks during the War over how best to carve up the Middle East between them. The awareness of large deposits of oil was a powerful motive
  8. Britain received land from Turkey, most of which later became the state of Israel. What was this mandate called from 1920 to 1948?
    The area was largely peopled by Arabs, and Britain was reluctant to let in too many Jews for fear of upsetting this Arab majority. Britain had of course announced in the Balfour Declaration of 1917 that she welcomed the establishment of a home for Jews in the Middle East
  9. Hungary was compelled to give up Transylvania. Which nearby state almost doubled in size when it acquired this province?
    The loss of Transylvania was bitterly felt in Hungary, but its new possessor hardly felt strengthened by its new acquisition
  10. Which Turkish leader spearheaded his country's rejection of the 1920 treaty, and forced the Allies to sign a much more generous settlement three years later?
    The Allies were wary of becoming involved in a further war, and hence they failed to protect the Greek minority in Asia Minor, which was swiftly expelled from Turkish soil. There were also bitter memories of the stout (and successful) defence put up by the Turks at Gallipoli
