Answer :

Frankfurt Parliament


In 1848, Germany was a divided country with different provinces like Australia and Prussia. In February 1848, when a rebellion took place in Paris King Louis Philippe was forced to ran away and joined other monarchs to oppose the elected assembly. The German middle class decided to vote for an all - German National Assembly and hence came to Frankfurt. It was attended by 831 people. The parliament was convened on 18th May 1848 in St. Paul church. Friedrich Wilhelm IV was elected as the president but it turned out to be futile due to lack of experience of the deputies. The assembly decided that the German nation would be a monarchy controlled by Parliament. Instead of setting up a central power in German people. However, the assembly continued its work and completed a Constitution. The parliament faced strong opposition from aristocracy and military. In the end monarchy and military combined together with the aristocracy, they won over the liberal nationalist middle class and the assembly was forced to disband. Frankfurt Parliament is famous as a failure of liberalism and victory of the monarchy.
