Hungarian Democratic Republic was an independent republic proclaimed after the collapse of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in 1918.


The Hungarian Democratic Republic was created by revolution that started in Budapest on October 31, 1918. Official proclamation of the republic was on November 16, 1918 and its president became Mihály Károlyi. This event also marked independence of Hungarian state which was ruled by Habsburg Monarchy for several centuries. Another revolution from March 21, 1919 marked the end of the Hungarian Democratic Republic and creation of new republic known as Hungarian Soviet Republic.
