|Abstract:||The German revolution of November 1918 that resulted in the abdication of the Kaiser, was the outgrowth of the weariness and hunger caused by more than four years of war. Equally significant were Kurt Eisner's proclamation of a socialist and separatist Bavarian republic in Munich on 8 November, and the naval mutinies that broke out on 3 November in Kiel, that inspired similar revolutionary uprisings throughout Germany. On 9 November Wilhelm, King of Prussia and Emperor of Germany, abdicated and fled to Holland after being informed by his generals that he no longer enjoyed the support of the armed forces. Earlier that day Imperial Chancellor Prince Max von Baden yielded his office to Friedrich Ebert. Ebert was the head of the Majority Socialists, or Social Democratic Party (Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands, or SPD) , which since 1912 was the largest party in the Reichstag.|
