    Crowd outside goverment buildings in Prague. Some months after the indipendence of Austria from the Double Monarchy, Bohemia followed.
    On the monument members of the Bohemian diet are proclaming the secession from Duoble Monarchy

    LA TRIPLICE: N.3 (Anno X - 11/1953) - LA CADUTA DELL'AQUILA BICIPITE(The fall of doubleheaded eagle)

    25/02/1919:
    Prague was more discontent than Wien, and Czecks were more suffering than Austrians.
    Secretly in contact with Italians (and perhaps with Germans, also if unproved), the administration of Bohemia-Moravia shaken by the hard war they fought (for they Wien Masters, as they said) was shocked to learn that a republic was proclaimed in Wien and that Hungary refused to mobilize to restored the Hapsburgs(Hungary, anyhow, was happy to have Karl as they apostolic king, but because tensions were rising with Italy, was not happy to divert forces from Adriatic theater). so panicked.
    Tomas Masaryk, retuned in 1917 from his exile from England, promptly took the matter in his hands.
    He delivered a speech (although he was not a member of the diet), he undestood that the only possibility for freedom was the incipient caos and forced the diet to agree with him.
    Leaving the costitutional status of Bohemia for the future, the Diet proclaimed the indipence from Wien and deposed Karl as their king.

    People in Troppau main square, around Bohemian official, in fall of 1919.

    When Bohemia proclaimed the independence from the double monarchy, the german speaking minority in Sudetenland felt unprotected and feared for its culture and safety.

    (This, altrough Masaryk promised to protect the rights of the Germans)

    So, in that same year, German delegates to Bohemia Diet met in Troppau.
    Social democrats had a bigger rapresentation, but pangermanic party was close second, along with liberals.
    When Prague asked for obedience, Troppau could not refuse, but neither they wanted accepted the new government.
    The new Bohemia army entered in the city with an armed division, officials dictating conditions in the Main Square, the Sudetenland Parliament took its own decision...to be continued.

    Rudolf Lodgman von Auen was nominated president of the Sudetenland by a majority vote thanks to the support of part of Liberals and Social-democrats.
    Sworn in office, the first act of the government was calling the german Reich to invade Sudetenland to defend the german minority

    The short lived Bohemian Republic border police waits, powerless, for german troops to March in Sudetenland.

    The provisional Sudetenland government asked Germany for intervention.
    The reichstag was, at first doubtful about a military expedition, just because the army was involved against Austria; but a risk of Communist uprising in Prague (at least this was claimed by military secret service in 1919).
    So December 1919, Erich Ludendorf and VIII army, was ordered to take Reichenberg and than to move in Prague.

    Bohemia, freshly indipendent, could not match the power of Germany and Masaryk, become president of the republic, decided to submit, but asked to Berlin guarantees about autonomy of Bohemia and rights of Czechs people.
