Germany – a country with an ancient history
This state received its name in the distant times of the existence of the Roman Empire, and means the name of the tribe. The inhabitants of this tribe “Germans” lived beyond the Rhine valley. This people has been known since the development of Ancient Greece. Only a little later the word “Germans” began to appear in the documents of Ancient Rome. History tells that after the fall of Rome, the state of the Franks was revived. King Charlemagne, who was in power in the ninth century, created a new power, but its existence was very short-lived. Later, the emperor’s grandchildren divided these lands into three countries, as a result of which the territory of the eastern Germanic tribes became Germany.
A lot of historical events around the world are associated with this state. Germany, due to its long history of existence, has almost always been a conquering country. At the beginning of the 19th century, during the Napoleonic Wars, the German Confederation was created, later it collapsed. At the end of the 19th century, culture, science and philosophy flourished in Germany, it became a great power in Europe.
Germany played a major role in unleashing the two world wars, which led to huge consequences and losses. After the defeat in the Second World War, the country was divided into two parts: the FRG and the GDR. And only forty-five years later, it reunited.
