Deutsches Reich was the official name for the German nation state from 1871 to 1943 in the German language. It translates literally in English to “German Empire”, with a context approximating that of "German Realm". To refer to the entire period, the partially translated “German Reich”, which has no monarchical connotations, is often used, with “German Realm” being a more appropriate direct translation of the official title. Informally, this nation was also known simply as Germany.
There were three periods in the history of the Reich. The first was the German Empire, a monarchy that existed from the unification of Germany in 1871 until the German Revolution of 1918–19. The second was the state commonly called the Weimar Republic, which lasted from 1919 until 1933. The final state called the “German Reich” was Nazi Germany, a fascist dictatorship under Hitler which existed from 1933 until 1945, being renamed “Greater German Reich” in 1943.
