The Treaty of Trianon is the peace treaty formed at the end of World War I by the Allies of World War I on one side, and Hungary, on the other.[1][2][3][4]

The treaty was written because Hungary because it was made from Austria-Hungary, thus had been an enemy of the Allies, and it had lost World War I, so it was punished.

Hungary lost a lot of its land[5] to neighbouring countries, such as Romania, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. Hungary was partitioned, lost two thirds of her territory, and lost one-third of her Hungarian population. There was no referendum.
