Paris Peace Conference
The Paris Peace Conference was the meeting that took place in Paris, 1919 in order for the Allies to set the peace terms with Germany. More than thirty countries sent diplomats to the conference. They discussed several possibilities for reshaping Europe and which harsh penalties to impose upon Germany. The conference was led by the "Big Four": Woodrow Wilson, Prime Minister David Lloyd George of Britain , Vittorio Emanuele Orlando, Prime Minister of Italy and Georges Clemenceau of France. They spent six months in Paris drawing up the Treaty of Versailles, which included the War Guilt Clause that outlined the amount of money Germany and its allies should pay for civilian damages. The decision to formulate the League of Nations was also decided at the conference.
