In con­se­quence of the Tri­a­non dic­ta­tor­ship Hun­ga­ry lost two thirds of its ter­ri­to­ry, one third of the Hun­gar­i­an nation found itself to be ruled by for­eign pow­er. All of the Hun­gar­i­an gov­ern­ments between the two world wars made efforts to change peace dic­ta­tor­ship. The Hun­gar­i­an gov­ern­ments even had it clear that to this power sup­port­er(s) are nec­es­sary, since there was no hope that the neigh­bours vol­un­tar­i­ly renounce the newly gained ter­ri­to­ries.

In 1921 the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Bu­da­pest and Prague even sit down to the meet­ing table, but did not suc­ceed. Hun­gary’s hopes were even decreased when Czecho­slo­va­ki­a, Yugoslavi­a, and Roma­nia in 1920-21 con­clud­ed an alliance (kis­an­tant). Its goal was to hin­der Hun­ga­ry.
At the begin­ning of the 1920’s it was not pos­si­ble to speak against the Tri­a­non deci­sion. To 1921 the new Euro­pean order became firm, and there were no suc­cess­ful agree­ments with Poland and France. Ist­ván Beth­len, the Prime Min­is­ter admit­ted that the new sit­u­a­tion has to be accept­ed. In that moment Hun­ga­ry was weak, so first­ly it is nec­es­sary to cre­ate a good sit­u­a­tion with­in the coun­try. Only from the sec­ond part of the decade became Hun­ga­ry pro­vide for­eign affairs active­ly. It con­clud­ed an alliance with the unsat­is­fied win­ner of the first world war, with Italy, eco­nom­i­cal­ly strength­ened, and the arti­cle of Lord Rother­mere raised the atten­tion of for­eign coun­tries. Final­ly, Ist­ván Beth­len Prime Min­is­ter in March 1928 in Deb­re­cen, revealed to the pub­lic the prog­ram of the peace revi­sion. Hun­ga­ry became stronger, the Beth­len-­cab­i­net was suc­cess­ful, but in 1929 an eco­nom­ic cri­sis began that sweeps away the gov­ern­ment and at the same time shed light on Europe’s prob­lems mo­re. When the crises end­ed, Adolf Hit­ler appeared in world pol­i­tic­s.
