The Russian Empire acquired the Baltic areas as autonomous Duchies administered by Baltic German nobility via the Treaty of Nystad in 1721 and Courland in 1795.[1] In 1914, World War I broke out and by 1915 German armies had occupied Lithuania and Courlandincorporating the areas into Ober Ost.[2] As the Russian Empire began to collapse, independence movements sprung up on many regions. After the 1917 October Revolution in Russia, Baltic political leaders attempted to establish the independent states of EstoniaLatvia and Lithuania; however, German control continued throughout the area until early 1918. Later in 1918, the area was drawn into the Russian Civil War and proclamations of independence were issued in Lithuania on 16 February, in Estonia on 24 February and in Latvia on 18 November 1918.[3]

Between years of 1918-1920, the bolsheviks tried to establish Soviet republics in the Baltic area. In November 1918 the Red Armyconquested Narva. They proclaimed the Commune of the Working People of Estonia, but it was able to function only for six weeks.[4] In December, the Latvian communists controlled Riga and proclaimed the Latvian Socialist Soviet Republic. In May 1919, the communist control ended when the city was taken by combined German, Latvian and White Russian troops.[5]

By 1920, German troops had withdrawn and the Russian Civil War was in its final phase. Consequently, the Baltic states signed peace treaties with Soviet Russia. Estonia signed the Treaty of Tartu on 2 February, Lithuania signed the Soviet-Lithuanian Peace Treaty on 12 July and Latvia signed the Latvian-Soviet Peace Treaty on 15 August 1920.[3] In 1920, all three Baltic states adopted constitutions including universal suffrage, a multi-party system and parliamentary with a president. However, the communists were prohibited from participation in politics.[5]
