The Kingdom of Hungary was a nation that emerged following the end of World War I out of the collapsed Austria-Hungary. During this time, the country was under the authoritarian rule of Regent Miklos Horthy, who officially represented the Hungarian monarchy, which would never actually return to power. Originally considered a client state to the German Empire, the Hungarians would ally themselves with France during World War II. When the war turned against France, Hungary considered leaving the war, resulting in France overthrowing Horthy and installing a devoirist one-party state under László Baky. Baky immediately began committing genocide against Hungary's Jewish population, murdering nearly 100,000 Jews in less than year. The Kingdom would come to an end with the Russian occupation of Hungary, the dissolution of the monarchy, and the creation of a Hungarian People's Republic.
