The conservative Fehrenbach cabinet existed from June 25, 1920 to May 4, 1921. Due to the London ultimatum , the cabinet was replaced on May 10, 1921 by the Wirth I cabinet with the participation of the SPD .
It was the first imperial government of the Weimar Republic that did not act on the basis of the Weimar coalition of the SPD , the center and the DDP , as it had lost its majority in the 1920 Reichstag elections , and the first German government to exclude the social democrats since 1918. The center politician Constantin After much hesitation, Fehrenbach took over the position of head of government. He was to be followed by three more Chancellors of the Center Party.
After a year in office, however, there were major political differences of opinion among the coalition center, DDP and DVP on the question of the London ultimatum , which led to the resignation of the cabinet.
