Pushed by the social democrats, the government passed a widespread amnesty, under which political prisoners like Karl Liebknecht were released. Under Max von Baden, the bureaucracy, military and political leadership of the old Reich began a cooperation with the leaders of the majority parties and with the individual States of the Reich. This cooperation would have a significant impact on later events during the revolution.
In late October, the Imperial constitution was changed, turning the German Empire into a parliamentary system. However, Wilson's third note seemed to imply that negotiations of an armistice would be dependent on the abdication of Wilhelm II. The government of Chancellor Max von Baden now feared that a military collapse and a socialist revolution at home were becoming likelier with every day that went by.
In fact, the government's efforts to secure an armistice were interrupted by the Kiel mutiny which began with events at Wilhelmshaven on 30 October and the outbreak of revolution in Germany in early November. On 1 November, Max wrote to all the ruling Princes of Germany, asking them whether they would approve of an abdication by the Emperor. Maximilian, seriously ill with Spanish influenza , urged Wilhelm II to abdicate. He considered installing Prince Eitel Friedrich , Wilhelm's second son, as regent;  : 76 however, the outbreak of the revolution in Berlin prevented Max from implementing his plan.
Ebert decided that to keep control of the socialist uprising the Emperor must abdicate quickly and a new government was required. Shortly thereafter, Ebert appeared in the Reichskanzlei and demanded that the office of government be handed over to him and the SPD, as that was the only way to keep up law and order. In an unconstitutional move, Max resigned and appointed Ebert as his successor. When Maximilian later visited Ebert to say goodbye before leaving Berlin, Ebert — who urgently wanted to keep up the old order, improving it through parliamentary rule, and head a legitimate, not a revolutionary government — asked him to stay on as regent Reichsverweser.
Maximilian refused and, turning his back on politics for good, departed for Baden. Although events had overtaken him during his tenure at the Reichskanzlei and he was not considered a strong Chancellor, Max is seen today as having played a vital role in enabling the transition from the old regime to a democratic government based on the majority parties and the Reichstag.
This made the government of Ebert that emerged from the November revolution acceptable to some conservative forces in the bureaucracy and military, which was one of Ebert's strongest aims. They were thus willing to ally themselves with him against the more radical demands by the revolutionaries on the far-left.
Maximilian spent the rest of his life in retirement. In , together with Kurt Hahn, he established the Schule Schloss Salem boarding school, which was intended to help educate a new German intellectual elite. He died at Salem on 6 November the following year. The couple had two children: . From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification.
