A reich ( /ˈraɪx/; ) is one of the three major German empires that have existed, particularly Nazi Germany. The First Reich was the Holy Roman Empire, which lasted from the 10th century until 1806. The Second Reich was the Hohenzollern Empire, which lasted from 1871 to 1918. The Third Reich was Nazi Germany, which lasted from 1933 to 1945. The concept of the three major reichs was important in Nazi ideology as part of the general premise that the German people were destined for greatness.
