The Imperial Liberal Party (German: Liberale Reichspartei) was a political party in Germany during the 1870s.

History[edit]

The party contested the first elections in newly unfied Germany in 1871, winning 30 seats.[1] The 1874 elections saw the party's vote share fall from 7% to just 1% as it won only three seats. The party did not contest any further elections.[2]
