The Treaty of Bucharest refers to two agreements during the 20th century. The first, signed in 1913 after the Second Balkan War, resulted in some territorial gains for Serbia, Greece, Bulgaria, and Romania, but left numerous issues unresolved. The second agreement, signed in 1918, ended the military involvement of Romania in World War I following the exit of Bolshevik Russia from the conflict. Romania’s concessions in the Treaty of Bucharest were later overturned by the Treaty of Versailles.
