Triple Alliance

A secret agreement between Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy initially enacted in 1882, the Triple Alliance provided for mutual support or a neutral stance by the three nations in the event of war with another European power. The Triple Alliance was renewed in 1887, 1902, 1907, and 1912. However, a separate agreement between Italy and neighboring France nullified Italian participation in the Triple Alliance. Italy subsequently entered World War I in 1915 on the side of the Allies.
