While the Frankish Realm was primarily inhabited by Germanic tribes like the Franks and the Saxons, the regions east of the border rivers were inhabited by Slavic tribes.This is why most of the cities and villages in northeastern Germany bear Slavic-derived names (Germania Slavica).The neighborhood of Moabit bears a French-derived name, and Französisch Buchholz is named after the Huguenots.The first written records of towns in the area of present-day Berlin date from the late 12th century.At the end of the First World War in 1918, a republic was proclaimed by Philipp Scheidemann at the Reichstag building.In 1920, the Greater Berlin Act incorporated dozens of suburban cities, villages and estates around Berlin into an expanded city.
