Regat Germans

Regat Germans or Old Kingdom Germans (German: Regatsdeutsche or Altreichsdeutsche) are an ethnic German group of the eastern and southern parts of Romania. The Regat is land that was part of Romania before the First World War. This territory includes Moldavia, Dobruja, Muntenia, and Oltenia.

The Regat Germans, like all other German groups in Romania, are represented in politics by the Democratic Forum of Germans in Romania (DFDR).

As part of the Nazi-Soviet population transfers and the Heim ins Reich ("Home into the Empire"), Nazi Germany called ethnic Germans abroad to settle the former Polish territories. 77,000 Regat Germans were thus resettled in 1940.
