An international organization initiated by President Woodrow Wilson as part of the Treaty of Versailles, with the vision to "make the world safe for democracy." Eventually, the U.S. failed to take part and the organization became ineffective.

Part of the Treaty of Versailles, this was an international organization that Wilson crusaded for during World War I, as part of his idealistic crusade to "make the world safe for democracy." This international organization was powerless, due in part to the United States' absence. America failed to join when Senator Henry Cabot Lodge objected to the United States relinquishing its sovereignty when it came to declaring war. Whenever a country came under attack within the League, it merely withdrew its membership.

International association of states designed to safeguard world peace, the brainchild of American president Woodrow Wilson. A 'Covenant of the League of Nations' was incorporated into the terms of all of the post-war peace treaties in 1919 and 1920. The League met for the first time in November 1920, but its credibility was seriously undermined by the non-participation of the USA. It held its last meeting in April 1946, before being superseded by the United Nations.
The League of Nations was President Wilson's fourteenth point in his plan for a "peace without victory." He proposed the League as an international peacekeeping organization, and it was incorporated into the 1919 Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I. But questions about League membership caused the U.S. Senate to refuse to ratify the treaty and to reject U.S. membership in the League.
