Croatia was united with Hungary in 1091 and remained under Hungarian administration until the end of the First World War I. On 1 Dec. 1918 Croatia became a part of the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, which was renamed Yugoslavia in 1929. During the Second World War an independent fascist (Ustaša) state was set up under the aegis of the German occupiers. During the Communist period Croatia became one of the six ‘Socialist Republics’ constituting the Yugoslav federation led by Marshal Tito. With the collapse of Communism, an independence movement gained momentum.
