List of countries by date of transition to republican system of government

This is a list of European and Asian countries by date of their last transition from a monarchy to a republican form of government. There were two periods in recent history when most such transitions took place:
* during or within five years after the First World War (1914-1923) – marked in green;
* during or within five years after the Second World War (1940-1950) – marked in pink.
San Marino, often called "the world's oldest republic", is an exception as it was a republic from its inception. Some of the countries on this list were part of larger, now extinct, states (such as the Russian Empire or Yugoslavia) when the transition to a republic took place. Countries where non-republican forms of government (such monarchy, theocracy etc.) persist are not included in this list. Some were also former Commonwealth Realms.
