Konstantin Freiherr von Neurath (2 February 1873 – 14 August 1956) was a German diplomat and served as Foreign minister of Germany between 1932 and 1938. Neurath was regarded as playing a key role in the foreign policy pursuits of the Nazi dictator in undermining the Treaty of Versailles and territorial expansion. Neurath also served as "Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia" between 1939 and 1943, though his authority was only nominal after September 1941.
