Germany was never a colony. In fact, it was a European power after unification. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Germany was divided into hundreds of small states, each under the Holy Roman Empire. Prussia was the most successful and largest German state. In the mid to late 1800s, historians credit Otto Von Bismarck with unifying the states into a single country, Germany. Their militaristic and naval pride contributed to a European arms race and led to World War I. After unification, Germany's economy was so successful that they were competent rivals to the British, who have always been a leading European power, and the Europeans feared Germany's increasing might.

I don't quite understand your question. I am unsure if you are asking about how long East and West Germany was under Allied control after World War II. If you are, I'll answer this too. After WWII in 1945, the Allies divided Germany into an East and West Germany, the communist East being controlled by the Soviet Union and the democratic West being split between the United States, Britain, and France. As well as Germany, Berlin was also divided into East and West Berlin. Germany wasn't entirely unified again until 1989-1990, when leaders realized nothing good was happening as a result of German separation.
