The central powers during WW I were Germany, Austria-Hungary,

Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire (aka turkey). They started from

the Triple Alliance comprised of Germany, Austria-HUngary, and

Italy, but Italy dropped out.

In world war 1 the central powers were Germany, Austria-Hungary and

the Ottoman empire. Italy was part of that alliance but because it

switched sides before the name changed from the triple alliance to

the central powers it is generally not considered a central

power.
