* The 'German Revolution' of 1918-19 had been very shallow, and the old elites were still firmly entrenched in key positions. * The Social Democrats (and liberals) were held responsible for the defeat in World War 1, and above all, for the armistice of November 1918. * The German Nationalists and the German military, who had been the warmongers, refused to accept any responsibility for their role in embarking on a huge gamble in 1914. * Instead of accepting any responsibility at all, the hardline nationalists peddled all kinds of conspiracy theories, such as the 'stab-in-the-back' legend, and talked of Weimar as a 'Jewish Republic', which of course it was not. * The harsh terms of the Treaty of Versailles. * Fear of Bolshevism.

The expression Weimar Republic is a nickname which only came into use after the republic had collapsed. If you look at stamps issued in 1919-32 you'll find that they say Deutsches Reich. This was a concession to hardline conservatives, who had an absolute horror of the word republic. The republic created in 1918-19 was not in fact 'based on Weimar'. The point is that the National Assembly met in Weimar in 1919 in order to work out a new constitution in peaceful surroundings, away from Berlin.
