The Social Democratic Party of Germany (German: Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands, SPD) is political party in Germany. It was founded in 1863 and was one of the first Marxist-influenced parties in the world. It was banned under the Anti-Socialist Laws from 1878 to 1890. The party gradually became more social democratic.

The more violently revolutionary Spartacus League (which became the pro-Soviet Communist Party of Germany) split of from the SPD in association with WWI and the German Revolution of 1918–19.
