Rudolf von Sebottendorf, a German occultist, founds the Thule Society. This Munich branch of the Germanenorden is based in part on the teachings of Guido von List about an ancient Germanic cult of Wotan.

In 1919, the Thule society publishes a "scholarly" edition of the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It will become a bestseller and highly influential with German anti-Semitic movements.

In 1919 Rudolf von Sebottendorff (whose real name is Adam Alfred Rudolf Glaue) will help found the German Workers' Party (German: Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, DAP) with Thule Society member Anton Drexler.

The Thule Society will become increasingly political and will be an important influence on the ideology of the German Workers' Party. Rudolf von Sebottendorff will also be the owner of the Völkischer Beobachter when Adolf Hitler buys it in 1921 and transforms it into the official newspaper of the Nazi Party.
