- The League of Nations Union was formed on October 13, 1918 by the joining of the League of Nations Society with the Free Nations Society. The League of Nations Society began in 1916 with the purpose of examining the forms of international organization that would be possible at the end of WWI. It lobbied for an agreement among countries that would serve as a basis for permanent peace by providing for settlement of disputes, mutual defense, and the observance of international treaties. The influence of the LoNU waned during WWII, and in 1946 it merged into the already formed United Nations Association of Great Britain. Previously the League of Nations Union had been a member of the International Federation of League of Nations Societies, which had its headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
