Accepted Answer

Imperialism was one of the causes of WWI. European nations ruled smaller countries, called colonies, and competed with each other to amass more colonies. Gathering colonies was known as Imperialism. Both France and Britain had many colonies in Africa and Asia. Germany and Italy decided they wanted a colonial empire too. They were jealous of the countries that had other places where they could gather raw materials and cheap labor.
