Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the political system of Karlis Ulmanis’ authoritarian regime. Although Ulmanis himself underlined that his regime on its merits was revolutionary, in fact in most aspects it was a simple authoritarian, even autocratic regime, in which all the power was in the hands of one person – Ulmanis. He was the head of government, the government in turn having usurped the rights of the parliament; he was also the President and the supreme commander of the armed forces
