Early life

In December 1927, he became chairman of the Zentrum group and in this function helped bring about the demise of the third government of Wilhelm Marx He then became Minister of Transport and for the Occupied Territories in the cabinet of Hermann Müller in 1928 During a reshuffle he became Minister of Justice Although he was considered an opponent of Heinrich Brüning, Theodor von Guérard was again appointed Minister of Transport in 1930 under Brüning's chancellorship On the behest of president Paul von Hindenburg, Theodor von Guérard left the government in autumn of 1931[1]
