What peace settlements seemed extremely harsh at the time but are now viewed in a much more positive light?

So far, I could think of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk and the Treaty of Versailles. The B-L Treaty was viewed as being extremely harsh to Russia back in 1918 but the borders that Russia actually ended up getting in 1991 were even worse than those that the B-L Treaty gave it. Likewise, while the Versailles Treaty was viewed as being harsh by many Germans, it was extremely mild in comparison to the post-WWII peace settlement that Germany subsequently endured as a result of it being unwilling to accept the Versailles settlement, starting another war, and ultimately losing this war. For that matter, Italy complained about a mutilated victory after the end of WWI in real life but the peace settlement that it got after WWI was a bit more generous than the peace settlement that it got after the end of WWII--with the expulsion of the Istrian Italians and the loss of Istria, Fiume, and all of Italy's colonies.

Anyway, what other peace settlements qualify for this?

Also, I suppose that Palestine deserves an honorable mention here. The Palestinians (understandably) refused to accept the 80% of Palestine that the Peel Commission peace plan offered them and instead got 40% of Palestine in 1947 that they rejected as well. Nowadays the very most that the Palestinians are actually going to get is 22% of Palestine--though even then the Israeli right-wing might be more pleased if the Palestinians only got around 10% or so of Palestine.
