8 rounds.

Many automatic pistols have clips for 8 rounds. That was almost a standart for decades and only recently the high-capacity magazines (15+) became more popular and standart.

Who started that trend and why? Was that the "Luger", again?

Practical high-capacity handguns really got started with the Browning Hi-Power, and it's derived firearms. Belgian HP's because popular with German soldiers. And of course, John Inglis and Co's Hi-Power's armed Candian and British soldiers.

The C96 could hold 10 rounds, as well as it's detachable magazine-style variants, IE the M712 "Schnellfeuer" which could hold 10 or 20 rounds depending on which magazine you used.
