The following page provides a list of territorial acquisitions by the powers of extra-galactic civilization, including the Laurasian Empire, during the eighteenth century (1701-1800). A comprehensive list of all wars and military conflicts waged by, and among, the various powers, will eventually be listed as well, with every decade's military conflicts covered. The Laurasian Empire leads in the terms of territory acquired (well over thirty million star systems across more than 75,000 light years of civilized territory) and in the number of new subjects acquired (well over forty quadrillion).

Wars of the Eighteenth CenturyEdit

The First Half of the Century (1701-1750)Edit

1701-1710Edit

  • The Second Neapolitan War (1699-1704)
    • Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Electorate of Hanover, Stellar Kingdom of Portugallia vs. the Kingdom of Naparia and the Holy Spamalkan Empire.
    • Result: The Duchy of Milania, conquered by Franconian forces (1700), remains in the possession of the Serene Kingdom of Franconia, while the Holy Spamalkan Empire's hold over the Kingdom of Naparia (by Emperor Fe'ro II) is maintained. The Oliveres Region continues to remain in Spamalkan possession, with minor border rectifications made: moreover, the colonies of Sao Paulo and Brasilla are conceded to the Holy Spamalkan Empire.
  • Third Dejanican-Masacavanian War (1701-1703)
    • The Grand Duchy of Masacavania vs. the Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Dejanican Duchy of Northania and Semigallia, the Grand Principality of Smolensk, the Theocratic Republic of Ryazan, the United Confederacy of Oszol and Pskov, and the Great Breffal Federation.
    • Result: The Grand Duchy under Ivan III the Great acquires Stardoub and Briansk in the Crone Galaxy; is acknowledged as overlord of Rzhev, the Alphenian Colonies, and Ryazan; and obtains the succession privileges to the Principality of Bielograd.
  • Eighth Laurasian-Vectorian War (1702-1705)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Vectorian Empire
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire obtains a decisive victory over its Vectorian rivals, and obtains control of Rhedita, Nagai, Sassi-ruuk, Tashia, the Gate Solarian Cluster, and parts of Arachosia Suprema, including the Amelianian Colonies of Kthexox and Nordania.
  • The Kuruc War of Hungary (1703-1711)
    • Holy Austarlian Empire, Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Haxonian Confederacy, and Electorate of Saxony vs. the Kuruc Rebel Confederation of Hungary, the Marasharite Empire, the Danubian Principalities, and the Haynsian Despotate.
    • Result: Hungary was restored to its allegiance towards the Holy Austarlian Empire in 1711, following eight years of outright rebellion. This conflict, occurring concurrently with the Italianian Wars, the Dejanican Expeditionary War, etc., resulted in the direct annexation of the Principality of Transylvania by the Holy Austarlian Empire; Marasharite concessions in Morea, the Ionian Provinces, and Epirus to the Haxonian Confederacy; and border adjustments between Transylvania and the Danubian Principalities, particularly in the Upper Peldavian Gateways region.
  • The Bavarian Rebellion (1705-1706)
    • Holy Austarlian Empire, Autocratic Pruthian Empire, and Electorate of Saxony vs. the Electorate of Bavaria, the Grand Duchy of Wurttemberg, and the Serene Kingdom of Franconia.
    • Result: The Bavarian Rebellion was crushed, Austarlia and Pruthia each made territorial acquisitions at the expense of the Germanian Principalities, and the succession of Maximilian II Emmanuel, who remained dependent towards the Holy Austarlian Empire, was assured.
  • Dejanican Expeditionary War (1706-1708)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth and its dependents.
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire's possession of Karakorum, the Galactic Frontier Route, and the Dejanican Borderland Territories was reaffirmed by the Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth; all Dejanican expeditions into the Wild Marshes were to cease; and Laurasian merchants gained transit privileges in Dejanican territories. The succeeding years would see the Laurasian Empire gain ever more influence in Dejanican affairs.
  • War of the League of Cambrai (1708-1709)
    • Holy Austarlian Empire, Grand Duchy of Tuscany, Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Kingdom of Naparia), and Serene Kingdom of Franconia (with Milania and Florence) vs Haxonian Confederacy, Electorate of Hanover, and Vendragian Confederacy.
    • Result: Padua was retained by the Haxonian Confederacy, but its territorial ambitions in the Vatican Circles, Urbano, Mantua, and Florence were curbed. The Holy Austarlian Empire became the formal protector of the Circles, Urbani, and Anti, territories it would formally annex in 1714. The Vendragian Confederacy, however, acquired Heligoland, Outer Schanffesigen, and the Faroe Islands; the Electorate of Hanover's incorporation of Celle was confirmed.

1711-1720Edit

  • Ninth Vectorian War (1710-1711)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Vectorian Empire.
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire completes the conquest of Vectoria, annexing Vector Prime and the Galactic Barrier regions.
  • Third Italianian War (Second Laurasian-Franconian War and First Laurasian-Marasharite War of the century, 1710-1716)
    • Holy Austarlian Empire, Grand Duchy of Tuscany, Haxonian Confederacy (to 1713), Vendragian Confederacy, Electorate of Hanover, Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Naparia), Laurasian Empire (after 1711), Duchy of Milania (1712-15), and Autocratic Pruthian Empire vs. Serene Kingdom of Franconia (with Milania to 1712, after 1715), Electorate of Saxony, Marasharite Empire (1714-16), Celestial Kingdom of Scottria (1713-14), Serene Kingdom of Portugallia, Haxonian Confederacy (1713-16), Principality of Holstein-Gottorp, Duchy of Savoy, and Duchy of Ferrara.
    • Result: The Duchies of Milania and Parma are conceded once again to the Serene Kingdom of Franconia; the Haxonian Confederacy acquires the Upper Bologna and the Duchy of Lesser Piacenza, besides receiving confirmation of its title to Cyprus, Rhodes, and Upper Lebanon from the Marasharites. Modena is returned to the Duchy of Ferrara. The Vendragian Confederacy acquires Franconian Nova Scotia, the Hudson Bay Outposts, the Icevergian Barrier Regions, and the Upper Baharmian Provinces, thereby extending its colonial base in the Crone Galaxy. The Laurasian Empire acquires Carly, Kia, Billy Gasis, and Pelaski, along with confirmation of its hold over Natalia, Tiona, and other Galactic Frontier Route strongholds. Furthermore, as a result of the concurrent war with Scottria, Laurasia acquires the Rogerian Cluster, the Homi Provinces, and Western Hypasia. Spamalka retains control of Naparia and further acquires the Sicilian Wayward Colonies. Austarlia's acquisition of the Vatican Circles, Urbani, and Anti is confirmed; it also acquires Malines, Issenburg, and Saarbrucken, thereby strengthening its base in Austarlian Burgundy. Austarlia would annex Wurttemberg the following year, following a revolt by Duke Albrecht IV. The Pruthian Empire acquires the Archmandrite of Padenborn, the Duchy of Westphalia, Upper Guelders, and other territories in the Westphalian Regions. Orange and the Free County of Burgundy are confirmed to be in Franconian possession; the Princes of Orange nevertheless retain their title. Savoy gains the Principality of Monferrato.
  • Marasharite-Austarlian War (1716-1718)
    • Marasharite Empire, Haynsian Despotate, Danubian Principalities vs. Holy Austarlian Empire.
    • Result: The Marasharites and Austarlians continued at war following the conclusion of the War of the League of Cambrai. As a result of this conflict, the Holy Austarlian Empire acquires the Banat of Temesvar, Olthenia, Banja Luka, and Upper Serbia, including Belgrade.

1721-1730Edit

  • Fourth Italianian War (Third Laurasian-Franconian War and Second Laurasian-Marasharite War, 1721-1725)
    • Laurasian Empire (to 1725), Holy Spamalkan Empire, Holy Austarlian Empire, Duchy of Savoy, and Grand Duchy of Tuscany vs. Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Marasharite Empire and Haynsian Despotate (1723-25), Haxonian Confederacy.
    • Result: The Duchy of Milania was reconquered by the Holy Spamalkan Empire (1721), and conferred by Emperor Char'va upon Francesco Sforza. Franjak I's attempt to recover Milania and to conquer Savoy is blunted in the Battle of Pathia (1725), resulting in Franjak's capture by Emperor Char'va and a major defeat for the invading Franconian forces. This compounded earlier Franconian losses to the forces of Spamalka and Austarlia in Ducal Burgundy, Andorra, Navarre, Franche-Comte, and the Alpian Provinces. At the same time, the Marasharite Empire's intervention into the military conflict proved to have no benefit, and its friction with its long-time Haxonian adversaries, particularly over demands for the return of Rhodes, hampered the alliance. The status quo ante bellum persisted in the Balkan Regions, in the Franconian Royal Realms, and in the Caladarian Galaxy; however, the Holy Austarlian Empire gained the Lower Tyrol, Parma, and Baden thanks to its alliance with Spamalka. In the Treaty of Pathia (March 1725), Fransios abandoned all claims in Italiania, Burgundy, and Flanders. He also conceded Rotterdam, Gascony, Niewpoort, Passchendale, Ypres, and the Roosevelt Barrier to the Holy Spamalkan Empire.
  • War of the League of Cognac (1726-1730)
    • Holy Austarlian Empire, Holy Spamalkan Empire, and the Duchy of Savoy vs the Serene Kingdom of Franconia, the Haxonian Confederacy, the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, the Duchy of Milania, the Vendragian Confederacy, the Serene Kingdom of Portugallia, and the Autocratic Pruthian Empire.
    • Result: Emperor Char'va I gained decisive victories in the Vatican Patrimonies, Modena, Florence, Genoa, and in Milania against his Franconian and Italianian foes. As a result of this conflict, Florence became a protectorate of the Holy Spamalkan Empire; the Vatican Circles were confirmed to be in Austarlian possession; and Haxonia conceded Trescio to the Duchy of Milania, which was once again aligned to Spamalka and Austarlia. Franjak I of Franconia once again acknowledged the concession of the Barrier Provinces, Western Flanders, and parts of Artois to the Holy Spamalkan Empire, but acquired Bougey and Baurge. Genoa was annexed by the Duchy of Savoy, which was now definitively in the Spamalkan camp. Vendragia, on its part, acquired Upper Alabama, Savannah, and the Tennessee, thereby consolidating its hold over the Carolinas. Pruthia was compensated by all parties with the concession of Berg, Julich, Austarlian Saxony, Zwickau, Schwarzburg, and Hennenburg; furthermore, the Austarlian Pragmatic Sanction was acknowledged by the warring parties. Finally, Portugallia conceded San Antes, the Lower Canaries, and Soni in Guinea to the Holy Spamalkan Empire.

1731-1740Edit

  • Second Lebrantine War (1730-1732)
    • Marasharite Empire, Barbary States, and Haynsian Despotate vs. Haxonian Confederacy, Vendragian Confederacy, Knights of the Order of Malta, and Serene Kingdom of Portugallia.
    • Result: The Haxonian Confederacy acquired Beirut, the Golan Heights, and the Armenian Yiddi Colonies, but agreed to the restoration of Rhodes, Chios, and the eastern regions of the Peldavian Gateways to the Marasharite Empire. Vendragia acquired Marasharite Funjia and the Sharifate of Yemen, thereby consolidating its hold of Aden, Somailand, and Lower Ethiopia. The Knights of the Orders of Malta gained navigation privileges through the Tunis Straits; Portugallia acquired the Gambia Colonies from the Barbary State of Mauritania.
  • War of the Dejanican Succession (1733-1735)
    • Laurasian Empire, Holy Austarlian Empire, Autocratic Pruthian Empire, and Vorrian Party vs. Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Haxonian Confederacy, and the Party of Stanis Vorrust I.
    • Result: Vorrus II is installed on the throne of the Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth, as an "ally" of the Laurasian Empire and its fellow interventionist powers. The right of Laurasian troops and ships to transit through Dejanican territory is confirmed; furthermore, the Golden Liberties of the Dejanican nobility were upheld. Stanis Vorrust I was now permitted to retire to Franconia, and was given the Duchy of Lorraine, a Franconian protectorate (on the condition that Lorraine would revert to Franconia upon his death). The Austarlian Pragmatic Sanction was acknowledged by the powers involved, while Rimini, Basel, and Pflasz-Sulbuch were confirmed to be in the possession of the Holy Austarlian Empire. Furthermore, the Lorrainian Prince Fransios was to become Grand Duke of Tuscany, upon the death of the last ruler of the Medici dynasty. Finally, Franconia's rights of succession to Monaco and Bar were recognized.
  • Third Laurasian-Marasharite War (1735-39)
    • Laurasian Empire, Holy Austarlian Empire (1737-39) vs. Marasharite Empire, Haynsian Despotate, and Barbary States.
    • Result: Laurasia acquired the Tof Borderlands, Donna, Billy, and Latrice, thereby adjusting the boundary in the Galactic Borderlands to its favor. Austarlia, however, conceded the Pazak Cluster, Olthenia, Upper Serbia, the Banat of Temesvar, and Banja Luka to the Marasharite Empire, thereby returning its gains of 1718.
  • Sixth Italianian War (1736-38)
    • Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Naparia and the Durthian Duchies), Duchy of Milania, and Duchy of Savoy vs Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Barbary States, and Knights of the Order of Malta.
    • Result: Franconian rights to Bar and Monaco recognized by the Holy Spamalkan Empire; Northern Artois returned to Franconian authority. Turin and parts of the Lower Piombino are conceded to the Serene Kingdom of Franconia (by Duchy of Savoy). However, the Holy Spamalkan Empire's hold over Minorca, Gibraltar, and Ceuta was affirmed; Genoa was now confirmed to be in Spamalkan possession. Spamalkan influence over Savoy increased substantially. Border rectifications made in Navarre, with Pamplona becoming part of the Holy Spamalkan Empire.
  • War of the Carolinas and Floriana (1737-40)
    • Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Naparia, Colonial Territories, and Durthia) vs. the Vendragian Confederacy, Serene Kingdom of Portugallia.
    • Result: The status quo ante bellum is observed in Floriana and the Carolinas; Sao Paulo returned to the Serene Kingdom of Portugallia.

1741-1750Edit

  • War of the Austarlian Succession (concurrent with the Scottrian War of the Rough Wooing and the Seventh Italianian War, 1740-48)
    • Holy Spamalkan Empire, Holy Austarlian Empire, Grand Duchy of Tuscany, Duchy of Milania, Vendragian Confederacy, Electorate of Saxony vs. Autocratic Pruthian Empire, Electorate of Bavaria, Haxonian Confederacy, Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Marasharite Empire (with dependents).
    • Result: The Autocratic Pruthian Empire, under the direction of Pru'a IX the Great, acquires the Austarlian Duchies of Silania, the County of East Frisia, and the Landgravate of Schiewbus. However, all parties acknowledge Mar'va Tarvania as Empress of Austarlia, and her husband, Fransios I, is confirmed as her co-ruler and consort. The Marasharite Empire retains hold of the territories recovered from Austarlia in 1739 (the Treaty of Belgrade), but concedes Galatia and Pisidia to the Haxonian Confederacy and Upper Nubia to the Vendragian Confederacy; the Avores Star Cluster is recognized to be in the Holy Spamalkan Empire's possession. As regards to the Italianian territories, Emperor Char'va finally annexed Savoy and Milania directly into the Holy Spamalkan Empire, naming himself Duke of those territories, a hold strengthened through the acquisition of Parma from Austarlia (1745); the Spamalkan hold over Naparia continued; and Franconia retained Monaco and Bar, though compelled to return Turin.
  • War of the Rough Wooing (Fourth Franconian War, 1741-43, 1743-1746, 1747-1750)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Celestial Kingdom of Scottria and Serene Kingdom of Franconia.
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire, through the Treaties of Christiania (1743), Kinsgley (1746), and Boulougone (1750), acquired all remaining Scottrian territories in the Caladarian Galaxy proper, encompassing the Kalbachan, Rasdallan, and Canian Provinces, with all of their star systems. Scottria, however, becomes aligned to the Serene Kingdom of Franconia, with the new Queen of Scottria, Mariana I, being engaged to Franconian Dauphin Franjak and sent to live at the Court of Parri. Laurasia also gained temporary hold of Boulougone (1746-50), its first ever-territory in the Amulak Spiral, as surety for its cessation of hostilities with Franconia and recognition of the dynastic arrangements.

The Second Half of the Century (1750-1800)Edit

1751-1760Edit

  • First Arabian War (1750-1753)
    • Vendragian Confederacy, Haxonian Confederacy, Serene Kingdom of Portugallia, Knights of the Order of Malta vs. Marasharite Empire, Barbary States, Haynsian Despotate.
    • Result: Oman and Qatar were conceded to the Vendragian Confederacy; the Emirate of Kuwait, previously a protectorate of the Marasharite Empire, was aligned to the Serene Kingdom of Portugallia and the Haxonian Confederacy. Furthermore, Haxonia gained the right to garrison its consuls and troops in Mecca, Medina, and Riyadh, thereby gaining extensive economic influence over the Sherifates of Arabia. The Knights of the Order of Malta were permitted to establish a diplomatic garrison at Cyrene, and their protectorship of the Upper Marauders of Mali was recognized.
  • Seventh Italianian War (concurrent with the Seven Year's War, Didymeian War of Franconia, 1751-1756, 1757-1759)
  • Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Milania and Naparia), Laurasian Empire (1757-59) vs. Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Haxonian Confederacy (Austarlia was neutral in this theater of conflict).
    • Result: The Treaty of Cateau-Cambriesis (1759) finally brought an end to the long hostilities in the Italianian Provinces among Spamalka, Franconia, Haxonia, and Austarlia with their various allies and vassals. As a result of this treaty, Franconia acquired the Metzian Lordships, the Pale of Calais, Artois, Nice, Chambrian Savoy, Rousillon, and Saluzzo, but abandoned all claims to Milania, Naparia, Flanders, Andorra, Franche-Comte, and Spamalkan Navarre. The possession of those territories by the Holy Spamalkan Empire was confirmed. The Laurasian Empire was compensated for its involvement in the conflict; Mantua was conceded to the Holy Austarlian Empire, as compensation for its failures against Pruthia; and Trescio was regained by the Haxonian Confederacy. As regards to colonial claims, Spamalkan hold of Portobello, the Guatemalan Sector, and the Lesser Antilles was affirmed; Franconia, on its part, conceded its interests in Baja California, the Angelus Region, and the Arizona Straits to the Holy Spamalkan Empire.
  • Seven Year's War (concurrent with Seventh Italianian War 1756-1763)
    • Holy Austarlian Empire, Electorate of Saxony, Electorate of Bavaria, Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Haxonian Confederacy vs. Autocratic Pruthian Empire and Vendragian Confederacy.
    • Result: The Autocratic Pruthian Empire retained its hold of the Duchies of Silania, and acquired both Juterbog and Fleda. The Holy Austarlian Empire, as previously mentioned, gained Mantua in the Italianian States. The Vendragian Confederacy acquired Upper Orleans, the St. Louis Colonies, the Ohio Regions, and Inner Canada, thereby greatly extending its base in the Crone Galaxy. Bavaria and Saxony both retained their independence as dependents of the Holy Austarlian Empire.
  • Queen Mariana's War (1759-1760)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Celestial Kingdom of Scottria, Serene Kingdom of Franconia.
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire managed to successfully overthrow Franconian influence over Scottrian affairs, and to support the interests of the Lords of the Congregation, opposed to the regency of Mariana of Guise. All Franconian troops and officials from Scottrian territory were withdrawn, and the Empress of Laurasia became protector of the Scottrian nobility, and of its interests. The boundary in the Galactic Void was adjusted to the favor of the Laurasian Empire.

1761-1770Edit

  • Marianian Civil War (1767-1773)
    • Laurasian Empire, Celestial Kingdom of Scottria vs. Marianian Confederation.
    • Result: Mariana I of Scottria was deposed from her throne by the Earl of Moray and his noble allies in June 1767; in May 1768, she fled to the Laurasian Empire, becoming a prisoner of her cousin, Empress Aurelia. Scottrian nobles such as the Earls of Huntly and Arran, threw their support to Queen Mariana, and engaged in a vigorous war with Moray, and his successors, Mar and Morton, to restore her to the Scottrian throne. Laurasian intervention, especially in 1772-1773, ultimately secured the victory for the Earl of Morton and for the government of Mariana's son and successor, Jamsius VI. The stage was set for Scottria's fall to the Laurasian Empire at the end of the 1770s.
  • Second Huguenot War (1767-1770)
    • Serene Kingdom of Franconia, Electorate of Bavaria vs. Spamalkan Durthian Duchies, Huguenot Confederation of Franconia, Vendragian Confederacy (with Hanover).
    • In spite of certain reverses suffered by the Huguenot Confederation, including the death of the Prince de Conti (1769), and the failure of Durthian forces under Prince William of Orange (who had not yet formally erupted into rebellion against the Holy Spamalkan Empire), to provide effective support in Artois, the Ardennian Worlds, and Picardy, the Second Huguenot War was ended by the Treaty of Saint-German-en-Laye. This treaty confirmed religious toleration privileges for the Huguenots, and granted them the ability to hold public offices and to garrison certain strongholds in Gascony, Provence, and Aquitaine. Furthermore, the Franconian Crown's acquisition of Lorraine and Corisca was recognized by all powers involved, in exchange for the concession, to the Vendragian Electorate of Hanover, of the Free System of Bremen and the County of Waldeck.
  • Morisco War of Grenada (First Cyprian War, 1768-1771)
    • Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Naparia and Milania), Haxonian Confederacy, Knights of the Orders of Malta vs Marasharite Empire, Barbary States, and the Moriscos of Grenada.
    • Result: The Morisco Rebellion was crushed, and a comprehensive policy of resettlement and colonization in those territories was adopted by the Holy Spamalkan Government. Furthermore, the Battle of Lepanto (1771), secured Spamalkan commercial lanes around Naparia; ended the threat posed by Marasharite forces to the Haxonian Morea and Cyprus; and allowed for the Holy Spamalkan Empire to seize the colony of Fez. As a result of the Treaty of Della el Rondo, the Haxonian Confederacy acquired Inner Epirus, the Nebula of Preithon, and Olympia, thereby extending its base in Morea and in the Dalmatian Provinces. Ragusa signed a treaty of commerce and amity with the Haxonian Confederacy. Furthermore, the Barbary States agreed to terminate all raiding expeditions against Naparia, the Sardinian Worlds, the Balearics, Gibraltar, Andalusia, Valencia, Ceuta, and Mellila.
  • War of the Bar Confederation (1768-1772)
    • Laurasian Empire, Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth vs. Bar Confederation of Dejanica (with financial and moral aid from Franconia and Austarlia).
    • Result: The Bar Confederation arose in February 1768, following the election of Stanis Vorrust I (1764) on the initiative of the Laurasian Empress Aurelia, and the Repanian Diets of 1766-68, by which the Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth had been forced to grant religious toleration privileges to all sects within its territory, and to acknowledge the protectorship of the Laurasian Empire. The Bar Confederates, with financial and mercenary subsidies from Franconia and Austarlia, sought to obstruct Laurasian influence in the Commonwealth's territories. General Casimir Pulaskia actually lead them to a series of victories over Laurasian and loyalist Dejanican forces. Ultimately, however, the Empire's military forces prevailed, and the Confederation was suppressed. The ultimate result was the First Partition of Dejanica (1772-1773), by which Dejanican Lavella was acquired by the Laurasian Empire; Royal Pruthia, Kuayvia, and Netze by Pruthia; and most of Galicia-Lodomeria by the Holy Austarlian Empire. Dejanica saw further constitutional and military restrictions imposed on it by its Laurasian "protectors" in 1775.
  • Fourth Laurasian-Marasharite War (concurrent with the Morisco War of Grenada, 1768-1774)
    • Laurasian Empire, Grecian Confederates vs. Marasharite Empire, Haynsian Despotate, and Danubian Principalities.
    • Result: This war resulted in decisive victories for the Laurasian Empire in the Galactic Borderlands, Great Tesmanian Cloud, and Angelina Spiral against the Marasharites and their Haynsian vassals. The Battles of Riababia Mogila, Imegina, Khotyn, Larga, Kagul, Chesma, Turutkai, and Kolzuduzha all flipped the balance of power to the favor of the Laurasian Empire. The Treaty of Kuchuk Kaynarca (1774) witnessed substantial gains for the Laurasian Empire. All Marasharite territories in the Galactic Borderlands were gained by Laurasia; the Haynsian Slave Highway and Perekop Reaches were also transferred to Laurasian jurisdiction. The Haynsian Despotate became fully independent (but in reality a allied state of the Laurasian Empire); the Marasharites granted extensive commercial, religious, and transit rights to the Imperial Laurasian Government in its territories; and agreed to pay a substantial financial compensation. The decade and a half following the conclusion of Kuchuk Kaynarca would see the Laurasian Empire's interventions in the Haynsian Despotate, culminating in the final annexation of that state (1783).

1771-1780Edit

  • Durthian Rebellion (1772-1787)
    • Holy Spamalkan Empire, Serene Kingdom of Portugallia (after 1780) vs. Serene Kingdom of Franconia (1782-83), United Durthian States, Laurasian Empire (after 1785).
    • Result: The Durthian Duchies of Holland, Zeeland, and Utrecht, provoked by the autocratic governmental policies of the Holy Spamalkan Emperor Philicus I, and by his suppression of their religious and self-government privileges, erupted in revolt under the leadership of Prince William of Orange in March 1772. By 1775, Prince William had been acknowledged by the northern Durthian Duchies as Stadholder and Protector of the Duchies; it was not until 1781 before the Durthian States-General formally abjured the authority of the Holy Spamalkan Empire. The rebellion at first saw great success, and by 1777, much of Brabant and Flanders had come into rebel hands. Emperor Philicus then appointed, in succession, two commanders who reversed that state of affairs: Don John of Austarlia (1747-1778), his illegitimate half-brother, and Alessandro Farnese, Duke of Parma (1745-1792). By 1785, Brabant and Flanders were once again securely in the hands of the Holy Spamalkan Empire. The intervention by the Franconian Duke of Anjou (1781-83) proved to have no result, and by the middle of that decade, it seemed that the Rebellion was in danger. In September 1785, however, the Laurasian Empire of Aurelia I, which had been engaged in negotiations with the Durthians for years, and had condemned Spamalkan actions by the declaration of February 28, 1780, signed the Treaty of Nonsuchia with the United Durthian States, thereby offering them military and financial aid. The Earl of Leicesterius and Durthian Prince Maurice of Nassau managed to stabilize the front lines, but it was not until 1787 before Laurasia and Spamalka entered a formal state of war.
  • Third Huguenot War (1772-1773)
    • Huguenot Confederation of Franconia vs. Serene Kingdom of Franconia.
    • Result: The assassination of Admiral Coligny sparked St. Bartholemy's Day Massacre (August-September 1772), which resulted in the renewal of tensions between the Huguenot Confederation and the Serene Kingdom of Franconia. The renewed conflict raged throughout Normandy, Anjou, Aquitaine, the Parri Region, and Brittany until the Edict of Boulougone (July 1773) once again confirmed the privileges of the Huguenots and brought a temporary end to the strife. Tensions between Franconia and Vendragia increased considerably however. The Laurasian Empire, on its part, distracted by the Marianian Civil War and the Fourth Laurasian-Marasharite War, remained friendly towards Franconia, having concluded the non-aggression Treaty of Blois (April 1772).
  • Fourth Huguenot War (Ameridinian Colonial War, 1776-1781)
    • Serene Kingdom of Franconia vs. Vendragian Confederacy (with Hanover), Huguenot Confederation.
    • Result: The Fourth Huguenot War proved to be very erratic, with the Huguenot Confederation making peace with the government of King Hensios III (whose brother Charman III died in May 1774), three separate times (Edict of Beaulieu, May 1776); Peace of Bergerac (September 1777); and then the final Peace of Fleix (November 1780). As a result of this, the Franconian Catholic League first emerged, in opposition to the demands of the Huguenots, but the overall picture of religious toleration for the Huguenot sects was retained. There was therefore an effective status quo ante bellum in the Franconian realms. Vendragia, on its part, retained its control of the Ameridinian Colonies, and furthermore acquired the Falkand Isles, Bangladesh, Muscat, Lesser Guiana, and the Louisiana Territories. The Laurasian Empire, distracted by the Durthian Rebellion and its interventions in Haynsia as well as Scottria, remained aloof from the conflict. Spamalka, on its part, was tied down by the Durthian Rebellion and the concurrent Second Cyprian War; Austarlia and Pruthia by the War of the Bavarian Succession.
  • War of the Bavarian Succession (1778-1779)
    • Holy Austarlian Empire vs. Autocratic Pruthian Empire, Electorate of Bavaria, Electorate of Saxony.
    • Result: The War of the Bavarian Succession was sparked by the death of the last Elector of the Wittelsbach dynasty, Maximillian III Joseph, without children in December 1777. Char'vak Theodore, Elector of the Palatinate, was favored by Austarlian Emperor Joseth II; the Duke of Zwickbrucken by the Pruthian Emperor Pru'a IX. The ensuing conflict over the Bavarian succession erupted in July 1778, but proved to be largely inconclusive, in spite of Prua's campaigns in Bohemia, Moravia, and Bavaria. The Treaty of Teschen (May 1779) ended the war with Char'vak Theodore being recognized as Elector of Bavaria. Austarlia, which had hoped to exchange Burgundy for Bavaria, had to content itself with the Innevirtel Corridor, while the Autocratic Pruthian Empire gained the Saxonian Counties of Upper Lusatia, and the succession to the margarviates of Ansbach and Bayreuth (enacted 1791).
  • Second Cyprian War (1778)
    • Holy Spamalkan Empire, Haxonian Confederacy, Vendragian Confederacy, Knights of the Order of Malta vs Marasharite Empire, Barbary States.
    • Result: A general strategic stalemate ensued, with the Haxonians retaining Cyprus and the Lebanite Provinces, while the Spamalkans failed in their attempt to make territorial acquisitions in Tunis and Algiers. Vendragian rights to Muscat and Lower Persia, however, were recognized by the contending parties, while the Marasharites agreed to terminate all financial and material aid to any rebel movements in Grenada, Naparia, or the Morea.
  • War of Drury's Intervention (1779)
  • Laurasian Empire vs. Celestial Kingdom of Scottria.
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire's military forces, primarily under the command of Field-Marshal Sir Willanius Drury, invaded the Celestial Kingdom of Scottria's remaining territories in the Angelina Spiral. The Earl of Morton had become very unpopular within the Scottrian realms; he had been briefly deposed from his position of power by the Earls of Argyll and Angus (August 1778), and then faced a rebellion from those two Earls due to unpopular financial and legal policies. As a result of this conflict, which also saw the mysterious death of Jamsius VI of Scottria, the Scottrian Homeland Territories acceded to the Laurasian Empire. Morton was imprisoned (and would be executed in 1781 after an abortive rebellion), while Argyll was killed and Angus imprisoned (to die in 1795). The Laurasian Empire now directly faced the Haynsian Despotate, in which it had intervened in 1777 to install Jay XIV Karany upon the throne of the Despotate.

1781-1790Edit

  • War of the Portugallian Succession (1780-1783)
    • Holy Spamalkan Empire vs. Serene Kingdom of Portugallia.
    • Result: The death of the childless King of Portugallia, Helegag, in January 1780, resulted in an invasion by Spamalkan Emperor Philicus I, who held a strong hereditary claim to the Portugallian throne, and sought to assert his rights over the Portugallian dominions. He was opposed by Don Antonio of Canto, who considered himself to be the legitimate Portugallian sovereign. The Spamalkan Emperor's forces, under the command of the Duke of Alba and the Count of Santa Cruz, defeated Don Antonio's forces in a series of coordinated military offensives, eventually forcing him to flee to Franconia in exile. In April 1781, Philicus was acknowledged as King of Portugallia by the Portugallian Cortes. This intervention served to intensify tensions with the Laurasian Empire, and with Franconia. It also inspired the Durthian States to further resistance against the Spamalkan forces.
  • Desmonian Rebellion (1781-1783)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Desmonian Confederation of Scottria.
    • Result: Jamsius Fitzmaurice Fitzgerald, Lord of Desmond, instigated a major revolt against the Laurasian Empire's authority over the newly conquered Scottrian Governorates in August 1781. With the assistance of allies such as Sir Nicolaus Sauvaria, Edmund Mac'Laren, the Laird of Imokhill, and the Earl of Desmond, Fitzmaurice's forces made substantial gains in the Outskirt Districts and in the Dumbarton Governorate. Eventually, however, the Rebellion was crushed (November 1783), and virtually all of the rebel leaders were killed in military combat or executed by the Laurasian authorities. Empress Aurelia and the Imperial Intelligence Agency discovered that the Holy Spamalkan Empire of Philicus I had provided moral and financial aid, as well as access to military supplies and mercenaries, to the Desmonian Confederation. This worsened relations between the two Empires, compounded by increasing Laurasian support to the United Durthian States, and by the Thorckmortonia Plot. In 1783, diplomatic ties were formally severed; two years later, the Treaty of Nonsuchia followed.
  • Fifth Laurasian-Marasharite War (concurrent with First Laurasian-Spamalkan War, 1787-1792)
    • Laurasian Empire, Holy Austarlian Empire (1788-90), Grecian Confederates, Sultanate of Morocco vs. Marasharite Empire, Barbary States.
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire's annexation of the Haynsian Despotate (1783), reluctantly acknowledged by the Marasharite Empire in the Treaty of Topacia (1784), following years of Laurasian meddling in the Despotate's internal affairs, served to severely hamper relations between the two governments, and to increase Marasharite distrust of Laurasian ambitions. Furthermore, the secret military alliance between the Laurasian and Holy Austarlian Empires, as signified by the Treaty of Invictus Mesura (1781), served to set both Empires on a direct confrontation course with their Marasharite rivals. In July, 1787, the Marasharite Empire signed the secret Treaty of Rakgur with the Holy Spamalkan Empire, forming a secret alliance of their own (which would turn out to be weak, and to have no impact upon the course of military conflict). Then in November, it launched a preemptive invasion of the Laurasian Empire, gaining early victories in the Northern Reaches, Burglais Arm, and Perekop Reaches, among other regions. The Battle of Kinburn (December 1787), turned the tide, and by the end of 1788, all Marasharite forces had been ejected; furthermore, the Laurasians had entrenched themselves in the Lower Ochanian Provinces. Austarlia honored its military obligations to Laurasia and declared war in February 1788; by 1790, it had conquered the Pazak Cluster, Banat of Temesvar, Olthenia, Lower Danubian Principalities, Serbia, Bosnia, and Albania, thereby inflicting humiliating losses on its Marasharite foes. In 1789, Laurasia and the Sultanate of Morocco, which had defied the Marasharites for a decade, signed a treaty of alliance; Morocco then made gains of its own in the Barbary States, concurrent with the offensives against Spamalka. Austarlia dropped out of the conflict in August 1790, due to increasing tensions with Haxonia and Vendragia, and internal revolt (in Hungary and in Burgundy), but Laurasia conquered all Marasharite territories in the Great Tesmanian Cloud, penetrating into the Danubian Principalities and Bulgania. The Treaty of Jassy (January 1792) ended the war with a decisive Laurasian-Moroccan victory. Laurasia acquired all Marasharite territories in the Great Tesmanian Cloud; gained full recognition of its annexation of the Haynsian Despotate; and had its commercial, religious, and transit privileges reconfirmed. Morocco's sovereignty was acknowledged, and it seized the whole of Mauritania and Sale, besides making gains from both Tunis and Algiers.
  • First Laurasian-Spamalkan War (concurrent with Fifth Laurasian-Marasharite War and Fifth Huguenot War, 1787-1794)
    • Laurasian Empire, Serene Kingdom of Portugallia (after 1789), Serene Kingdom of Franconia (after 1790), Sultanate of Morocco (after 1789), United Durthian States vs. Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Naparia and Milania), Serene Kingdom of Portugallia (to 1789), Franconian Catholic League.
    • Result: The Holy Spamalkan Empire formally declared war against its Laurasian counterpart in December, 1787, and in 1788, launched its own offensive towards it, directed by the Duke of Medinia Sidonia. The destruction of the Spamalkan Armada by Laurasian Fleet Admirals Dracius and Howardis of Effinga (July and August 1788), ended the Spamalkan offensive, and gave the advantage to the allies. Portugallia and Morocco both entered the war, on the side of the Laurasian Empire, in early 1789. "Portugallia's" entry was in the form of Don Antonio of Canto and his forces, acknowledged as the legitimate Portugallian ruler by Laurasian Empress Aurelia. By the end of 1789, all Spamalkan forces had been expelled from Lisbon and the Portugallian Homeland Territories. Franconia, once again racked by internal religious conflict (from 1788), compounded by the deaths of Catharina d' Medici and Hensios III in 1789, formally aligned with the Laurasian Empire in January, 1790. The Franconian Catholic League, which had received financial aid from Spamalka since 1784 (Treaty of Joinville), therefore cooperated with the Spamalkans to imperil the position of King Hensios IV. Nevertheless, the war gradually shifted to the favor of the allied forces. The Treaty of Alacantara (1794), resulted in the recognition of Durthia and Portugallia's independence by Spamalka; the dissolution of the Franconian Catholic League; and the acquisition of Gibraltar, Fuerteventura, Ceuta, and Melila by the Sultanate of Morocco. Furthermore, Portugallia made gains in Brazil, regaining all territories there lost to Spamalka earlier in the century. The war, however, went into hiatus for only a year.

1791-1800Edit

  • War in Defense of the Constitution (1792)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
    • Result: The Durthian Rebellion, followed by the outbreak of the Fifth Laurasian-Marasharite and First Laurasian-Spamalkan Wars (1787), gave the perfect opportunity to those within the Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth who long resented the influence of the Imperial Laurasian Government. The Confederated Diet which convened in 1788, which became known as the Great Diet or as the Four Year's Diet, concluded a token defensive alliance treaty with the Autocratic Pruthian Empire (March 1790), and in May 1791, after a series of more minor reforms, implemented the Dejanican Constitution of 1791, aiming to strengthen the Commonwealth's government. The powers and privileges of the King of Dejanica were extended; the liberum veto, right to confederations, and right of resistance were eliminated; and the judicial, administrative, and executive system of the Commonwealth reorganized, with more civil liberties being extended to the Commonwealth's star systems and to its citizens. Empress Aurelia I of Laurasia viewed these reforms as a major threat to the Empire's influence over the Commonwealth, and with the end of the Fifth Laurasian-Marasharite War, determined to divert some of her military forces to repress the reformist movement. She did this in conjunction with the Targowica Confederation, which arose in July 1791 and opposed the constitutional reforms. The Laurasian Empire invaded the Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth in May 1792, and within two months, had compelled King Stanis Vorrust I of Dejanica into surrender. The Commonwealth was then occupied by Laurasian military forces; Pruthia backed out on its defensive obligations, and in January 1793, the two powers agreed the Second Partition of Dejanica. Laurasia acquired the Belaranian and Ukranian Provinces in the Great Tesmanian Cloud; Pruthia took Thorn, Danzig, and Greater Dejanica. In November 1793, the Grodno Diet was forced to rescind the Constitution of 1791; sign a new treaty of "friendship" with the Laurasian Empire; and to acknowledge the Second Partition. This only fanned further tensions in the Commonwealth against foreign influence.
  • Eighth Italianian War (1792-1797)
    • Autocratic Pruthian Empire (to 1795), Holy Austarlian Empire, Electorate of Bavaria, Electorate of Saxony vs. Haxonian Confederacy, Vendragian Confederacy (with Hanover).
    • Result: The Haxonian and Vendragian Confederacies, whose co-ordinated colonial military campaigns against Mysore, the Marathas, and the Baluchistanis during the 1780s had brought the two states closer together, found themselves at odds with the Holy Austarlian and Autocratic Pruthian Empires, as regards to affairs in Italiania and the Germanian Principalities. War formally erupted in April 1792, after repeated Haxonian violations of Austarlian commercial privileges in the Istrian Provinces, and violation of the Tyrol, Salzburg, Carnithia, and Styria by Haxonian military forces; the refusal of the Confederacies to recognize Austarlian jurisdiction over Florence, the Alpian Provinces, and Baden; and clashes between Pruthia and Hanover over control of such Principalities as Jutland, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Luneburg, and Oldenburg. The war resulted in a series of decisive victories for Haxonian and Vendragian military forces, who humiliated their rivals in confrontations at Valmy, Frankfurt, Mainz, Pisa, Lucca, Tusclo, and in the Alpian Provinces, Styria, Bavaria, Baden, Wurttemburg, and the Westphalian Territories. As a result of the Treaties of Basel (1795) and Campo Formio (1797), the Vendragian Electorate of Hanover acquired Jutland, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Luneburg, Austarlian Frisia, and Oldenburg, thereby compounding its earlier territorial gains in the region. Haxonia, on its part, gained recognition of its rule over Florence, Pisa, and Austarlian Sardinia. In return, the Holy Austarlian Empire's rule of Padua, Modena, Paravia, Bologna, Caranza, and the Ravennite Patrimony was recognized, thereby maintaining its hold of San Marino, the Vatican Circles, and Tuscany.
  • Kosciusko Revolt (1794)
    • Laurasian Empire, Autocratic Pruthian Empire (to July 1794), Dejanican-Lithuanian Commonwealth vs. Kosciusko Confederation.
    • Result: Tadeuz Koscizusko, who had fought as a mercenary in the Ameridinian Colonial War, organized from late 1793 a covert movement of rebellion against the Laurasian Empire. He sought to restore the Constitution of 1791; to overthrow foreign influence; and to implement significant reforms to the Dejanican economy, society, and culture. In March 1794, he made his announcement of rebellion at Krakow; the following month, the Dejanican garrison of Dejanica Major expelled the Laurasian Empire's military forces from the system. The Revolt quickly spread to Lesser Dejanica, to Lithuania, and to the Lublin Voivodeship; as a result, the Laurasian Empire faced reverses on all fronts. It even spread into Greater Dejanica and Kalisz, thereby inspiring the Autocratic Pruthians to cooperation with the Laurasians. The first allied offensive against Dejanica Major failed (September 1794), but at that same time, Lieutenant-General the Lord Surovius of Rymnik, renowned Laurasian military hero and veteran of the wars against Marasharita and the Bar Confederation, assumed command of the Empire's forces. Kosciusko was defeated and captured in October 1794; Dejanica Major itself fell the following month, following the victorious Battle of Praga. The Revolt was completely suppressed. The ultimate result of the Revolt was the extinction of the Commonwealth (October 1795-January 1797); the abdications of Stanis Vorrust I of Dejanica and Duke Peter von Bironia of Northania and Semigallia; and the Laurasian Empire's extension of control over the entire Great Tesmanian Cloud. Podlachia, Warmia, Lodz, Dejanica Major, and the North Vistula fell to the Autocratic Pruthian Empire; Krakow, Lublin, Southern Vistula, and Western Galicia to the Holy Austarlian Empire.
  • Second Laurasian-Spamalkan War (1795-1798)
    • Laurasian Empire, United Durthian States, Serene Kingdom of Franconia vs Holy Spamalkan Empire (with Naparia and Milania).
    • Result: In March 1795, King Hensios IV of Franconia, who had now established his capital world on Parri and obtained the allegiance of all nobles and star systems that previously belonged to the Franconian Catholic League, declared war against the Holy Spamalkan Empire, seeking to consolidate his realm's territorial boundaries and to make gains in Franche-Comte and in Italiana at the expense of the the Spamalkans. He was soon joined in his renewed military conflict by the Laurasian Empire and by the United Durthian States, the latter of which was determined to expel all remaining Spamalkan units from the Southern Durthian Duchies and the Electorate of Cologne. Spamalkan forces managed to gain a series of initial success, through the middle of 1796, in the Pale of Calais, Picardy, Franche-Comte, the Parri Region, the Ardennian Worlds, and Alsace-Lorraine. At the same time, however, the Durthians made considerable progress against their enemies in Brabant and Flanders; the Laurasian Empire's military forces successively subdued the Spamalkan Spice Colonies, Floriana, and the Central Territories, including the Guatemalan, Nicaraguan, and Panamanian Sectors.
    • By 1797, the balance of the war had completely changed; by the end of that year, all Spamalkan forces had been ejected from Franconian territory, Lichtenstein, Cologne, and Luxembourg, along with most of Brabant, Zeeland, and Flanders had fallen into Durthian hands; Laurasian forces had conquered Andalusia, Grenada, Galicia, and Asturias; while Milania, Catalonia, Spamalkan Navarre, the Basques, and Lesser Spamalka were all under direct military invasion. Philicus I, bankrupt and disillusioned, saw his empire hurled completely from the Durthian Duchies during the first half of 1798; in June, he was forced to sue for peace. The Treaty of Vervins (September 1798), ended the Second Laurasian-Spamalkan War and the Durthian Rebellion. The absolute and unfettered independence of the United Durthian States was recognized; Brabant, Flanders, the Electorate of Cologne, Luxembourg, and Lichtenstein were seceded in their entirety to Durthia.
    • Franconia acquired the Duchy of Milania (in personal union), thereby finally getting its hands on a territory disputed for more than a century. It also acquired Franche-Comte, Pesignol, Andorra, Spamalkan Navarre, and Northern Catalonia, thereby consolidating and rounding out its frontiers. Andalusia, Galicia, the Basques, Grenada, Asturias, and Leon were all restored to the Holy Spamalkan Empire, as were parts of the Central Territories, Floriana, and the Puerto Rican Sector. However, Durthia and Franconia both acquired Spamalkan colonial territories. Guantanamo, Santiago, Sao Vicente, San Juan de Ulua, St. Lucia, Kitts, the Spamalkan Antilles, the Spamalkan Caymans, Recife, Pinos, Tabasco, David, and Panama Prime went to Durthia; while Franconia acquired Puerto Caballos, Miquelon, Tobago, Martinique, Gudaloupe, Montserrat, Curacao, and Anguilla. The Holy Spamalkan Empire, which lay financially, morally, and militarily defeated, as well as exhausted, at the end of the eighteenth century, seethed for revenge.
  • Tyrone's Rebellion (1798-1800)
    • Laurasian Empire vs. Tyrone's Confederation.
    • Result: The Laurasian Empire's rule over the Scottrian Governorates, following the suppression of the Desmonian Rebellion (1783), gradually established the Laurasian administrative, military, religious, and noble structure throughout the former realms of the Celestial Kingdom of Scottria. However, this did not suppress all dissent against the authority of the Imperial Laurasian Government. Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone, who had ironically been one of the few Scottrian nobles rewarded by the Empress Aurelia, arose in rebellion in May 1798, along with his associate the Earl of Donaugh. Due to the Laurasian Empire's focus on campaigns in the Amulak Spiral, and to the Empress Aurelia's downplaying of the initial threat, Tyrone made substantial gains, securing virtually all of the Dumbarton Governorate and parts of the Ediania Governorate; his victory at Yellow Pulsars (August 1798), finally convinced the Empress and her ministers of the full threat he posed. In January 1799, the Empress's favorite, the Earl of Estatius, became Governor-General of the Scottrian Governorates and with substantial reinforcements (freed from the war and from garrison duties), managed to make some reconquests at rebel expense. Estatius, however, failed to launch a decisive strike, and in September 1799, after concluding a treasonous "truce" with Tyrone", he hurried back to the Imperial Court, determined that his enemies were seeking to destroy him. His fall from favor was swift, leading at first to house arrest, then loss of all offices and privileges, and then, in February 1801, to an abortive coup which ended in execution. Empress Aurelia, on her part, assigned the famed Field-Marshal Surovius (now promoted to the rank of Generalissimo), who had cemented his reputation by his exploits during the Second Spamalkan War, to the command. Surovius crushed Tyrone's Rebellion by July 1800. Donaugh was killed in combat, and Tyrone was captured, only to commit suicide in December 1800 before he could be brought to Laurasia Prime for trial. Surovius himself died shortly after the suppression of the rebellion, but the Empire's rule over Scottria was now secure.
