The Morivaine Revolution (French: Révolution morivaine) was an influential period of social and political upheaval in Morieux that lasted from 1727 until 1752. Inspired by liberal and radical ideas, the Revolution profoundly altered the course of modern history, triggering the global decline of theocracies and absolute monarchies while replacing them with republics and democracies. The revolution unleashed a wave of global conflicts that extended from the Leucia to the Wilissia.

Initial Phase

Removal of Edouard II, ascension of the PR.

Revolutionary Wars

While the republicans solidified their control of Saint-Lo and the southern coastline, Royalists and Styrian supporters raised a large military force in the northern reaches of the country. Royalist forces led by the Prince de Conti attempted to seize control of Saint-Nazaire and the large armory in the city. Styrian troops cross the border to assist the Royalist forces. Large Royalist-Styrian force meets elements of the Free Republican Army led by Darlan outside of the city on the banks of the Mayenne. Darlan is killed in the battle. Royalists do better afterward, forcing the Republican Army back toward Severac. General So and So comes to the forefront and reorganizes the Free Republican Army into the National Guard. Newly reorganized and fully trained units, assisted by defecting Royalist soldiers, leads to significant turn around at the Battle of Condé. Republican forces are able to rout the Royalists and Styrians yet again. Republican forces chase the royalists and styrians back across the border and begin to threaten the invasion of Styria itself.

In the southern departments, berber emirates begin to raid and finally invade outlying Morivaine territory.

With the Styrian and Royalist forces decisively defeated and the Berber emirates fully subdued, the nascent First Morivaine Republic shifted its attention from the Alisnan continent to the task of reconquest of the Malouines and Rochehaut. A vast fleet of heavy warships and transports was assembled under the command of Admiral Théophile du Motier, Marquis de Hautefort and set out for the Malouines 1747.

The Terror

Royalists begin assassinating many Republican leaders, including bravest martyr Georges Saint-Just.

Aftermath

First Republic owns everyone, ends up becoming a republican dictatorship run by the PR and the National Guard.
