1001 - 1100

The second millennium is ushered in with a temporary peace on the continent of Groot.  The fighting resumes in a surprise attack on the Muamiyan Caliphate by the Silver Republic in late 1007.  The Silver Republic's forces quickly penetrate deep into their territory with the majority of Muamiyan forces busy on the several fronts of the war.  In 1022, the Silver Republic's army sacks Panthalassas and replaces Muamiya V with Achamed I, a more moderate Muslim who establishes the Achamayad Caliphate.  He first attempts to make peace with Obem and the Panthalassan Empire, who both refuse, and he reluctantly orders his armies to continue their advance into Panthalassan territory.

In 1018, the Cielian Peace begins, in which all the Cielian nations work together to advance themselves and excel.  Unbeknownst to the rest of the world, this would much later lead to the possible world domination of these powers over their less advanced neighboring continents.  The island of Cimmeria is named part of Ciel in 1023.  The Scientific Revolution sweeps Ciel in 1034, leading to massive industrialism and new discoveries in the fields of biology, chemistry, and astronomy.  This will last nearly 300 years until Ciel is engulfed in war for many years.

The world in 1100 AD

In the meantime, the continent of South Gondwana spirals into the Grand War in 1047 after a series of diplomatic failures between Andea, Judea, and Sanctum.  The Catholics in Sanctum go to war with the Jews in Judea and Protestants in Sanctum, and the Jews with the Protestants.  This war lasts until 1079, with the defeat of Sanctum and Judea by Andea.  Many Catholics are captured and enslaved by those in Andea, and the nation seen as the "nation of the Pope" is utterly humiliated.  No territorial changes take place in this war.  In 1089, Cimmeria annexes its territories and dependencies.

1101 - 1250

The 12th century begins with the Laurasian Revolution.  Supported by Sinuk, the Laurasians rebel against their oppressive Cimmerian rulers in 1103.  The war begins with a riot in a large city of former Laurasia, and the Sinnish people, originating from Laurasia, support the nation.  The war is the bloodiest so far in recent history, claiming 7 million lives in total, but ends in the freedom of east Laurasia in 1109, which opts to become a part of Sinuk after forming the temporary United Laurasian Kingdom briefly in 1108.  Lyon, founded on the principles of freedom for all, begins to actively take part in conflicts across the war torn southern hemisphere and fight for the freedom of oppressed peoples such as the Groots and Cyruleans who had been conquered by the Muslims.

In 1119, Lyon introduces firearms into combat for the first time in history during a battle with the Achamayad Caliphate after establishing a type of alliance with Panthalassas, and it yields devastating effects.  The Panthalassans and Lyons push the Muslims back into former Grooten within a few years.  In 1124, Cimmeria blockades its territory of North Wing, meaning it would not allow any ships to pass around it, including Lyonish ones and Panthalassan ones.  This soured the already unfriendly relations between these countries, and led to the War of the Eagle in 1131 when the Panthalassans, fed up with being taking advantage of by other powers, aided by the Lyons, invaded the North Wing and retook the territory in 1133, expelling the Cimmerians and destroying much of their navy with the Lyonish warships, now equipped with cannons, devouring the now inferior Cimmerian fleet.  The Cimmerians broke off all relations with Ciel after this defeat, due to their repeated conflicts of interest.

Following Lyonish intervention in world affairs, the world began looking at Ciel, mostly Lyon, as a symbol of eventual freedom from tyranny and oppression.  The world became too dependent on the powerful Lyonish military to fight its battles, with some world leaders even saying they felt "betrayed" by Lyonish neutrality in some conflicts.  For example, when the War of 1142 broke out in between Sanctum, Andea, and Gondawa, ending in the Partition of Gondawa, King Anthony of Gondawa said of the Lyonish people "They intervene only when the result will be of direct benefit to them...else they turn the other cheek to matters of injustice."  Of course, the Lyonish people are the very same that Gondawa had conquered and oppressed years before, so Anthony just looked foolish in their eyes.

Following the War of the Eagle, Ciel realized that it would definitely need powerful military technology and a great economy if it were to maintain its fast earned standingin the world and its superiority over the war mongering nations in the east and south.  Therefore, in 1152, the Pact of Abaza established a trade union between the 3 Cielian nations, and established the nation of Gondora, predominantly Gondwanan refugees coming from conquered Gondawa.  This pact was later revised in 1213 after Lyon and New Cimbria intervened in the Second Grand War in 1211, having the unintended consequence of creating an isolationist movement across Ciel, to prohibit any foreign intervention not approved by all members of the Abaza Pact.

The time leading up to the Second Grand War (1209 - 1217) was peaceful save for the ongoing Islamic Expansion Wars.  The world economy greatly improved and again, technological advancement soared, greatly improving military technology, and improving humanity's understanding of science and nature.  Mass production began, and soon nearly everyone in civilized nations owned a carriage or some other method of quicker transportation.  The Abaza Pact's economy boomed, since each nation that lacked a certain good could trade for it with other member nations.

In 1209, the Pope was yet again assassinated, this time poisoned by Muslims from now Muslim Obem.  Sanctum quickly declared war on Obem after electing Pope Andrew II.  A few years later, Sanctum also declared war on Andea at the request of the Pope due to the "sinful" nature of the scientific advancements being introduced there.  Tethys originally declared neutrality, but their civil war broke out in 1210 over whether or not to support Sanctum, which was again losing the war.  Lyon was quick to back the interventionist rebels, being an interventionist and Catholic country itself.  The Tethysian army was surprisingly powerful, having been at peace for many years and having time to build it.  This led to the first conflict in which the Lyonish Army took large casualties, nearly 900,000 in fact, and all of Ciel wanted to maintain an isolationist policy to avoid anything as devastating in the future, leading to the Tethys Revision of the Abaza Pact, which also added Tethys as a protectorate of sorts of the Abaza Pact.

Nevertheless, the Tethysian government was overthrown, and King Leon V of Lyon crowned himself king of Tethys, formerly an Empire, in 1212.  In late 1212, Tethys entered the Second Grand War and declared war on Andea and Obem.  Obem quickly surrendered to the Catholics in 1213, fighting a war on two fronts proving two difficult, and ceded a large amount of territory, including Eden, which became the Duchy of Eden, governed by Sanctum.  The Pope was moved there the next year.  Andea, making great gains into Sanctum, was halted when Judea invaded and sacked the capital city of Andus Peak in 1216, and King Abraham declared himself Emperor of Andea.  Nearly no one actually obeyed Abraham, but he was technically in command of the military, and his armies had taken Emperor Joshua II prisoner.  Unsure of what to do, the Andean military fell back and was chased by the Catholics into their own territory, where they were cut off by the occupying Judeans and smashed by the invading armies in what is known as the Battle of Andea.  Andea was purged of all things deemed harmful to God, despite protests from Leon V, and prohibited from ever raising another army, as stated in the treaty of Gondwana.

In 1223, Tethys, Sanctum, and Judea formed the Union of Abrahamic Nations, based on the model of that of the Abaza Pact.  After this war, the Second Global Peace begins, so nothing else major occurs except for technological advancements until the 14th century.
