The Great Alliances

Rome allied itself formally only with  the larger nations of the world. Among these were the United Tribes, the Sinican Empire, the Maya, and the Otjomouise who were Rome’s largest competition in New Africa until they chose to work together.

The Otjomouise and Roman friendship was particularly distressing for the Zulu Republic who believed that the Romans were their ally following the blockade that attempted to drive the Otjomouise from New Africa. However, once the Otjomouise re-established themselves, it became clear that the Otjomouise had more to offer. These branched out further into the Sinican-Tibetan Alliance and the Sinican-Mongolian Alliance. Rome also sought to incorporate India into this system but the new Indians were not having it.

This organization was very different from the way the Cimbrians and Japanese organized. Japan and Cimbria allied themselves together but Japan also had a military treaty with the Aztecs, the Chimu, the Tastil, and the Mapuche. The Tastil and the Mapuche had also maintained good relations with the Siddharthists and the Bantu because of their closeness to each other in New Africa. The Japanese also had a strong connection with the Korean Empire, though they had been downplayed in world affairs recently. The Bantu and Siddharthists chose to remain unallied but their connections were clear.

This division in the world would have terrible consequences.

The Hubrian Unrest

A Roman businessman, Cinna Aulus Hubrius, had grown to incredible wealth in the footsteps of his idol, Travandius. Hubrius was especially active in the military and medical industries. Being an unscrupulous man, Hubrius used the connection between war and medicine to maximize his own profits. Beginning in Rome and extending across that empire and the world, Hubrius sold weapons to many subversive groups to create riots and other tragedies causing both the rebels and the government to purchase weapons for their soldiers and medicine for the wounded.

This process was unknown to most of the people in the world but as history progressed, the period from 1565-1591 (812-383 AD) was named the Hubrian Period of Unrest because the rampant violence in the world all came back to Hubrius. This was discovered long after his death; but his family name was tarnished forever.

Beginning in 1565 (812 AD) The Athens Rebellion was started by Greek polytheists who believed the god Ares desired Greek independence. In 1567 (814 AD), the Zoroaster revolt was started for much the same reason by radical Zoroastrians looking to create a new Parthian Empire. In Alexandria, Aegyptus in 1568 (815 AD) the sons of Aten, another religious organization, sought to remake the Aegyptian church and its former glory by cutting off Aegypt’s largest port. This led to a dramatic increase in bread prices across the Empire which led to the Battle of Vatican Hill in Rome, the Uprising of Mons Martis in Lutetia (Paris), the Massacre of Primula Hill in Londinium (London), the Verona Rebellion in Verona (Bern, Switzerland). the Colonia Agrippina Incident in Colonia Agrippina (Cologne, Germany), and the Vallis Tolitum Massacre in Vallis Tolitum (Valladolid, Spain). All of these took place in the year 1569 (816 AD).

Battle for control of the gold and jewel mines of Nigeria by natives took place from 1571-1574 (818-821 AD). The Haemodae and Acmodae War of Independence was a group of revolts for independence of the Haemodae Islands (Shetland Islands) and the Acmodae Islands (Orkney Islands) north of Caledonia from 1574-1576 (821-823 AD). Aquitania attempted to retake Narbonensis in 1577 (823 AD) but this failed quickly. A group of people known as Humanists rose up in Raetia and tried to assassinate the governor on several occasions from 1577-1579 (823-825 AD).

In the new world, the Roman island of Colubria (Trinidad) suffered several arson attacks in the main city of Mucurapio (Port-of-Spain) which was a center of trade for the Maya and the Romans. Other attacks hit the Roman cities of Lurium (Curiapo, Venezuela), Ulixes (Belem, Brazil), Vargio (La Guaira, Venezuela), Martinia (Martuin, Venezuela), Brancium (Boa Vista, Brazil), Macapabia (Macapa, Brazil), Demeria (Georgetown, Guyana), Parboria (Paramaribo, Suriname), Cainobia (Cayenne, French Guiana), Tequestia (Miami, Florida), Carolorum (Nassau, Bahamas), Quelia (Santiago de Cuba, Cuba), Ayiti (Santo Domingo), and Capara (San Juan, Puerto Rico) periodically from 1573-1588 (820-835 AD).

Shootings and bombings were rampant in east Asia, specifically the colonies. The Khmer were a very active group looking for a restoration of their independence from Sinica. The Khmer War of 1579-1583 (825-829 AD) was especially destructive because of the slash and burn techniques used on the fields in that region. From Sumatra to the Southeast Asian Peninsula, there were only small pockets of intact forest or farmland. In the southeast portion of the Shigenobu Shogunate, near OTL border between Arizona and Mexico, there were separatist native groups who sought to join the Aztec Alliance and not submit to a foreign power. They were more easily put down.

Attacks in the city of Shanghai, Xi’an, Nanjing, and all across Australia were all also for independence from the Sinican Empire. In the Hosokawa shogunate, which was made up largely of native Japanese, they desired a lower tariff so that they could expand their ports that connected them with Japan’s northern colonies. In what was the Admiralty of Lapita, the Commonwealth Republic of Vanuatu, and the Kingdom of Malaita there were several attacks on Japanese Naval Bases and Thenmobism began rising in the island of Borneo which caused incredibly violent attacks on Buddhist Temples. The same thing happened in Madagascar and in the area formerly known as the Satavahana Kingdom that was divided by the many African nations.

Massacres of religious groups that were deemed “cults,” such as in Harbin, Hong Kong, and Hefei, were also common during this time of strife and violence.

Beginning in 1579 (825 AD) there were several Tibetan groups that were seeking to overthrow the country’s long standing religious government. The Dalai lama had become an autocrat in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition because he was so revered by the people and even the Emperor. Periodically, bombings, staged avalanches, shootings, fires, and even simple attackers with a knife would come at the Dalai Lama. To combat this, increased government regulations were put on the people of Tibet and a new organization of elite bodyguard-monks was formed called “The Golden Order” in 1584 (831 AD).

The Death of the Dalai Lama and the Anti-Japanese Movement

In 1592 (839 AD) after several more attempts on his life, the Dalai Lama was killed, two and a half years after the last major attempt. He was killed by Captain Drigum Gampo, leader of the Golden Order. Drigum Gampo was actually raised by Japanese immigrants who were part of a secret sect of Buddhism seeking to topple any organized government, believing that anarchy was the true government of Buddhism. These Japanese anarchists were quickly dismantled by the Tibetan government which came under the control of the Emperor as a new Dalai Lama was searched for. In the meantime, outrage among Tibetans prompted widespread violence and action against the Japanese. This fervor spread to the Sinican Kingdom and then to Mongolia. All Japanese in these countries were either exiled or imprisoned for being “subversive.” India after long pressure also ended all Japanese immigration and put a 35% tariff on Japanese imports, effectively cutting off trade with Japan. In 1593 (840 AD) the Romans and the United Tribes also put a 35% tariff on Japanese trade.

Part of the Treaty that ended the Mongolian expansion was free trade of minerals between the two countries of minerals from the territories Japan ceded. With Mongolia’s new trade restrictions that treaty was violated and the Japanese chose to declare war in 1594 (841 AD).

Japan declared war on Mongolia which led the Cimbrian Alliance and the Jaguar Alliance also declared war on Mongolia. Similarly, Sinica and Tibet declared war on Japan and the Roman Empire and the United Tribes declared war on Cimbria. The Otjomouise declared war on Cimbria and the Jaguar Alliance and the Zulu declared war on Rome, the United Tribes and the Otjomouise. The Maya declared war on the Jaguar Alliance. By the end of the first month of 1594 (841 AD), the world was at war. Only a few countries, the Siddharthist Republic, the Bantu Kingdom, the Korean Empire, and India, remained neutral by this time.
