The Antillian Revolt was a colonial uprising against the ruling Roman and native Taino authorities on the island of Antillia in the Imperial Sea. Lasting from 1841 to 1843, the revolt forced the Roman authorities to face their fear of losing their last major territorial possession in the New World.

The war was ultimately won by Roman authorities and the local population, who did not give the rebels the popularity that had happened with other mainland revolts. This was because the rebels were fractured and disorganized with different motives and some performed many acts of violence that ultimately cost them many potential followers.

History

Background

The revolt had its origins with the rest of the ongoing colonial independence movements taking hold across the New World. By the time of the revolt, almost the entire New World had become independent, with only French Emeraldie, Dutch Guyana, and Hamburgerian possessions as the other outposts of European power.

Rome itself had faced a harsh blow during such revolutions, when Imperial authority was cast off by native Borealians in the Borealian provinces and established the independent Republic of Reme. Rome, unable to effectively fight back because of an ongoing civil war, was forced to withdraw but vowed to one day return.

Since then, Roman action in the New World had been relatively mute, with most concern being about smuggling and piracy and only minute attention paid to fears of war. However, the New Munich Pact lead by the Commonwealth of Borealia saw all forms of colonialism as wrong and endeavored to free all lands from European control. Many newly independent nations in Borealia saw likewise, and it was not until Mexaca under Emperor Hernando Cuauhtémoc nearly conquered all of the Mexaca Valley and the Yucatan that Roman officials began to take note.

The islands of the Imperial Sea were less prone to rebellion than the rest of the New World, with only Cuba having some degree of insurrection prior to the Antillian Revolt. As a result, Roman authorities did not suspect that there would be any potential for unrest. However, there were calls for independence and liberty from Roman rule, mostly from Roman liberals and disgruntled native Taino planters being paid low wages on the vast plantations.
