The war was also a civil war of sorts for Australia, fought between those loyal to President George Gipps and Emperor Edward I, who had seized power a few months prior in the northeastern region of the country and occupied the capital. However, George Gipps was defeated quickly, as he had few supporters after the rocky period under his leadership, and was unable to raise an army quickly enough.
After a few months of fighting, Louis agreed to sell the colony of New Louisiana for the equivalent of $8,750,000. Following the defeat of the Louisianans under the command of General Robert Lévesque, the Australians then invaded, occupied, and ultimately annexed the neighboring provinces of Tasmania and New Zealand. Later, George Gipps returned to Great Britain and died in Oxford.
