 The Great Asian War, also known as the Asian-European War was a war between the nations of Europe and Asia.

Prelude

In the late 17th century the nations of Europe were starting to colonize, claim and conquer many parts of the world. In a conference between the European leaders, they agreed to invade Asia with a enormous naval invasion in an attempt to bring much of Asia under European control. The plot was discovered by Chinese spies and the Asian leaders and agreed to work together to resist the attempt to conquer their land.

Naval Invasion

In 1660 France, England, the Holy Roman Empire, Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands declared war on the Asian nations of China, Khmer Empire, Nusantara, Mughal Empire, Bhutan, Tibet, Korea and Singhala. The European fleet set sail to Singapore (Malay: Singapura), where they planned to start their conquest with the Invasions of the Khmer Empire and Nusantara. The Asian fleet was well prepared and more than 1,500 ships led by Empress Kechang la-Choden awaited the arrival of the European invaders. On August 26, the two forces in the coast of Singapore met and started the Battle at Singapore. A short but enormous battle followed and with an overwhelming majority the Europeans were defeated and forced to flee.

Land Invasion

The remaining European forces attempted to invade the Indian subcontinent and the Khmer Empire. They successfully landed at the shores, where they managed to capture some small villages. The Mughal Army defeated the Indian expedition at Dhaka on January 16, 1662 and the Khmer Army defeated the Khmer expedition at Krung Thep in March 5, 1662. The remaining forces were divided and the last of them were all captured or killed by 1663.

Aftermath

Following the defeat of the Europeans, both the European and Asian leaders met at the Congress of Angkor. Europe was forced to accept the conditions of the Asians under the threat of an invasion of Europe. The Europeans were forced to cover the costs of the war and Asian trade with Europe was extremely limited in the following decades, which caused a major financial crisis for Europe.

Trivia

  • The Battle at Singapore was the largest naval battle in the history of the world
