Irene's War or Irene's Rebellion was a conflict between Pagan revolters (later the Kingdom of Hellas) and the Byzantine army over the control of southern Greece and the Aegean Isles. The war led to the establishment of the Kingdom of Hellas, the first neo-Pagan nation in history and a thorn in Byzantium's side for almost 100 years until its Byzantine Reconquest.
