The Great War was a global war centered mainly in Europe that began February 26, 1913 and lasted until March 9, 1918.

Black Sunday

The start of The Great War can be traced back to the event called Black Sunday, which occurred on February 23rd, 1913. The date was originally planned as a treaty signing between the nations of Venice and Aragon-Sicily to ease tensions between the two historic rivals. Set up in the Vatican City to be overseen by then Pope St Pius X, the Venetians sent Ambassador Palmiro Palumbo, a close friend of then Venetian President Ferdinando Manco, the Kingdom of Aragon-Sicily sent High Noble Adalberto Molina of Zaragoza to sign the treaty between the two nations. Many nations around the world were hoping this treaty would fall through as it would help alleviate the tension not just between the two nations, but the alliances and pacts each nation were aligned to.

On the day of the treaty signing in the grand meeting room, Pius X, Palumbo and Molina all met to sign the treaty. Cameras were both ready to capture and film the historic event, until a rogue assailant stormed into the room after killing three guards before heading into the main signing room. The assailant unloaded a single bullet for each of the signers and the Pope. There was no attempt however to capture the assailant as he instantly shot and killed by the guards in the room. Medical assistance was given to all those harm, only one guard survived during the shooting. Pope Pius X, Ambassador Palmiro Palumbo, and Noble Adalberto Molina all died due to their gun wounds.

The reaction between both Venice and Aragon-Sicily came to a breaking point. As both heads of governments blamed one another for the murder of their representative and the pope. While the citizens of both nations called for the blood of the other.

Alliance System

Along with the events of Black Sunday that ignited the Great War. It was the Alliance systems that helped drag so many nations into the war itself. The already existing Lisboa Pact which was signed in 1897 between the two most powerful Republican powers the Iberian Empire and Venetian Republic. In the New World however the Avalonian Federation had created it's own alliance with the various other democratic or republican states in the New World. It was not until 1907 that the Avalonian Federation was added into the Pact along with it's allies. The newer alliance known as the Republican Mutual Defense Alliance.

Opposite to the Lisboa Pact was the Divine Agreement. An alliance of the older monarchies within Eurasia consisting of the Byzantine Empire, Persian Empire, and Aragon-Sicily. The oldest of the alliance systems dating back to 1854, after the Coalition had beat back and dismantled the Grand Jagiellonian Empire, after a series between 1837 up to its defeat in 1853. When nearing the beginning of the 20th century the Divine Agreement expanded it's members to include the Muscovian Empire and Jerusalem, with their allies following suit.

The first front of the Great War to open up was the Italian front between the Venetian Republic and its sworn enemy, the Kingdom of Aragon-Sicily. The first initial campaign on the Italian Front occurred between the months of February and July, the "Tuscany Push". When Venetian Colonel Peppe Tamàro began a massive cavalry push into the Tuscany region, quickly sweeping into the lowland province. With Tamàro's quick sweep into Tuscany he was able to claim in the region after infantry divisions swept in to clean up pocket resistance. Though Tamàro's quick advance left him greatly over extended and could not close up his flanks quick enough, leaving him open to counter-attacks from the Aragon-Sicily forces. The inevitable occurred, when a counter offensive led by a Sicilian general, Daniele Nizzola.
