The 23 January Coup was the second attempt by Charlie Dormer and Ryan House to depose Max I in favour of Tom Gilly after the First Civil War. The coup was initially successful and gained support from the government but after Tom Gilly’s controversial objection to the Anti-DC Bill proposed a day later, Max I was reinstalled.
