Engagements

The Lurdentanian Army primarily focuses on ceremonial duties and field activities, however has been mobilized on two occasions. Once at the Lurdentanian Civil War and once on the Siege of Fort Roy. The Lurdentanian Civil war was a conflict fought over two days. The entire Lurdentanian Army was deployed, to defend Fort Roy and ultimately the Imperial Palace against invading foreign and domestic rebels. The civil war, whilst tedious and long, resulted in a Government Victory. No major casualties were obtained during the civil war, except for a rolled ankle which was caused during a Rebel rush on Fort Roy. The Siege of Fort Roy occured against a local communist Micronation, attempting to attack Fort Roy. The attack lasted a mere hour and was repelled by the 1st Western Myrth Regiment.
