The Old Guard Party of Essexia is a Traditionalist Political Party. It was founded on the 21st July 2019 to reignite Monarchist ideals and to force the then First Minister Lord Jamie of Essexia to resign.
Following the events of the Grey Weekend, the Old Guard Party was to form a coalition with the WAR Party on the 4th January 2020, but a subsequent merger never occurred, despite it being believed that such an event would happen.
The Old Guard was founded on the 21st July 2019 to reignite Monarchist ideals and to force the then First Minister Lord Jamie of Essexia to resign. It successfully achieved its goals with the help of Lord Matthew of Essexia who had grown tired of Jamie and began planning with the other members of the Party to force his resignation; Lord Jacob of Essexia who, as Defence Secretary, was made Lord Commissar of the Essexian Military Junta; Crown Minister Jack of Essexia who led negotiations between the Old Guard and other individuals to bring about Jamie's resignation peacefully; and the much-appreciated support from Crown Minister Ben of Essexia, Lord George of Essexia, Emperor Terry of Essexia, and many more.
After Crown Minister Jack had successfully persuaded Jamie to resign and support Lord Jacob's candidacy, Emperor Terry I formally declared Martial Law and dissolved the Parliament of Essexia for the first time since the 16th September Civil War (Which had also coincidentally been supported by Crown Minister Jack and Crown Minister Ben). This resulted in the Armed Forces taking charge of Essexia and forming the Essexian Military Junta, led by Lord Commissar Jacob, and was also administrated by Commissar Ben (S) and Lord Admiral Jack, and Lieutenant Matt (G), Captain Matthew and Banner Serjeant George (Serjeant being spelt with a 'J' instead of the standard 'G' in Essexia).
