The Lyteran Civil War, also known as The Lyteran War of the Crown or The Bloody Revolution was a swift uprising against King Matthew of Lytera. The war began after Grand Duke Alexander protested the harsh laws Matthew planned to introduce, citing the fact that the two of them should be equal. Matthew retaliated by tricking Alex and locking him in a room in the Imperial Household. However, the King failed to realise the fact that the royal family supported his brother more then him. Consequently, Alexander was freed by Duke Owen, and with the help of Duchess Megan, engaged in a full on combat with Matthew in the Royal Gardens. While the Alexandrian supports had the manpower, Matthew had stockpiled nerf guns and other weapons, including a wooden sword. By the end of the day, the King had used up all his ammunition and broken his sword. However, Duke Owen had been hit in the eye during the combat, and was escorted to safety. Not long after, the King was captured, and forced into an unconditional surrender, where he signed his right to the throne to his brother. Duchess Megan became second in line to the throne as a show of goodwill for her support.


Background

From the 17th to the 23rd of march, Megan and Owen, the Kings cousins were staying round. On the 19th, King Matthew's birthday, he proclaimed his right to the throne, and this agreement was ratified by his cousins and brother. His brother kept his title of Grand Duke, and his cousins received the titles of Duchess and Duke. Issues were already noticed when the King proclaimed only he would be making laws.
