The Arendellian Great War was a global conflict that enveloped the planet of Arendelle and began on July 5th, 2015. The war was fought between the planet's two primary great powers, the Kingdom of Arendelle and the Kingdom of the South Isles. The Duchy of Weselton had become a vassal of the South Isles shortly before the conflict and fought on the side of the Isles. More than 90 million military personnel were mobilized in what would become the second most brutal conflict in the history of the planet. Factors that contributed to starting the conflict heavily involved control of the continent of Vlenoya. The Isles were the first to discover Vlenoya and they attempted to lay claim to the entire continent. The Kingdom of Arendelle sternly believed that the Isles could only lay claim to specific regions that they had actually colonized and therefore the rest of the continent was up for grabs. Arendelle would later establish colonies of it's own in Vlenoya despite South Isle protests. Finally, after various border disputes between the colonies, King Eric of the South Isles presented Arendelle with a ultimatum to withdraw completely from Vlenoya.

In retaliation for Arendelle refusing to withdraw from Vlenoya, the South Isles sank Arendellian supply ships (that they believed were arming South Isles slaves) in the Kamoura Gulf and launched an invasion of Mirefield to assist the Chevalier revolution. There was supposed to be a secondary invasion of Arendelle City at the same time, but South Isles Admiral Häberli called it off due to a large presence of Arendellian naval ships. Prince Hans had been in cahoots with Duke Gaston and secured South Isles funding for the Chevalier Party. The overall goal was to create a revolution that would see the fall of the Arendellian monarchy and install Gaston as Archduke of Arendelle. As Archduke of Arendelle, Gaston would have served as a puppet of the South Isles. However, the day that the South Isles chose to invade Mirefield was the same day that the Arendellian government had chosen to launch Operation Swiftsting to eradicate the Chevalier Party. The Chevalier Party would be defeated and the South Isles invasion forces repelled. Renewed support for the Arendellian monarchy and outrage directed at the South Isles would lead to Arendellian Great War of Unification.

Battle of Zyemn Sea Edit

The Battle of Zyemn Sea took place in the waters separating Central Arendelle from the Southern Isles. A combined total of around 20,000 ships were involved, which makes it the largest naval battle in Arendellian history. In order to determine where the war would be fought, the entire Arendellian Navy was deployed against the entire South Isles Navy. The Arendellians utilized outdated wooden ships such as galleons and battlecruisers, but they were coated with pykrete armor. The South Isles meanwhile used the latest ironclads available. Captain Jack Sparrow was designated as Arendellian fleet Commander while Admiral Norrington led the South Isle forces.

The battle started off in favor of the South Isles, with the ironclads using their superior range to aim high and damage the decks of the Arendellian ships. Captains Sparrow and Barbossa immediately ordered the fleet to close distance and overlap formations with the South Isles. This resulted in a cluster of ships attacking each other with cannons at point-blank range with neither being able to damage the other. Eventually, the combatants were required to begin engaging in boarding party action to move the battle along. During the fighting, Sparrow was able to locate Norrington and the two engaged in a duel. The duel came to an abrupt end when William Turner lodged a hatchet into Norrington's back, killing him.

Around two hours into the battle, a fourth of the South Isles navy broke off from formation and fled for the safe havens of Vlenoya, the Southern Isles, and Weselton for repairs. By the three hour mark, the navy of the South Isles, long regarded as the most powerful on the planet, had been completely decimated. The remaining ships agreed to unconditional surrender.

The Raccoon Campaign Edit

The Sir Raccoon Invasion or "Raccoon Campaign" was the initial set of battles at the beginning of the war. Sir Raccoon promised Queen Elsa that he could conquer the entire nations of the South Isles and Weselton within a month or two's time. He intended to accomplish this with a victorian-era blitzkrieg-style of attack utilizing the newly developed Arentrucks to support the advance of his troops. This move would later be widely regarded as one of the greatest achievements of his officer career due to the sheer amount of land the Royal Guard was able to snatch up in a short timespan.

Battle of Dalmellington Beach Edit

The Battle of Dalmellington Beach was the main Royal Guard invasion of the South Isles. It lasted approximately an hour and resulted in a decisive Arendellian victory. It was overseen and directed by Sir Raccoon.

Battle of Sudbury Edit

The Battle of Sudbury Beach was the Arendellian invasion on the Weselton front. This battle yielded a much higher casualty rate for the Kingdom of Arendelle due to the presence of Weseltonian advanced artillery. After six hours of fighting on the beach, the Royal Guard was able to take it. Commandant Mikkelsen was the Arendellian officer in charge.

The Stalemate Edit

By the second week of the war, the Raccoon Campaign had finally lost momentum. The High Constable was successfully able to march his armies 74 miles inland from Dalmellington beach and demolished all opposing forces that stood in his way with relative ease. The second week of the war brought with it a powerful category 5 hurricane that struck in both the South Isles and Weselton. Heavy rainfalls quickly turned the ground into mud and muck. The Arendellian Royal Guard became unable to move their Arentrucks and horse-drawn carriages through the sloppy ground and supplies began to encounter difficulty reaching the front. This prompted Sir Raccoon to order his forces to dig in at Orrinshire. King Eric fired General Schrøder and made Prince Hans into Supreme Commander of the South Isles Army. Prince Hans immediately turned the retreating army around and had them dig in facing the Arendellian forces. At this point, the South Isles Army began the regular deployment of chlorine gas to support their attacks. This resulted in the South Isles managing to regain some ground under the leadership of Hans.

Battle of Orrinshire Part IEdit

The category 5 hurricane known as "Hurricane Alexandra" swept across the South Isles and Weselton with winds exceeding well over 185 MPH. It brought the momentum of Sir Raccoon's armies screeching to a halt and caused both sides to have to settle down and fight it out in the mud and trenches. Prince Hans capitalized upon the opportunity brought by the hurricane to launch a series of counterattacks that began to push the Royal Guard back. He was successfully able to regain a total of 5 miles within one day and threatened to push Arendelle completely out of the region of Orrinshire. He utilized both chlorine gas and newly developed airplanes equipped with machine guns and bombs against the Arendellians with effective results.

The situation became dire as Groot's delivery convoy tried to keep the Royal Guards on the frontline steadily supplied with weapons and ammunition. Presley, Kristoff, and he would become caught up in the fighting when Sir Raccoon ordered all men within a 10 mile radius to be thrown into the trenches to hold the line. Things became so bad that field nurses were even armed. Despite all odds, the Royal Guard persevered and was able to retake the support line. At that point Sir Raccoon and Princess Anna arrived with reinforcements. Princess Anna had earlier refused the opportunity to flee the planet and take refuge with Yulair. She stated that she would not leave the South Isles until the fight was no longer the Royal Guard's. This would earn her the approval of both the military and the populace of Arendelle as she demonstrated her willingess to commit to the cause. At the end of the day, Arendelle once more controlled the parapet and was back in the clear.

The Maplebrook Massacre Edit

File:Arendelle soldier party is over.jpg

On July 25th, 2015, the Chevalier Party was responsible for carrying out a terrorist attack on the mill town of Maplebrook. The town of Maplebrook was located in Central Arendelle. The majority of it's populace was employed by the local Arentruck factory. With the reputation of the party irreversibly damaged, Gaston and Cinderella sought to sabotage the Arendellian war machine in order to assist the Kingdom of the South Isles in winning the war.

They intended to accomplish this by shutting down the production of Arentrucks. Maplebrook's Arentruck factory was churning out more than 39% of the total number of vehicles being produced and became the prime target. The remaining members of the Chevalier Militia that managed to escape from Mirefield or were not present at that particular battle regrouped and launched a guerilla-style attack upon the entire settlement. Maplebrook's garrison consisted of only five Royal Guards, who lacked the infrastructure to deal with an attack of this magnitude. The Chevaliers killed all civilians they came across and even deployed chlorine gas at some point during the massacre. The factory and surrounding buildings were razed to the ground.

Müller's March Edit

Commandant Lillegard had begun making plans to capture the city of Poltragow in Vlenoya, but his forces were detected by local settlers. Ultimately the attack was called off and his forces retreated back to Arendellian territory. General Müller of the South Isles reinforced the city of Poltragow with additional defenses and troops before setting off to chase Lillegard. The two armies would eventually begin clashing on the border. The South Isle forces were significantly more experienced from the prior colonial battles with the Minotaurs. Thus many of the battles were in favor of the South Isles colonial forces. By the time of the Maplebrook Massacre, General Müller had pushed the Arendellians as far back as the penal colony of Violl's Island.

Battle of Sharnwick Edit

The Battle of Sharnwick shared many similarities with the Battle of Orrinshire. Like Orrinshire, Sharnwick was a cluster of trench battles that took place due to the Arendellian army running out of momentum. Commandant Mikkelsen was only able to march 20 miles inland from Sudbury beach before hurricane Alexandria struck. After which point Generals Bradford and Fischer were able to gain the upperhand and drive his forces all the way back to Sudbury beach as Sir Raccoon feared would happen at Orrinshire. Despite continuous reinforcements landing upon the beach and marching inland toward the front, no additional ground would be gained by the Arendellians until more than two weeks later.

Operation: Thin Ice Edit

Operation Thin Ice was a last-ditch effort by the Arendellian Royal Guard to conquer all resistance in Weselton. The Operation was drawn up by Sir Raccoon and Commandant Mikkelsen during the fifth week of the Arendellian War of Unification. It became painfully obvious after the Battle of Sharnwick that the Royal Guard would be unable to advance without deploying overwhelming numbers of troops into battle. The Constabulary approved a draft that saw around 5,000,000 Royal Guard conscripts moved to Sudbury Beach in Weselton. The conscripts consisted mostly of young boys between the ages of 16 and 20. They had been thoroughly brainwashed with government propaganda and were eager to fight for their country. The primary objective was to break through the Sudbury-Sharnwick line at all costs. There was to be no retreat. Any man caught doing so was to be executed by their NCO. Sir Raccoon ordered Mikkelsen to suppress the strongest portions of the enemy entrenchment with artillery fire starting exactly one day in advance. At the twenty-four hour mark, the attack signal was given and all 5,000,000 of the conscripts were thrown into no man's land to take the enemy parapet. Casualties were enormous, but the conscripts didn't let up. They made it into the enemy parapet, but didn't stop there. They continued pushing more than a hundred miles beyond that point. General Fischer was killed in action when shrapnel from an artillery shell struck him in the neck. Weseltonian forces were completely unprepared for the Arendellian offensive and never quite caught back up.

The young Arendellian boys were exposed to machine gun fire, airstrikes, and chlorine gas. Gas masks were under supplied and so many of the conscripts resorted to tying urine-soaked cloths around the lower halves of their faces. (The ammonia in urine acts as a filter that protects against chlorine gas.) Weseltonian soldiers noted that the gas attacks only seemed to make the Royal Guards more angry and fearsome. The Maplebrook Massacre meant that Arentruck production had been severely diminished. Supply lines were maintained almost entirely by carriage and runners. In the event a soldier ran out of ammo, he simply picked up the weapon of a fallen comrade or enemy before pressing onward. After five days of savage fighting, the Royal Guard arrived on the doorstep of the capital of Weselton and interrupted their parliament mid-session. The government of Weselton ended up agreeing to an unconditional surrender at the gunpoint of Royal Guard forces. The Arendellian Army Staff considered Operation Thin Ice to be the biggest fluke of the century. Throughout the entire week that the Operation had taken place, organization was a clusterfuck at best. It became extremely difficult to determine where units were and getting orders out to them even more-so. Despite this, the Arendellians still managed to achieve victory through sheer determination and NCO leadership. The immense success of the operation would lead to Sir Raccoon drafting plans for Operation: Sledgehammer in the South Isles.

Operation: Sledgehammer Edit

Operation Sledgehammer was drafted up by Sir Raccoon during the sixth week of the war. It was to hammer the final nail into the coffin of the South Isles. He intended to defeat Prince Hans's forces by doing the following:

  1. Tunnel underneath the South Isles's parapet and place 40,000 kegs of gunpowder.
  2. Deploy prototype Tiger tanks on the Orrinshire front to support an infantry charge of 2,000,000 men.
  3. Have the 441st division attack from the east.
  4. Have the 442nd division attack from the west.
  5. Encircle and entrap the South Isles Army.
  6. March north toward Solibourne to take the capital.

The tunnel started underneath the Arendellian trenches and ran out underneath no man's land. It was bored through the ground using a specialized drilling machine. It took four days in total to reach underneath the South Isles trenches. After which point, Sir Raccoon had to put his plans on pause until the kegs of gunpowder could arrive from Central Arendelle. In the meantime, rumors began to circulate that the South Isles had completed or were nearing the completion of an atomic bomb. The South Isles had also begun producing faster and more technologically advanced aircraft that once more threatened Arendellian grip on Orrinshire.

The South Isles became more desperate to win the war after Weselton had been defeated. Both Weselton and the South Isles had started up drafts during the second week of the war, but this new development caused the South Isles to enact a new draft that conscripted 65% of the adult male population ages 20 - 42 and 80% of the adult female population ages 20 - 26. The purpose of the new draft was to rapidly replace their losses. The South Isles economy plummeted and their currency became virtually worthless. The government seized control of all commerce and began rationing food and supplies to citizens.

Planning for Operation Sledgehammer would eventually be taken over by Yulairian forces on July 29th, 2015. The Yulairians discarded Sir Raccoon's battleplans for Operation Sledgehammer and instead substituted their own. That battle would later be known as the "Battle of Orrinshire Part III".

Tolworth Estate Meeting Edit

Commandant Lillegard called a temporary ceasefire with Governor Beckett and General Müller to discuss potential peace terms in Vlenoya. Sir Raccoon had granted Lillegard the authority to broker a deal with South Isles forces in Vlenoya. This was so that the Arendellian Royal Guard could focus their efforts upon Orrinshire. Arendelle offered Vlenoya fairer peace terms than they had offered Weselton, but Beckett did not take the bait. He requested that he be allowed to speak with Sir Raccoon or Princess Anna in order to learn more of the Yulairians. Lillegard informed Beckett that he would attempt to arrange a meeting with one of them. Sir Raccoon refused to allow Princess Anna to leave his side to go to Vlenoya and he himself was unable to do meet with Beckett due to his obligations at the front.

Yulairian Campaign Edit

Air Battle of Solibourne Edit

The first recorded air battle in Arendellian history took place in the skies above the city of Solibourne on July 29th, 2015 when Yulairian forces made their entry into the war. Two pairs of Yulairian A-22's dueled a squadron of 24 or so of the South Isles's prototype jet fighters. The prototypes proved unable to match the A-22's in speed and firepower and were defeated.

Battle of Orrinshire Part II Edit

July 29th, 2015 saw Sir Raccoon relieved of command over the South Isles front. Yulairian forces entered the fray and restored Queen Elsa's authority. Elsa's first order of business was to fire all members of the Constabulary and any troublemakers within the Army Staff. Yulairian Corporal Finch effectively assumed control over any allied forces in Orrinshire and ordered the Arendellian Army staff to arrange a retreat back to Dalmellington Beach.

100,000 Royal Guard stragglers were still present at the Arendellian lines three days after. Prince Hans deployed additional prototype war machines to break the stalemate in the form of spider walkers. The South Isles Army took moderate losses, but were able to successfully take the trenches in their entirety. Sir Groot was killed in action when he battled an enemy jet fighter one-on-one to ensure the escape and subsequent survival of his squad.

Assassination Attempt Edit

On August 3rd, Duke Gaston ordered his mysterious assassin to kill Queen Elsa and Princess Anna in order to throw the Arendellian government into chaos with the dissolution of the Royal Council and Constabulary. The assassin nearly succeeded, but was thwarted by the efforts of Sir Raccoon, who was killed. Despite having forced the High Constable to resign only hours earlier, Queen Elsa expressed regret in having done so. A national day of mourning was declared and the Arendellian flag flew at half-staff. Elsa also made sure that the High Constable was afforded full military honors in burial.

Battle of Violl's Island Edit

The colonial forces of the South Isles, under the command of General Müller, launched an invasion of Violl's Island close to the same time that the High Constable been killed in Central Arendelle. The battle lasted a total of three hours and Commandant Lillegard was killed when the Arendellian fortress was bombed by biplanes. Müller's forces were repelled from the Island when Captain Barbossa broke through the Isles's naval blockade and arrived with much needed supplies and reinforcements. From that point forward, Barbossa assumed command of the Arendellian colonial forces.

Battle of Orrinshire Part III Edit

The Battle of Orrinshire Part III took place on August 8th, 2015. Yulairian and Illesan forces launched a major offensive that broke the South Isles's hold over the region of Orrinshire. Yulairians were able to establish decisive air superiority at the very beginning of the battle. The South Isles Army fought desperately to maintain control on the ground with mixed success, but were ultimately bested by their opponents and forced to retreat back to their original set of trenches.

During the second half of the battle, morale began to quickly deteriorate. NCOs and Officers were having a difficult time keeping their men on the front line against the Yulairians. Eventually an incident led to an NCO shooting two of his subordinates. This started a chain reaction of fights between NCOs and enlisted men. The fighting was put to a stop by the South Isles's sturmtruppen. After the fights were resolved, Prince Hans met with the Yulairians in no man's land and agreed to their terms of surrender.

Operation: Ring of Fire Edit

Operation Ring of Fire was a joint operation between the newly created Royal Marines and Royal Intelligence. Royal Intelligence had earlier discovered that Cinderella had transferred her wealth to the village of Darrimore in Central Arendelle. Some investigation by Agent Dunny revealed that Duke Gaston owned a residence in the village under a different alias.

Royal Marines deployed in a circular perimeter of two-hundred or so men around Gaston's farm. MG nests and sharpshooters were stationed throughout the treeline. Royal Intelligence sent in Agents Dunny, Marco, and Russel to confirm that Gaston or Cinderella were within the building. If they discovered evidence of their presence, the agents were to signal the Royal Marines from the farmhouse windows with a pair of signal flags.

Some degree of time passed before the agents gave the signal. The Royal Marines immediately began opening fire upon the farmland with their MG nests. The Chevalier Militia was caught completely off-guard by the attack and attempted to hide within the cornfields. Having expected this, the Marines set the cornfields ablaze, eliminating any chance the Militia had to hide.

An Arendellian Tiger tank began rolling up the road toward the farmhouse and destroyed the barn, which was being used for cover by the enemy. Royal Marines and Intelligence Agents marched side-by-side onto the property and began finishing off the enemy's wounded with bullets before kicking in the front door to the farmhouse. Some CQB broke out, but all enemies were eliminated. The three intelligence agents that had infiltrated the farmhouse had captured Cinderella and turned her over to the marine forces. The mission was an overwhelming success with no friendly casualties taken.

Battle of the Necropolis Edit

The Necropolis was an ancient cemetery that dominated 44 square acres of the region of Orrinshire. It was located exactly 10 or so miles behind the South Isles's front lines during the Battles of Orrinshire. When it became evident early in the war that the Battle of Orrinshire would be dragging on for a significant amount of time, the King of the South Isles began looking for a quicker means of transporting supplies to the trenches. Fearing the possibility of Yulairian involvement in the war, the Army Staff opted to begin work on an underground metrorail system. It was to link up with nearby villages, travel underneath the Necropolis, and end at the frontlines.

Unknownst to the South Isles, the long-lost Vampire Civilization had created a thriving underground metropolis underneath the Necropolis that had been in existence for centuries. Metrorail operations required the South Isles Army to begin boring through catacomb walls until they accidently uncovered the Vampire metropolis. The Vampires feared that the South Isles Army had come there to finish off their species and reacted aggressively.

Vampire and South Isles forces clashed underground resulting in one fourth of the South Isles 2nd Home Army being killed in action. General Ipsen was also killed during the clashes. The Vampires would have eradicated the rest of the South Isles 2nd Home Army if not for the intervention of the Yulairians, who mediated an end to the fighting.

End of the Hobgoblin Crisis Edit

The Great War saw the end of the centuries long Hobgoblin Crisis on 8/15/15. Royal Intelligence and the Royal Marines surrounded a Hobgoblin pow-wow up in the mountains in order to ensure Arendellian negotiators would be unharmed. The Hobgoblins were known to kill messengers and diplomats if given the opportunity. Gandalf and Queen Elsa successfully convinced the Hobgoblins to accept a deal that would grant their species a land reservation in Vlenoya.

Battle of Solibourne Edit

Yulairian air superiority was able to surround the South Isles 1st Fleet thirty miles off the coast of Solibourne. Tired of fighting what appeared to be a pointless war, Admiral Luxemberg surrendered to the Yulairians without a shot fired. The Yulairians would later storm Fontaino Beach as they prepared to move in on the capital.

Meanwhile the South Isles had finished their prototype atomic bomb. King Eric and the South Isles Army Staff had opted to drop the bomb upon Dalmellington Beach. The Arendellian Royal Guard had been made by the Yulairians to fall back to Dalmellington some degree of time earlier. There were still Royal Guards there in the millions. If successful, the South Isles had intentions to create additional bombs to drop upon major Arendellian cities. Luckily the atomic bomb was intercepted by Yulairian pilots Marissa Beam and Sam Whackwee. Yulairian paratroopers took over the airfield shortly thereafter.

Fierce fighting took place at the South Isles Palace as fanatical soldiers, the King's Blackguard, and the Chevalier Militia began rallying to defend the King. Many commissioned officers and army staff members committed suicide by gunshot and cyanide. Duke Gaston was killed by his own assassin, Corvo, upon the fourth floor of the palace. Corvo then detonated microcharges throughout the palace that caused the place to begin coming down. South Isles personnel and Yulairians ran for their lives to escape the collapsing structure. King Eric entered the fray in his prototype mech walker just as some of his forces had started surrendering. The King battled Yulairian forces for roughly a half hour before his vehicle succumbed to catastrophic systems failure. He was killed when his vehicle exploded as a result of overheating. At the end of the day, Yulair was victorious and held complete control over the region, thus bringing an abrupt end to the Great War.

Aftermath Edit

The following is a list of notable changes that the end of the war brought about:

  • The dissolution of the Kingdom of the South Isles.
  • The dissolution of the Duchy of Weselton.
  • The eradication of the Chevalier Party.
  • The Kingdom of Arendelle is recognized as the world government.
  • The regions of the South Isles and Weselton experience financial ruin.
  • Slavery is abolished.
  • The Minotaurs and Kobolds are allowed to return back to their homes in Vlenoya.
  • The Hobgoblins begin their journey to Oriatar Island with Arendellian sponsorship and aid.
  • The Kingdom of Arendelle establishes the Necropolis as a reservation for the Vampires.
  • Yulairization of the planet is begun.
  • The "Old" Arendellian Royal Guard is reorganized into the Arendellian National Defense Force (A.N.D.F.) as part of Yulairization.

Legacy and memory Edit

The Arendellian Great War of Unification was the most brutal conflict that the planet had seen in well over a thousand years. The rapid technological innovation of terrifyingly deadly new weapons coupled with outdated military strategies created a nightmarish battlefield with unimaginable death toll. The war claimed the lives of around twelve-million soldiers and nearly a million civilians in the single month that it took place. Many soldiers returned home with severe trauma or shell-shock. P.T.S.D. was diagnosed in a substantial number of the South Isles's veterans.

The Arendellian government authorized the creation of the "National Great War Memorial" on a plot of land outside of the capital a few days after the end of the war. It was to be a grandiose marble and brick rotunda built in the neoclassical architectural style. The names of all Royal Guards, Yulairian personnel, and Illesan marines K.I.A were to be inscribed upon plaques within. The memorial itself was to be surrounded by a vast garden of poppies. The reason being that poppies were the only type of plant observed to be thriving in the war-torn barren lands of Orrinshire and Sharnwick post-war.

A similar memorial was authorized by the Arendellian government to be built in Orrinshire to honor the dead of the South Isles military. The South Isles memorial was noticeably more humble. A single bronze statue of a tarp-covered body with a pickelhaube and rifle resting upon it was placed upon a circular stone foundation. The pedestal that the statue rested upon was inscribed with the following phrase, "We died so that the South Isles could live, so let us live on through you." Just north of the statue, the foundation is lined with South Isles flags and marble plaques that list the names of the South Isles military personnel killed in the war. A garden of poppies surround the memorial like the one in Central Arendelle.

Public opinion of the war varied according to territory, region, and background. Most Arendellians viewed the war as a necessary measure to end South Isles aggression and establish a lasting peace on the planet. The "Old" Royal Guard was horrified by the brutality of trench warfare. Young conscripts meanwhile viewed the war as the "best time" of their lives and were honored to have had the opportunity to serve their nation and fight in the war to end all wars on Arendelle.

In the South Isles, support for the war came mostly from the royals, aristocrats, and army officers. The populace itself was optimistic until around the third week of the war. It was around that point that the poor and middle class began to regard the war as a pointless effort and a massive waste of life. An entire generation of young men in the South Isles were slaughtered in the millions in battles that would prove ultimately futile.

Trivia Edit

  • The Arendellian Great War of Unification is the Arendellian equivalent of World War I.
  • The attempted Chevalier Revolution that took place during RP sessions #32 and #33 had the potential to radically alter history by establishing a new form of government for the Kingdom of Arendelle. It would've been ideologically similar to the South Isles and would have established Gaston as Archduke or King.
  • The Arendellian Great War of Unification is the second most destructive war in the history of the planet of Arendelle. It is only surpassed by the Mai-ben'Mach.
  • The South Isles's war machine began adapting during the sixth week of the war to operate even with the value of the mark failing. The government seized control of all production and began rationing supplies between citizens and soldiers.
  • It is unclear who would've won the Great War without Yulairian intervention. The war could've easily gone either way. Sir Raccoon was close to breaking the stalemate and advancing upon Solibourne, but the South Isles was nearing completion of the atomic bomb.
