The Savoyard Succession Crisis, also called the Daelish Uprising, was an internal conflict fought between the Pro-Regency forces under the command of Vasileia Basrid, and the Pro-Lucienist forces under the command of Prince Lucien of Savoy. The conflict was started after the events of the Revolution of San Luciano, in which a primarily Myrinian-Freimarkish crowd overthrew the Regency of Catherine, Princess of Savoy and declared Lucien, son of Olivier II, Prince of Savoy as the new sovereign. At first, the conflict was relatively low-level with the majority of Savoy supporting the Lucienist cause. However, after an incident between Pro-Lucien forces and the neutral Daelish, the Lordship of Daeland declared support for the Pro-Regency forces and renounced its previously stated neutrality.
