The Sedan Rebellion, also called The Goat War or the Sedanian War of Independence was a conflict between the forces of Oren and Sedan. Stemming from a land dispute between the Holy Orenian Empire & House de Joannes came the Sedan Rebellion in which House de Joannes declared independence from the Holy Orenian Empire & formed the Principality of Sedan on the 13th of Harren's Folly, the same day that the first significant battle between the two opposing factions occurred.

  • 1811
    • 14th of Godfrey's Triumph, Joseph II, Holy Orenian Emperor issued the Proclamation of 1811 [1] to confiscate the Sedan Manor from Louis de Joannes on multiple claims of criminal offenses, most notably ORC 204.014, creation of a private unauthorized military. Following this proclamation, soldiers of the Imperial State Army were authorized to arrest members of House de Joannes on sight.
    • 2nd of Tobias' Bounty, Imperial State Army Captain Viktoriya Tseczar arrested the youngest son of Louis de Joannes, Caius. After receiving word of the arrest, outraged citizens of the Sedan Manor rallied & stormed the imperial capital of Providence, demanding Caius be released. Oren did not give in to the demands & a bloodless skirmished ensued resulting in the Sedanian failing to rescue Caius, though the aftermath of the skirmish distracted the imperial guards long enough for the boy to escape on his own. After the battle, Sedan & their allies were declared traitors by Oren.
