Previous war
Der Bürgerkrieg des Kaiserreiches von Cruor
Next war
The Cruor-Dargonian War
The Second Cruor-Lionheart War was a war between the Republic of Lionheart and Das Kaiserreich der Cruor. The war was started due to the attacks on locations in das Kaiserreich such as der Mittelturm and ports in select cities, the attacks conducted by Lionheart. The Council of Gonzo then met to end up declaring war on Lionheart.

Battles raged on in both Nazshaar and Cruor, and both sides could not get the upper hand on each other in their own land unless it was a small battle or a skirmish. Eventually, Lionheart conducted a full on invasion of the Cruorian continent, which led to months of fighting for Cruor and left Cruorian cities in ruin, however the Cruorians prevailed and pushed the Lionheartians back into Nazshaar. Following the defeat of Lionheart on Cruor, Cruorian soldiers finally reached Lionheart City and attacked, defeating Lionheart in their own capital and ending the war in Cruorian victory.

The Speech

The speech given to the citizens of das Kaiserreich from Kaiser Aztarwyn himself. It was copied onto paper and released to the citizens all over the empire. The official document he had written the speech upon is kept in Hauptsitz.

Dear all of my citizens of das Kaiserreich der Cruor, today on the 18th of Pentember, Year 7 of the Sixth Age, we go to war with Lionheart. On the 31st of Bennath, Year 7 of the Sixth Age, they had attacked our land in a terrorist attack of der Mittelturm, killing many innocents. I am pleased to inform you out of the eleven terrorists, only one remains currently, with no legs or arms. For awhile there had been debates of war, however we took too long. Because we took too long, they decided to make up our mind.

Just yesterday, the Lionheart Navy and Army had attacked the ports of Hauptsitz Stadt and Blutstadt, causing utter chaos as soldiers were destroyed with incoming fire from their warships. Thirteen of our warships had gone down, and many of our men had perished. This was an open act of war, one that shall not go without punishment.

They look to destroy our nation, our home, and our people. For these reasons and these acts of war against us, we must go to war with the Republic of Lionheart. They will suffer our wrath just as our people had in two acts of war, only our wrath will be a hundred times worse. Their people will die. Their soldiers will die. Their land will be destroyed. If I must, I will see to it that their entire nation is ripped to shreds.

And so war it is.

~ Kaiser Aztarwyn Zephon Gonzo
