Cromwell and Reconquista's War Council

The Reconquista was a group of Albion nobles that attempted to unite Halkeginia through war in preparation for an eventual invasion of the Holy Land.

The first, and only country to fall to the Reconquista was Albion. The leader of the movement, Oliver Cromwell, rallied various nobles of Albion to rebel against the monarchy. This new faction would eventually win the civil war against the royalists with the deaths of both King James and his son Prince Wales.

After the defeat of the royalists, the Reconquista used Albion as a foothold to invade the Halkeginian mainland. The Reconquista-controlled Albion first invaded Tristain at Tarbes, where it was defeated by Louise de La Vallière. Cromwell was captured by Tristain at this battle, and later died in incarceration.

After the death of Cromwell, his deputy, Sheffield, became the new leader of Albion. An alliance of Tristinian and Germanian forces then invaded Albion. The allied forces—later with the addition of Gallia—defeated Albion, which was left ravaged due to Sheffield's policies during the war.

It was later revealed that Sheffield was the familiar of Joseph of Gallia, who used the Reconquista, and to that extent Albion, as part of a larger plan to conquer Halkeginia.

Reconquista is the name of the reconquest by the Christians of the Iberian Peninsula from the hands of the Muslims, from 718 (or 722) to 1492. The event would not only lead to the end of the European Caliphates but the beginning of Spanish history.
