Description

By the early Seventeenth Century the Roman Catholic Church was a significant factor in world politics, and a lightning rod for political disputes with its fellow Catholic nations around the world. The leaders of the Catholic nations began to find themselves increasingly competing with the church for territory, rather than cooperating with the church on matters of religion. In 1615, a summit was held, and, by the vote of the attending cardinals, the Church was split in two - a religious branch led by the Pope (the Church Spiritual), and a political branch led by the Grand-Master of the Order of the Knights of St. John (a.k.a. the Teutonic Knights, the Church Militant). The political branch is known today as the Kingdom of New Granada and retains very close ties with the Papacy.

In 1731 (T201) this heavily slave-dependent country suffered an anti-slavery anti-Catholic anti-establishment revolt that started in Timbira and quickly spread. With much of the leadership abroad ambitious underlings also took this opportunity to seize control of the government, though this fared badly. The end result was a three way division of the country: the Catholic (but Lencolar-friendly) Kingdom of Caquetio in the northwest, the Lencolar slave-led People's Republic of Zion in the north, and the rump Catholic slave-holding Kingdom of New Granada in the south.

Still to be written.
