Geopolitical Revolution: In Year 1, one of the great geopolitical revolutions of the modern age began, with fronts in America, Europe and the Middle East. This global revolution was initiated by the birth and coalescence of "fraternal twin" revolutionary epicenters in Year 1.
The revolution was triggered in one of these epicenters by a meeting in Versailles, France, as a violent reaction to both the economic injustice of a leading world power and the excesses of the French government.
The revolutionary mass political movement in this epicenter nation employed mob warfare in the capital city to topple the preexisting monarchy in Year 1 and soon after found a new democratic republic.
This movement quickly coalesced into an armed resistance against a belligerent foreign empire that was invading the post-monarchial revolutionary country in order to establish a dictatorship.
