The Anglo-Scottish War was a conflict fought between the Kingdom of England and the Scottish Republic, supported by the New Irish Republic. The war began when a newly recovered Kingdom of England had launched a full-scale invasion of Scotland in an attempt to annex the entire region as part of their long-term goal of the British Isles under their banner. The Scottish defended themselves and the NIR joined in to defend their ally. The war led to increased Scottish militarism as well as the taking of the Isle of Man by the NIR, and once again crippled the Kingdom of England.

BackgroundEdit

The Kingdom of England had began an expansion campaign sometime in the late 2150s following its formation and quickly began expanding and annexing various nearby towns, settlements, and regions eventually growing to encompose all of western England, exluding Wales. In the year 2162, the English forces invaded Wales and in response, the Welsh Liberation Front was quickly formed and waged a war of independence against the invading English forces instigating the Welsh Rebellion which would go one for six years total. During that time, the best knight that the English had, Sir Adam Richardson III, was killed during the Second Battle of Cardiff and Welsh offensives began driving back the English forcing them to sign the Treaty of Cardiff leaving England with only a mere fraction of what it had at the height of the rebellion. The kingdom was also left severly weakened as the resources spent on the war were wasted and too costly to replenish making rebuilding the nation a difficult task that dominated much fo King Alhwald I's reign over England.

During this era of reconstruction, King Alhwald instituted new policies which segregated many ethnic Welsh royal subjects from their English neighbors forcing them into ghettos and any citizen with Irish background, traits, or even accent was arrested and forced into serfdom as punishment in retaliation for the English defeat at the hands of the Welsh and their allies in the New Irish Republic. By 2197, England had fully recovered and planned to invade and conquere Scotland to make up for their defeat in Wales.

HistoryEdit

Initial InvasionEdit

The invasion of Scotland had began when English troops marched into southern regions of former Scotland and began conqering them as part of their new empire. The English forces then proclaimed the establishment of the Dominion of South Scotland and continued to march up north where they eventually engaged in further combat with the military forces of the Scottish Republic, which claimed control over all of geographical Scotland. Many towns and cities in the southern provinces fell and the Scottish forces were forced to retreat into central and northern Scotland and established defensive positions for the inevitable English offensive.
