The Meremaa Civil War was a conflict that was a part of a series of conflict and unrest in North Gondwana during the 1980s and 1990s, ranging from conventional warfare, civil war and insurgence. The Meremaa Civil War was a 4 year conflict in the country of Meremaa between the monarchist government and the republican rebels; the official name of the monarchist faction being the United Duchy of Meremaa and the official republican faction being the Republican Forces of Meremaa. The conflict began after a series of labour strikes and political instability in Meremaa, with the government's brutal usage of the army to put down the strikes starting the civil war. Armed rebels took over the region of Morzk on 29 April 1990 and Tyr Vaines declared the formation of the Republican Forces of Meremaa being set as the official start of the civil war. With the Morstaybishlian Government having already viewed the Grand Duke Telvi II as illegitimate, they condemned Meremaa's goverment attempt to join the NCEF. On 22 May 1990 Morstaybishlian Prime Minister Robert Delari officially declared his support to the republican faction. A day after, the Norgsveltian prime minister convinced King Harald III to support the Meremain Goverment, condemning Morstaybishlian involvement as an "imperialistic and tactical attempt to weaken Norgsveldet", the naval bombardment of the island of Dalmaghar followed, seeing Morstaybishlia's first Augustine-class supercarrier MBS Augustine damaged. As the Civil War went on both factions and allies tried to gain more foreign support, with the republican faction gaining support from across left wing circles and international socialist brigades being formed to help the republican faction. Famous one being the red phoenix brigade, Tieresh volunters that fought under Durakian officers when forming the international socialist brigades. The government gained support from many UCA nations but also foreign conservative monarchist ones, like that of Asendavia. The war is a prime example of continued Norgsveltian-Morstaybishlian rivalries in the region.
