The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 122
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 122
46. The great war triggered in Griham! (2)
Neither the Confederates nor the Union Army moved first.
It was the Iron Federation, which had newly joined the Ignit Federation.
Iron moved the navy and began to pressure Roteon with the Western Army of the Empire. Then, to stop this, Roteon’s navy moved.
They confronted each other as if they were going to fight right away, but no battle took place.
A skirmish was fought, with both Iron and Roteon avoiding direct combat.
Then the Empire’s Confederate Forces began to move their forces towards the borders of Talos. Contrary to the initial expectation that the eastern army would move, the eastern army of the empire rather moved to the principality.
“It means that Roman’s intervention will be completely blocked.”
Duke of Pires frowned.
“Are you sure there is no Salvator in the Iron Navy?”
“Yes, for sure.”
“Then you are saying that Salvator really went to the Duchy… … .”
The Duke of Pires made a serious expression.
Following the Empire’s Eastern Army, Salvator, Master of Iron, goes to the Principality.
It showed the will of the Empire that it had no intention of interfering with this war because of the Romans.
He sends Salvator, who is still young and inexperienced, to the Principality, and sends the two Masters of the Empire to the southern expedition.
This was what the Empire was aiming for.
“… … Is it as expected?”
The Empire was in no hurry.
Even if it fights, the empire will have the upper hand, and even if it is prepared to hold on to the prison sentence, it will collapse because it cannot control the revolutionary forces infesting the whole country.
In the end, it was the Empire side who could afford it.
So, Roteon prepared a trump card.
“Is there any chance they would have noticed our intentions?”
“It is rare. We have only had contact with them once.”
At the words of the intelligence agent, the Duke of Pires sighed.
The war has already begun.
A visitor came at the moment when he could no longer back down. They were the only ones Roteon believed in now.
Of course, this operation was thoroughly known only to Roteon.
It was unknown what kind of spies might be inside Talos, so they were excluded, and the Holy Kingdom had no choice but to be excluded.
Their guests were absolutely unacceptable from the standpoint of the Holy Land, so the operation was being carried out in secret.
“If only the emperor dies, this fight is our victory.”
Duke Pyres said that while his eyes lit up.
While Roteon made his own preparations, Talos also risked everything with a bone-crushing heart to prepare.
“The moment you see a gap, you have to hit it.”
At the words of King Talos, Duke Cleta lowered her head and replied.
Their goal was the moment when the empire was shaken.
When the war begins in earnest, secret weapons will come out of the secret base they have prepared.
It will disrupt the eastern part of the Empire, and in that moment Talos’ secret will shine.
“Please God bless this kingdom… … .”
At the king’s words, Duke Cletta also silently bowed his head and prayed to God.
* * *
When the war for the future of the Western Continent began in earnest, the Imperial Palace of the Empire was also busy.
The operation proceeded as it had been prepared, but with war, the unexpected always happened.
“the problem is?”
The military minister lowered his head and answered Kariel’s question.
“There is little disturbance within the Empire.”
“How is the economy?”
“It is within the expected range.”
When the Minister of Home Affairs and the Minister of Finance answered in turn, they nodded.
everything is on schedule
That’s why I was more anxious. Before checking the daggers prepared by the southern kingdoms, they had to prepare for the eventuality.
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
“As I said before, prepare to leave with your younger siblings.”
The chancellor’s expression hardened at Kariel’s command.
“You have to be prepared in case something happens.”
At Kariel’s command, the prime minister bit his lip.
The operation has already been carried out.
If so, it is right to be prepared for any contingency.
“… … All right.”
As the chancellor bowed his head, Cariel, who nodded slightly, looked at Tharion.
“What is Roman’s movement?”
“after… … It’s suspicious. There was no communication from the principality?”
It was definitely time for Roman to move.
Nevertheless, it was quiet.
Wingsar’s information network as well as the spies planted in the eastern continent revealed that it was clean.
At Kariel’s question, Tarion shook his head again this time.
The silence of the forces that cannot stand still in the Great War in the Western Continent means that they are hiding something.
I wish I knew what it was in advance, but I wanted to hide it until the end.
In the end, Kariel made a face of regret that they could not know their intentions until the war began in earnest, and checked the current situation once again.
Duke Davier and the Central Army moved to stop Talos, and the Marquis of Achelio and the Imperial Knights, along with the Confederate Army, moved to block Roteon.
As soon as the intelligence service, which was closely watching Griham, heard that the revolutionary forces were gathering, they gathered the troops to the border, so they could cross the border between Talos and Roteon at any time.
Nevertheless, it was still near the border because it was not known what the two kingdoms would have prepared.
“The problem is Sungguk… … What is the probability that the sun sword became a master?”
“It’s more than 70 percent.”
At Tarion’s answer, Kariel sighed.
“What is the odds of the Duke of Walkshire?”
“It’s hard to predict, but… … It is expected to be at a disadvantage.”
It wasn’t long before he rose to the ranks of the Sun Sword or the Duke of Walkshire or the Master.
However, if it was the same level of entry, the sun sword with divine power was advantageous.
While mages needed their own processed magical power, those who used divine power did not have much resistance to accepting other divine powers.
The sun sword was also a master, so he could use aura, but he could also use some divine magic.
Therefore, if you use the holy relic, if you lose strength, you can use divine magic to make an irregular attack.
“It’s a holy thing… … .”
“Still, since Marquis Sicario is there, the balance should be right.”
Marquis Sicario, currently the strongest in the Western Continent.
His strength, superior to that of the pope, would provide some balance.
“I’m still worried.”
I knew very well that not everything went as planned because I had been through it in my previous life.
Conservation of electricity was the top priority for Kariel, as she had to live with the insufficient power.
It was not a real war, and precious power could not be consumed in a war with the countries of the West Continent.
“Tell me to wait as long as possible.”
Kariel, who once again conveyed a request to the Northern Army, was silently lost in thought.
Both the castle and the empire knew each other’s military history to some extent.
A genius who appeared like a comet in the empire.
To hide a powerful sword called Glenn, Kariel sold the Duke of Wilkshire.
He leaked information that the Duke of Walkshire, who had broken through the wall with Kariel’s help, had moved to the Northern Army in secret, while also leaking that Glenn had not yet finished his training in the closed house.
“The secret weapon of the Empire is not yet complete.”
It was the contents of the report obtained by the intelligence department searching for spies in Seongguk.
There were reports that Glenn had not yet mastered, and the Empire was just waiting for him to completely break through the walls.
And this content was shared with the southern kingdoms.
In other words, the Southern Kingdoms and the Holy Kingdom are thinking that the Empire is waiting for Glenn Master to rise.
The strategy of the empire that the Three Kingdoms thought was three.
1. Glenn’s Master Awakening
2. Revolutionary forces seize the south
In a long-term war, the Empire has an unconditional advantage.
Using revolutionary forces to create divisions and to write foreign policies within the Three Kingdoms.
At the same time, it was the Empire’s strategy to accelerate the division while promoting it extensively when Glenn became a Master.
Of course, it was true overall.
But there were also big pitfalls.
“From now on, watch over the southern kingdoms.”
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
Tarion bowed his head in response to Kariel’s command.
Before the war began, Kariel intensively spread the Holy Kingdom.
Through Griham, he succeeded in giving confusion to the southern kingdoms and used the intelligence department centered on the Holy Kingdom.
They brought in spies, used revolutionary forces, and launched massive bribes.
Originally, the strategy would not have worked, but a gap was created as the high-ranking priests were recruited by Roman and the black magicians.
Thanks to that, I was able to be sure about the Holy Kingdom.
‘The sword of the Holy Kingdom is only one solar sword.’
Thanks to this conviction, Kariel was less worried about the Holy Kingdom.
Assuming that the Northern forces were well protected, there was no need to worry about other parts. Rather, Seongguk is a situation where you have to worry about the inside.
It was because there were not one or two people who would show disquieting movements inside if they started a war with the empire.
In the end, without knowing the hidden moves of the southern kingdoms until the end, the imperial army crossed the border.
It had to be because Griham’s situation was not good.
From Griham, which had become a stronghold of the revolutionary forces, a large-scale march toward the southern kingdoms began.
Countless people marched while shouting for revolution, and was it because many people gathered?
Originally, people who were afraid to even show interest began to join the procession one by one.
Two huge processions from Griham.
In the march of the revolutionary forces moving toward the capitals of both countries, people who were dissatisfied with the class system joined one by one, and a huge number of people gathered.
Then, to prevent this, the border guards of the few remaining kingdoms moved, and even the privates of the nobles were mobilized.
As the people of their territory escaped, nobles who tried to stop them also appeared.
In the process, many people were sacrificed, and as many more imperial people were sacrificed than before, the imperial army had no choice but to cross the border.
“The Imperial Army has crossed the border. They are advancing into the capital with the protesters.”
“Make the most of your time!”
There was only one order from the Roteon Army.
to make the most of your time.
In contrast, Talos had no orders.
It is up to you to make up your own mind and act accordingly.
Criminal groups that were thought to have been eradicated had no choice but to do so because even the chain of command did not work properly.
Both kingdoms fell into chaos as the administrative system collapsed, and it was the Imperial Army that took care of this.
「Imperial army defeated the hordes of demons! The savior of Talos?」
“Imperial forces distributing supplies to the people of Roteon.”
The Imperial Army, who earns the favor of the people by doing what the two kingdoms should do.
Is it because of that? Until now, the people of the kingdom, who had only thought of the revolutionary forces as beings that the empire had infiltrated to devour the southern kingdom, changed their minds.
“If this is the case, I’d rather be absorbed into the Empire.”
“Is this my country?”
“Let’s make a revolution! Let’s join us too!”
The provinces of Talos and Roteon were almost swallowed up by the Empire as even those who remained loyal to the kingdom to the end began to join the wave of revolution.
If time passes like this, it will naturally become the territory of the empire.
Nevertheless, both kingdoms were silent.
As if they were waiting for something, they gathered around the capitals of each country and waited for the imperial army.
While the situation in the south was going in favor of the Empire, the Seongguk and the Imperial Army continued a fierce battle.
“Be sure to hold on.”
The Duke of Wilkshire nodded slightly at Marquis Sicario’s words.
Knowing that it would be a tough fight, the Duke of Wilkshire gritted his teeth and raised his magic to deal with the sun sword.
After going through several battles, he confirmed that the Sunsword had the upper hand, so he put all his pride aside and devoted himself only to tying down the Holy Knights of the Sunsword with the magic corps.
Is it because of that?
The battle situation flowed sluggishly without major damage, with the Paladins, the pride of the Holy Kingdom, tied to their feet.
At this rate, there is a high possibility that the empire will flow into a long-term war as desired.
