Great Lakes Wars

The Great Lakes Wars are the series of wars fought between the eastern LaBellean Empire and coalitions of Great Lakes Nations in the 23rd century. LaBelle’s foray into the Great Lakes began with the annexation of minor kingdoms east of the Troyt River in 2205. By invading the Kingdom of Huron during 2205, it sparked a mobilization of Michigan forces in response, resulting in the First Great Lake War. As a consequence of the Empire’s continued incursions, the Second Great Lake War broke out in 2211, concluding the next year with the signing of a major peace settlement.

The Empire’s inhabitants refer to the conflicts as the Lakers Wars, whereas that term is rarely used in the Michigan, where they are known as the LaBellean Wars.
