The King is Dead, Long Live the King?

Ladies and gentlemen, people of the Grecian Empire... King Alexandros II of Greece is dead. An official spokesperson of the monarchy has confirmed our King passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. All flags on governmental buildings will be lowered to half mast for the duration of the period of national mourning, commemorating the life of the fifty-six year old King. Television broadcasts have been adjusted to

Succeeding the King will be his twenty-three year old son, Crown Prince Alexandros III. Though his official inauguration will take place after the interment of the King, he will unofficially manage the day to day affairs within the Empire, aided by the King's old advisers.

Foul Play Suspected!

This channel has managed to get a hold of some classified documents regarding King Alexandros II. It seems that his personal physicians, while preparing the body of the King for burial, have come across an irregularity and are currently performing a full autopsy on the body of the King. Though vehemently denied through official channels, our contacts within the palace mention there is a possibility some terrorist groups are to blame.

In other news, tensions between Grecians and Turks are on the rise again, the latter seeing the death of King Alexandros II as an opportunity to once again become independent city-states again, and follow their own path. Prince Alexandros III has called to the population to remain calm during these troubled times, but it cannot be denied that both camps are gaining support at an alarming rate.

Riots Throughout the Empire!

A letter was sent to all news stations of the Grecian Empire. In it, it is described that the King was murdered using a pellet coated in ricin, along with several other details known only to insiders in the Palace that were aware of the nature of the King's injuries. Reluctantly, a spokesperson has confirmed the contents of the letter to be true, in the meantime calling the armed forces to assist the police in quelling any riots that break out.

The assistance of the Army ended up having the opposite effect however, as many rioters turned themselves against the police as they struggled to keep the two camps separate. Heavy rioting has broken out in several cities -- both Grecian and Turkish -- and in an attempt to stop a full blown Civil War, King Alexandros III has called the British Empire for some much needed support as the Grecian Empire threatens to fall apart.

OOC: I did invade you you know.

IC: Northasian soldiers will take advantage of the riots in the Anatolian and Istanbul fronts. Great progress is being made as stealth fighter squadrons batter the capital of the Grecian Empire. SSMs have also been launched at Istanbul and Athens, as well as Thrace and Thebes.

OOC: thats not how ERP works.

IC: Seeing rioting and general anarchy, Northasian soldiers have received additional orders to establish an occupying government and a ban on looting and violation of civilian's rights.

OOC: Then you need to see this... Nevermind...

(05:34:15 PM) Drakedeath[iAA]: You win Greece

(05:34:26 PM) Drakedeath[iAA]: Please standby for graniteknight !@#$storm

IC: The Grecian Empire has been completely occupied by Northasian forces. We are currently in the process of coordinating a local government in the area. However, areas surrounding the Bosporous Strait, including Istanbul and Canalkke will be administrated as parts of the Russian Federation's Samara Oblast.

A flag emblem which nobody had seen from a long time was flying again, for so long, around 550 years at least this flag hadn't seen the light of day, yet now was its time. A squirrelly figure took to the stand and announced the following to the crowd:

"My friends, my colleagues, my countrymen, please lend me your ears. Our government has betrayed us with false lies and promises too good to be true. They have lead us down a path of destruction of anarchy. Therefore, we have decided to declare ourselves the true governance of the formerly known Grecian Empire, and hereby wish to announce that we have struck a deal with the magnificent brethren from the North. We have decided, as a result of us gaining independence, to hand over key areas of interest to our friends as an act of goodwill. Anybody who wishes to leave said areas may do so if they wish, and they shall be rehomed and if there are any issues, they shall be rectified. Before you, my friends, I present to you a map of the new BYZANTINE EMPIRE!

We shall all hail our new ruler through this most excellent of occasions, Leo VII!"

"The Byzantine Empire looks more stable than the Greek Empire. Dare we ask, what will be status of Southern Italy and Albania within the Empire?"

"Both of the aforementioned regions are historically held by the Byzantine Empire and are pretty much integral to our nation."

"Italy may have been very well once part of the Byzantine Empire a thousand years ago, but the circumstances leading to its modern acquisition were nothing more than your precedent's state feeling up to the British and has done absolutely nothing in regards to the territory, either."

"Unfortunately, our predecessors were, as the saying goes, flying off the rails on the crazy train. However, the land in question is sovereign Byzantium soil and therefore, not open to discussion in regards to territorial aspirations."
