Netterholz's Coup

Military action


Believing that his days as chancellor were numbered, Valten Netterholz came up with a plan to extend the length of his term. On the 1st of Tiennor, around a month before the election day, Netterholz seized control of Velkberge Castle with the strength of the Ausselian Democrats' paramilitary groups. Seeing the move as a threat to democracy, the Silver Alliance, the Peasants' Party of Aussel and the Independent Monarchist of Aussel joined forces to storm the castle. Outnumbered and out of ideas, the chancellor took his own life to prevent his capture.
