History

Following the Great War, the Ottoman Empire experienced an economic and political backlash, which allowed for their mighty territorial empire to collapse and seek independence. Not having the strength to suppress the rebellions, the Ottomans crumbled internally allowing for the rise of the Seljuks to take hold of what remained in the former Ottoman Empire and crowning a new Sultan.

Despite several setbacks, the economy and military of the Seljuk Empire continues to grow, funding and allowing it to expand into the mighty power it once was before the outbreak of war in the early 20th Century.
