The Siege of La'Victoria (Creeperian Spanish: Sito de La'Victoria) was a military engagement of the Creeperian Civil War between the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council and the National Council for Peace and Order. The siege was the lengthiest military engagement of the entire civil war, lasting over 15 years.

The city of La'Victoria was and still is considered a "crown jewel" of a Creeperian city due to its history of being established upon the ruins of the Deltinian capital city, Almadinat Almuqadasa, in 1326. As such, the Imperial Council attempted to keep the city at all costs while the National Council attempted to take the city at all costs, leading to the siege of the city dragging out for over an unnecessarily long 15 years. Additionally, for most of the civil war, La'Victoria was the only major city held by the Imperial Council in the department of San Luís, which had mostly been taken by the National Council.
