The Creeperian Crusade (Creeperian Spanish: Cruzada Creeperiano) was the period in the history of the Southern Landmass of about 115 years between the establishment of Creeperopolis in 1231 and the fall of the Shata' Albahr to the expanding Creeperian kingdom in 1345. The collapse of the Caliphate of Deltino and its successors would allow Creeperopolis to become the dominant nation on the landmass.

The Crusade was called for by King Alfonso I in 1231 and was approved of by Pope Gregorio IX.

Deltino

The Caliphate of Deltino (734AD-1326) had difficulties establishing full control over Creeperopolis as the Creeperian inhabitants were overwhelmingly Creeperian Catholic and refused to be subjects of the Islamic caliphate. The Creeperian inhabitants also wished for their kingdom to continue, free from Deltinian control. As soon as the Old Kingdom fell, the Deltinians established the Emirate of Rabadsun as a Creeperian client state with Rodolfo I as the Emir of the emirate.

In 1231, Caliph Suleiman II died and was succeeded by his son, Suleiman III. Suleiman III reinstated laws revoked by his predecessors which allowed the practicing of any religion other than Deltinian Islam in 1231. He replaced the laws he revoked with the "One-Religion Decree," a decree which mandated that only Deltinian Islam could be legally practiced. This was met by resistance the Creeperian Catholics of the Emirate of Rabadsun. Then Emir Alfawnasu III used the basis of the "One-Religion Decree" to declare independence for the Emirate of Rabadsun as a Catholic Creeperian kingdom, called the Kingdom of Creeperopolis, on February 8, 1231.

Creeperopolis

Creeperopolis was originally founded as a kingdom in 537AD by Felipe I. The kingdom was mostly confined to the city of Yerkink, present day Salvador, for most of its existence.

Felipe I reigned from 537AD-568AD. He was succeeded by his son Armando I who reigned from 568AD-598AD, when he was assassinated by his brother, Fernándo I. Fernándo I only reigned from 598AD-601AD when he was executed on orders of Armando I's son who became Armando II. He reigned from 601AD-656AD. He was toppled by the son of Fernándo I, Felipe II. Felipe II only reigned from 656AD-661AD when Armando II raised an army to retake the throne. He was again overthrown by Felipe II in 667AD, but he was himself overthrown again by Armando II once again in 675AD. By then, Armando II had grown old and was once and for all killed in a coup, again by Felipe II in 678AD. Felipe II had also grown old however, and was arrested and executed on orders of Armando III, Armando II's son, in 679AD. Armando III reigned until 713AD when he abdicated in favor of his brother Fidel I. Fidel I reigned from 713AD-732AD, his death. He was succeeded by his son, Fidel II, who was captured and killed by the invading Deltinian forces in 745AD, ending the Old Kingdom of Creeperopolis.
