The Twenty Years' War (Creeperian Spanish: Guerra de Beinte Años), also known as the Creeperian Protestant War (Guerra Protestante Creeperiano) or the Great Creeperian War of Religion (Gran Guerra de Religión Creeperiano), was a twenty-year long conflict in Creeperopolis that lasted from 1503 to 1523. The war was a direct result of the Protestant Reformation in Creeperopolis that began in 1502 against the corruption and large influence of the Creeperian Catholic Church.

Since the conlcusion of the Creeperian Crusade in 1345, Creeperian Catholicism was the dominant religion within Creeperopolis and the Creeperian Catholic Church held massive influence over the politics of the nation and over everyday life. The nation was ruled as a theocracy. In 1258, King Alfonso I granted the Church its own nation, the State of the Church, so it could govern itself without having to be interfered by the Creeperian government.

In 1502, a Creeperian Catholic priest from Adolfosburg, Martín López Pulos, expressed his criticisms of the Creeperian Catholic Church by posting a list of 5 criticisms of the Church. The Five Criticisms as they are now known called for the abolishment of indulgences, the change of ceremonies being spoken in Creeperian Spanish rather than Old Creeperian, the reduction of the Church's influence over society, the reduction of the Church's influence over the monarchy, and the allowing of assembly participation in ceremonies. Both King Miguel V and Pope Pio III rejected the criticisms put forth by López Pulos and he was excommunicated from the Church. López Pulos had gained a significant amount of followers who supported his criticisms and they began to protest in the streets of Adolfosburg agaisnt the Church. Their protests lead to them being known as "Protestants" and they embraced the name and began to call themselves Creeperian Protestants. The Mayor of Adolfosburg, Horacio Mena Guerrero, denounced the movements which lead to him being executed by the Protestants when he and his administration was thrown out of the fourth story window of the Adolfosburg Regional Palace. The Defenestration of Adolfosburg on 23 May 1503 marked the beginning of the war with the Protestants making their first move against the Creeperian government.

The government responded by organizing an army to crush the revolt, but by the time the Catholic army arrived at Adolfosburg, the Protestants had already organizaed into their own army called the Protestant League. In 1504, the First Adolfosburgish phase ended with the spread of the Protestant movement into San Luís and La'Libertad, beginning the San Luísan phase. During the phase, the Senvarians declared their independence as the Kingdom of Senvar on 17 November 1504. The Senvarians also joined the Protestant movement. The Deltinian Muslims also rose up in southern Creeperopolis forming the Muslim League. The Catholics and Senvarians agreed to a peace treaty in 1508 and the Muslims were defeated in 1517, ending the San Luísan phase. The next phase, the La'Libertadian phase began with Protestant pushes north to Salvador with the goal of deposing the King and the Pope. The Advance to Salvador from 1518 to 1519 ended in a major Protestant defeat and La'Libertad fell to the Catholics in 1520. The Second Adolfosburgish phase began with the Catholic push south. Adolfosburg fell to the Catholics on 15 May 1523 but the war concluded on 25 May 1523 after the conclusion of The Great Massacre that decimated the population of the city.

The war was one of the deadliest in Creeperian history. Around 3.5 million people died during the war. Massacres against Catholics, Protestants, and Muslims were common. The Catholic Church would later adopt three of the five complaints issued by López Pulos in 1965. López Pulos himself was drawn and quartered by the Catholic army on 19 May 1523 during The Great Massacre. As a result of the war, the Creeperian sect of Protestantism was eradicated while Senvarian Protestantism survivied and continues to exist. Other Protestant movements later emerged as a result of the Protestant Reformation and the Twenty Years' War across the world.
