" Sometimes a nation has to fight to stay great. Even if it is hopeless. Just because it is necessary to do it"
- Ioannis Metaxas (Prime Minister of The Kingdom of Greece)
Kingdom of Greeceball was a kingdom in Europe and a predecessor to the modern day state in Greeceball.
Kingdom of Greeceball was born as a 2ball, later adopted by Macedonball, Ancient Greeceball, SPQRball, Byzantineball and Ottoman Empireball before becoming independent in 1832 at the end of the Greek War of Independence. The new kingdom was recognized by the great powers of Europe, UKball, Kingdom of Franceball, and Russian Empireball. After eleven years of being an absolute monarchy, a constitution was established and Kingdom of Greeceball became a constitutional monarchy.
In 1912, Ottoman Empireball had gotten bitter with its neighbors and former colonies in Southern Europe and escalating tensions lead to the declaration of war and the beginning of the First Balkan War. Greeceball joined the Balkan League and was allied with Kingdom of Serbiaball, Tsardom of Bulgariaball, Kingdom of Montenegroball. Ottomanball had poor intelligence and would thus suffer disastrous defeat after disastrous defeat at the hands of the Greek Army. By May of 1913, Ottomanball surrendered and Greeceball saw an expansion of its territory, but Bulgariaball was angered by his gains and started the Second Balkan War which Greeceball was forced to suppress.
World War I
In 1914, Europe was up in arms and World War I soon began. Greeceball was mostly neutral throughout half of the war despite its friendly ties with Serbiaball and its government's friendly views towards German Empireball and the rest of the Central Powers. By 1916, Greeceball joined the war and sent troops to aid the Allies on the Macedonian Front against the Central Powers. The Allies emerged victorious by 1918 and Greeceball remained free and victorious.
After the end of the Great War, Greeceball sent troops to Ottomanball's mainland to occupy it, but by 1919 it devolved into a full-blown war leading to the Greco-Turkish War which was part of the much larger Turkish War of Independence. Turkey won and a population exchange was conducted between the two sides. In 1935, an authoritarian regime took over and ruled Greeceball from 1936 until 1941.
World War II
Greeceball once more declared neutrality following the outbreak of World War II, but that didn't stop others from seeking to conquer them. In 1940, a Greek ship was destroyed and Greeceball was soon invaded by Kingdom of Italyball as part of its imperialist expansionist policies. This lead to the start of the Greco-Italian War and Italyball would make small gains before it was halted by Greeceball's defenders. Italyball was soon driven back to Italian Albaniaball which forced Nazi Germanyball to invade and conquer Greeceball during the Battle of Greece on the same day of the Invasion of Yugoslavia in April of 1941.
