The Treaty of Rhodes was signed on July 9th, 1743. It was the official document that made Genovia it's own nation. The document separated Genovia from the control of King George II and the United Kingdom.
The reason for the Treaty of Rhodes was quite simple. The fact that King George II was much less of a pleasant king than his father King George I, made it all the more reasonable to Genovia. Roma, the first settlement of Genovia, dealt with a blockade that prevented trade with France and Spain. A lot of Genovia's food and clothing came from the Iberian Peninsula. King George ordered his royal troops to become the official police of Genovia. By 1729, Genovia was talking revolution. A group of 50 men began the revolution on June 3rd, 1730 by raiding a british police building, killing 10 british soldiers and burning the building to the ground. The oppression continued with high stamp tarriffs, the closing of any newspaper that exsisted, and the taxtation of thousands of dollars.
Signing of the TreatyEdit
On June 5th, 1743, King George II sent a messenger to inform Rhodes that he would arrive in Pyrus to speak with the leaders of the revolution. On July 9th, 1743, King George II arrived in Pyrus. After meeting with Rhodes for more than 5 hours, the meetin ended with the signing of the Treaty of Rhodes, which freed Genovia from the United Kingdom.
The Treaty of Rhodes was a clear set out piece of paper that stated exactly what would become of the relationship between the UK and Genovia. The document stated that England could not own any colony on the same island of Genvoia. Genovia would be entirely freed of goverance from England and England would not get involved in the domestic affairs of Genovia. England would recognize the establishment of Genovia as a nation and Rhodes as the first Monarch of Genovia. King George II was not all to excited about the terms, however; Genovia agreed to, in return, become an ally of the United Kingdom and become an economic trade partner with England.
