The Andalusian Civil War, also known as the Andalusian Revolution was a civil conflict in Andalusia fought between forces loyal to the House of Elias-led government of the Andalusian Confederation, and forces loyal to the radical left-wing Andalusian National Council. The war began in August 1968, with the 2+1 Incident, and essentially ended when major active battles ceased in 1972 following the deadly Rashaya Crisis. The conflict eventually resulted in two de facto states, the Andalusian Confederation (ACO) on the Donan Peninsula and the Republic of Andalus, both claiming to be the legitimate government of Andalus. However, Apomo was eventually captured by the Republicans in 1974 after the ouster of the Royal family in the White Revolution, effectively dissolving the Confederation, and the family went into exile in Okaiken.

In 1981, following the successful restoration of the Andalusian confederal monarchy through public referendum, those responsible for the Republican uprising fled from the mainland to Apomo, which was staunchly opposed to the Andalusian monarchy. Subsequently, Apomo broke away from Andalus, establishing itself as the Apomo Democratic Republic, claiming that the referendum was illegal and the results distorted, therefor the Federal Kingdom of Andalus is an illegitimate state. The ADR refuses to recognize the FKA, and does not maintain relations with any state that recognizes the Federal Kingdom. The international community does not recognize the use of the name "Apomo Democratic Republic" and maintains the position that Apomo is a renegade province of Abbasid. The Federal Kingdom of Andalus rejects the position that Apomo is it's territory, but has openly supported attempts at reconciliation. This issue has led to many scholars to describe this as a "peaceful" extension in the Andalusian Civil War, which the Andalusian government frequently opposes.
