The 1914 December Uprising, commonly referred to as the Prohászka Uprising or the Imperial Revolt, was a revolution in Ruvelka led by the Imperial Separatist Movement of Rózsá Prohászka and Kátálin Dorman that is considered the official starting point of the historically pivotal Ruvelkan Civil War. An armed insurrection, taking place in the central Ruvelkan city of Debrecen, the December Uprising led to the establishment of the Imperial State that would eventually go on to create the Principality of Ruvelka.
It capitalized on the earlier November Revolution in Kaposvár which ended in violent clashes between protesters and government police forces resulting in several hundred deaths. The ongoing political turmoil prompted the Imperials to secure their control over central Ruvelka where their support was strongest, quickly organizing and recruiting a volunteer militia. Urban workers throughout the nation also began organizing and aligning with the the Imperials and other anti-communist movements.
The Imperials initiated the revolution with the occupation of several government buildings in Debrecen on 5 December. Several stand-offs took place between the Separatist Volunteer Guard and the soldiers of the Red Volunteer Garrison, but no shots were exchanged. After several days, severely outnumbered and cut-off from the government in Kaposvár, the Red Army forces in Debrecen were forced to surrender.
