The Decolonization Wars were a series of conflicts between 1923 and 1965, at which's end the Kyrenaian Colonial Empire had collapsed and reduced significantly in size. While many of the Colonies separated in bloody independence wars and descended into civil wars, some separated peacefully, especially as time went on.

Usually, the Decolonization Wars are said to start with the Muetad-Uprising in 1923 and ended in 1965 with Aaron-Ilkhan sending food to Va'a Mamao during a famine.

The Decolonization Wars followed the Oil War of 1920.
