The First Union War of Frecia (1841–1852), also known as the Frekian Civil War, was a major conflict that took place within the northern regions of modern-day Frecia. The conflict was fought between the Kingdom of Frekia and the Republic of Ioannia, over the gold mines of today's Ioninos. The Bulgarian and Romanian Frekians that inhabited the region were seeking to benefit from the mines as the Greeks who dominated the country had marginalized their minority neighbors for much of the nation's history.

The Ioannia Crisis, perpetrated by Silvestru Mandruleanu, was done with the aim of forcing the government into appealling to the plight of the non-Greek citizens, but ultimately failed when Greek Frekians murdered Mandruleanu in his office in 1841. The outrage sparked the minorities of Frecia to fight their government seeking better treatment and fair representation in the national government. The civil war, though a total failure for the rebelling forces, is credited with establishing the minority groups of Frecia in the government, which sought never to have a repeat of the civil war ever again.
