The conflict began when an emperor of the Lilliputian people decreed that all eggs could only be broken on the small end. Many of the emperor's people rebelled at the decree and the Blefuscu entered into the conflict on their behalf. They of course were of the belief that eggs should only be broken in the "large" end. Nonetheless, this became an ongoing conflict between the two empires!
