A coup d'état (pronounced koo day-tah), also known as a coup (koo) or a rebellion, is an event where one party attempts to overthrow a country's current government.


Coup d'etats are usually performed through military force. Unlike terrorist attacks, which are used to invoke fear, coup d'etats are intended to remove and replace a country's government with one the coup's supporters believe would be more beneficial.

Coup forces - the people fighting in support of the coup d'état - typically have a military background. However, they are usually a minority compared to the loyalist government forces or their hired mercenaries. As a result, coups are rarely successful.
