Battle of Cordova

Cordova was the site of a horribly bloody battle that took place in the year 423/6, between loyal nobles of the Orsini monarchy and the Halberon Alliance that ended the Halberon Uprising.

By the year 423/6, the Halberon Uprising had been going on for over eighteen years, and the loyalist faction was clearly losing; over two thirds of the Erindari noble houses had gone over to the banners of Heremmer Halberon.

The rebel army finally began their march on the capitol city of Chelstad. As the loyalist army encamped outside the city, on the fields of Cordova, the rebel army attacked them; gaining complete surprise. The loyalists were soundly defeated and King Estris Orsini II was killed. Shortly thereafter, the remaining loyalists surrendered.

Heremmer then took over ruler-ship of Erindar, and proclaimed himself king. King Heremmer was not the forgiving type; after his coronation, he soon ordered the loyalist noble houses banished and their lands seized. These vanquished nobles later joined with Amar to form the kingdom of Ammarind.
