Prince Daghon Durethë
NOBLE-134.jpg

(144-193/4) Daghon Durethë was the eldest son of Eldaran King Aron Durethë, who led the Thannish invasion of the Kratheri Peninsula that came to be called the Glorious Conquest.


In the year 179/4, Prince Daghon was sent by his father; King Aron, on an expedition to conquer the Kratheri Peninsula for the glory of Eldara. That same year, Daghon gathered a great host of Thannish soldiers, boarded a massive fleet of ships, and sailed east, across the South Sea.

At this same time, the Kratheri people of the peninsula were ruled by the kingdom of Kerathos. The King of Kerathos; Nek'Var Barshem, put up stiff resistance to Daghon and his Thannish solders, and the campaign became long and bloody.

Under Daghon's leadership, the Eldaran army soon conquered much of the eastern realm of Kerathos in a long series of bloody campaigns. Within five years of the start of the invasion, the Daghon had established a permanent settlement called Durendar, and his forces controlled more than half the territory on the Peninsula. One major obstacle remained; the Kratheri stronghold of Jareesh. Daghon had no choice but to settled in for a long siege.

Prince Daghon did not live to see the final victory over the Kratheri. He was slain in 193/4 during the long and bloody Siege of Jareesh; the capitol city of Kerathos.

Today, Prince Daghon is considered one of the greatest Thannish heroes, but is also hated by the enslaved Kratheri people, whose homeland he helped conquer long ago.
