Eladan's Folly

The decision King Eladan Myrnäe III made in 430/5, when he chose to pursue the retreating Vilzari armies into their vast desert and destroy them completely. The Vilzari instead destroyed Eladan’s entire army of 25,000 men. The entire incident has come to be called ‘Eladan’s Folly.’ All that remained of Eladan and his army was the infamous 'Trail of Skulls.'
