First Sea War

(370-371/5) The First Sea War was a conflict fought between the kingdom of Orel and the kingdoms of Thûle and Üthrar.

The war was primarily a naval conflict, consisting of several major sea-battles and dozens of minor skirmishes. The war came to an end with the gargantuan Battle of Ekkryn Sound, in which the combined Thûlian and Üthrari fleets were virtually annihilated.

This terrible battle also cost the life of Orellian King Royce Alesard.


The First Sea War definitively proved the Orellian Navy was more than a match for any opposing fleet. Within a few years, the Sea of Eldara was re-named the Sea of Orel, as homage to the dominance of that kingdom upon its waters.
