King Leland Uzren

King Leland was the first monarch from the Uzren Dynasty of Marundi.

In the year 674/6, Leland succeeded King Cerland II, after he was slain at the Battle of Krell and his Dynasty ended.

Leland's rise to the throne was controversial, because at that time, Marundi had just fought in the War of Crows, and been on the losing side. Much of the kingdom's territory was, at that time, occupied by allied soldiers. The victorious allies played a heavy hand in Leland's ascension to the Bearclaw Throne.

At the time, it was felt by many Thalari that the House of Uzren was chosen because for their loyalty and subservience to the allies, and not for their loyalty to their own Marundian subjects. As a result, the Uzren family was considered traitors and illegitimate by many Thalari nobles.

This hostility later manifested itself in four separate assassination attempts on King Leland. This malcontent also resulted in centuries of political infighting that plagued the Uzren Dynasty throughout its existence.
