Merchant's War

(594-596/5) The Merchant's War was a conflict lasting from between the Ravinian Empire and the kingdom of Orel.

The war was largely orchestrated by Sorimmar’s agents and was essentially a sea-based conflict.

The navy of Orel defeated the Imperial Navy on four occasions, including their greatest victory at the Battle of the Montero Straits, in which they annihilated much of the Imperial southern fleet.

After this humiliation, the Ravinian Empire sued for peace, and any chance that Orel would join the Empire was lost forever.
