Battlefield%2013.jpg

Bloody battle in 1248/4, which ended the Second Eldaran Civil War. Rebellious nobles lead by Duke Rygar Alesard defeated the loyalist army led by King Hagar Durethë II, and soon after the king granted the eastern regions of Eldara independence. The loyalist army was poorly led and became outflanked and slaughtered. Nearly 20,000 Eldaran soldiers were killed or captured, for a loss of only 3,000 rebel troops. King Hagar himself was captured by Rygar's forces, and had to agree to Rygar's terms, which were quite gracious, considering the young King's position.

Soonafter, the kingdom of Orel was established and Duke Rygar Alesard became its first king.
