The Sasserine Uprising of 1227

The Uprising was a revolt that took place in the year in 1227/6 by the peoples of Sasserine against the military occupation by the Republic of Kendar.

The uprising was successful and resulted in Sasserine becoming a free and independent city. The uprising was short, but bloody; with hundreds slain on both sides.

The Uprising began when a group of seven nobles conspired together, and assassinated the last Kendari governor of the city. This Governor; Diego Montravon, was a corrupt bureaucrat, who kept much of the city's tax money for himself, and had his enemies arbitrarily thrown into the dungeons of Castle Teraknian.

The Uprising and the resulting turmoil threw Sasserine into chaos. Without the leadership of Diego Montravon, the Kendari garrison was overthrown within a fortnight and Castle Teraknian abandoned.

When the Kendarum discovered the true reasons why their governor had been assassinated, they agreed not to intervene, militarily. Kendar did not want another brutal, bloody occupation. It was easier to simply negotiate for peace and free the colony.

After Sasserine was granted independence, the seven adventurers who started the Uprising became the the first members of the City's new ruling body: the "Dawn Council."
