Sasserine Uprising

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

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

The Uprising began when a group of seven prominant city figures conspired together to assassinate Diego Montravon, the last Kendari governor of Sasserine.

Diego was a corrupt bureaucrat, who kept much of the city's tax money for himself, and arbitrarily ordered his enemies thrown into the dungeons below 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, leaving 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 conspirators who started the Uprising became the the first members of the City's new ruling body, which was called the "Dawn Council."
