War of the Fallen Crown
Battle-42.jpg

Terrible conflict lasting from 1008-1011/6 between the kingdoms of Serathyr and Elyria largely fought over the disputed ore-rich mines of the Greymist Hills region.

The war began when Serathian King Durand Hansafar, who claimed territorial rights to the many deposits of silver, gold and tilvium located in the region, ordered a series of raids and skirmishes. The Elyrian king; Corvin Crannock II quickly retaliated. The war soon spun out of control, drawing King Ilnavel Brevald of Cyrendar in on Serathyr’s side and King Aradan Garristannë II of Rennsfar in on Elyria’s. For three years, the four kingdoms and their armies butchered each over in a series of bloody sieges and battles, with many massacres of civilians being committed by all sides. In its fourth year, the war finally ended with a bloody stalemate at the Battle of Anley. The war cost the lives of King Durand of Serathyr, King Corvin II of Elyria, Kings Ilnavel and Istavar III of Cyrendar, and King Aradan II of Rennsfar.

It is said that the only victors in this conflict were the vultures who feasted on 100,000 corpses by war’s end.
