War of the Elanthir

(1175-1179/3) The War of the Elanthir was a conflict between the First Alliance and the forces of Alokkair.

During this war, the Seven Champions of the West united for the first time to defend Corwyn against Alokkairs' Gauth and orc armies. The conflict ended with a stunning victory over Alokkair’s forces at the Battle of Thürdrum, in which nine different armies from both the East and the West battled for control of the continent.

After the battle, Alokkair was captured by Eradan Myrnäe and the war came to an end. King Eradan then imprisoned Alokkair in the dungeons of Castle Myrdon.

This great victory of the so-called "Seven Champions" allowed those men to subsequently raise seven new human kingdoms in western Corwyn: Alveron, Amar, Eldara, Iskandar, Ralas, Rhodara, and Thalar.

This massive victory also led to the eventual expansion of western influence into the East, both by the realms of Amar in the north, and Eldara in the south.

This war also saw the end of the Gauth domination of the East, as most of their folk were slain or driven into obscurity during that conflict.
