Conflict lasting from 1227-1230/6, between Marundi and the Hüornen tribes of the Northern Wastes. The war began when the Hüornen War-chief Sicard invaded Marundi to put a stop to their raids in his territory. His army marched south and eventually besieged the Marundian capitol of Derilath. The Hüornen siege was eventually broken and their armies driven back north, where they were finally defeated at the Battle of the Frozen Ford in 1230/6. Both Sicard and King Morland Natharë of Marundi were slain in this battle. Relations between the two groups have bitter ever since.
