The War with Myrlocke[]

The War with Myrlocke (for lack of a better name) was a four-month military conflict between the forces of United Lorenia and Hyldlor beginning in December 1104 and ending with the defeat of Hyldlor on 22 February 1105. The outcome removed a tyrant from power, stopped the summoning of a Lord of Entropy and united the two kingdoms. Wizard-King Myrlocke declared war in 1104 for several reasons, including trade restrictions brought about by the Treaty between Claybough and Attillan, the defection of both his children (and heirs) Princess Vesper Llyr and Prince Daystar Llyr, outrage over the blending of Hyldloran and Lorenian cultures but mostly because he was an asshole.
