As King Jarot of Galifar approached old age, questions about the succession of his throne ran rampant. Although by tradition, his eldest scion, Princess Mishann of Cyre was to claim the throne, others doubted her ability to rule. Prince Thalin of Thrane felt he was far more fit to rule instead. However, on the king’s deathbed in 894 YK, he gave Mishann his blessings and bade Prince Wrogar of Aundair to honor his decision.
At the king’s funeral, Mishann discussed the details of her coronation with her siblings, but they held a deaf ear to her words. They personally threatened to send their soldiers to Thronehold to prevent any such action. Only her brother Wrogar remained allied to Cyre, since he was bound by honor. In the year 894 YK, hostilities commenced. Alliances were formed, shifted, and were broken over the course of the war. Virtually no part of the continent was unaffected. The people of Khorvaire began to call the war of succession the Last War, as they believed that after the war was over everybody would be forever tired of war.
The Treaty of Thronehold was signed in 996 YK, two years after the Day of Mourning destroyed Cyre, effectively putting an end to the conflict. Although the signatories abide by the treaty, many feel that the current peace will only give way to more warfare. Until one nation defeats the others and claims the throne of the ancient Kingdom of Galifar, many believe there will never be a true and lasting peace.
