The Long Raid (273 AEKE):

-authumn: Prince Alfred collects the southern armies and marches againts Edhel to crush the hordes. The battle is fought near Golea, but during the cavalry charge, Alfred falls from his horse and breaks his neck, the nobles blow the horn and retreat, while infantry (which is left without support) is butchered by the barbarians. The Southern Army is gone, the barbarians make a camp near the river and start to plunder the farmlands for food.

- late autumn: in the north, Prince Cuthbert suppresses peasant uprisings, when he is informed of his brother's, Alfred's death. King Willem V of Hulra invades Northern Etrand with an army, Cuthbert retreats to Grandfolk, Willem lays siege to the city. This was the very first time in history when Grandfolk - the capital city of the Kingdom of Etrand - was ever besieged.

- early winter: the winter seems to be rather mild, so the siege continues. King Villem demands the surrender of the city, but Cuthbert refuses.

- winter: the coldest winter in the history of Etrand befalls to Etrand: all rivers and lakes freeze, after a few weeks, the starving and freezing army of Villem decides to withdraw to the east, but Cuthbert attacks them from the back, and King Villem dies in the battle. In the south, barbarians - not disturbed by the cold a bit - are on the move again. They arrive in Talon in a winter storm during night, climb the low stone walls and surprise the guards who retreated from the cold to their towers. The invaders open the gates and swarm the part which was near the frozen lake, and after one day of plundering and pillaging, they leave the sacked village.
