Involvement Edit

Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne.

  • Battle of White River: A battle during the Fereldan Rebellion about which little is known, save that it was a devastating defeat for the rebel forces from which only fifty rebels escaped, including Bryce Cousland, Rendon Howe and Leonas Bryland.
  • Battle of River Dane: A pivotal battle in the Fereldan Rebellion in which two legions of chevaliers crossing the river were ambushed and slain, the defeat such that the Orlesian Emperor Florian abandoned his support to King Meghren as he saw little point in squandering so many resources to secure what had become an ungovernable and rebellious province.

Notes Edit

The Minanter River was referred to in ancient times as the River Pnemoix.[3]
