Background[edit | edit source]
Battle of Lothering[edit | edit source]
At the Battle of Lothering, King Vanedrin Theirin is killed and Calenhad the Great's sword, Nemetos, is lost. Before the king's death, Ardal Cousland, Teyrn of Highever, is slain defending his king.
Post-Lothering[edit | edit source]
In 8:44 Blessed, twenty years after the invasion first started, Orlais finally sacks the city of Denerim, claiming victory in Ferelden and driving King Brandel into hiding.
Aftermath[edit | edit source]
The Orlesian occupation begins in Ferelden which lasts for 58 years, marking a dark period in its history.
Though routed, the king now known as "Brandel the Defeated" continues to rebel against the Orlesians. For the most part his efforts are inefficient as most nobles believe that Ferelden is truly lost.
