Kingmaker Rebellion

A failed rebellion against King Aegis by Lord Willem Chevon of House Chevon. Three noble houses were recruited to his cause along with their bannermen. One of these houses was House Dennison who betrayed the King in secret intending to turn on his armies in the field of battle at the last possible minute, a betrayal that would have spelled defeat for King Aegis’ armies. When King Aegis learned of this he sent a column of men to Elmleaf Castle as reinforcements, only when Lord Denothir opened his gates to recieve them they sacked the castle and brutally killed every member of the noble house. At the same time Aegis launched a preemptive attack against House Chevon and his two loyal houses’ armies. The attack was lead by the dreaded Blackwood Rangers along with all of the King’s men and those of two loyal houses. The rebellion was crushed in a single day, and this display of might by King Aegis has lead to a period of peace. Lord Chevon was put to death following the rebellion along with the two Lords that followed him, though all three were allowed to retain some of their holdings. All three now owe their allegiance directly to House Grim.
