Early History

The Journey

My father lost himself in blind loyalty. My father was not a bad man. Just a misguided one following the wrong king.
Birgitt Mander

Jevard Mander would forbid his family and declared the State of Mander would not take part in the Journey undertaken by William Lovie III. as he still remembered his friend Bill Lovie and would remain loyal to him, but despite decreeing this almost all of his vassals would join the Journey. Among his own family several attempted to join the Lucernian forces gathering for William Lovie III. including Andras Mander, and Hildur Mander of whom were preparing to rally nearly a thousand of the six thousand men at arms in just the city of Mander when they would be ratted out by Jorni Mander.

Civil War in Mander

Alise Terentia Large.jpg
Loyalty is an interesting thing Lord Snow. I remember swearing an oath to King James. I did not swear an oath to the new King. For my purposes I am a loyal servant of the Kingdom.
Jevard Mander
The Civil War in Mander would begin after House Terentia would become hostile towards their lord in House Mander following the breaking of a betrothal between House Mander's heir in the form of Andrias Mander, and a daughter of the lord of House Terentia in the form of Alise Terentia. The betrothal had been a promice made between the two houses and due to the level of Andrias House Terentia had paid a dowry to House Mander to gain the marriage instead of the other way around, and the betrothal had been going fine with Alise, and Andrias having spent time together and become close, but it was ended when House Terentia joined the forces of William Lovie III. during the Journey while House Mander remained loyal to Bill Lovie and this led House Mander's lord in the form of Jevard Mander to end the betrothal and not give back the dowry money as further insult. Following this insult and breakdown of the relationship House Terentia begin making moves against House Mander alongside House Svaeder of whom led by Wittige Svaeder who was married to Terenia Terentia also joined with House Terentia supporting his wife's family. The rebellion of these areas was of great concern as House Mander as the two sides were basically equal in strength but the Mander leadership also knew that the longer this went on the more chance there was that the Bronheim rebellion was put down and then House Tyrell would intervene on the side of the rebels. House Mander would first send Birgitt Mander, and her husband Frodmar Numisson to the province of Far Castamere where they hoped to bring House Banefort to their side of things and then with House Banefort on their side they could move against the rebels. While this action was underway it was Andrias Mander, and Andras Mander that were placed in charge of defending the Mander river crossing which was the only real way the rebels would be able to get into Mander while House Unisson remained on their side.
I took command of the defences of Mander. I honestly never thought it would get to Mander.
Andrias Mander
In order to defend these they would place heavy fortifications at each of the river crossings entering Mander, and then under the order of Andras Mander they would raise the entire Mander naval assets and place them on patrols up the eastern tracts of the river in order to further stop any sort of crossings. Lord Jevard Mander, and his son Jorni Mander would move into Northern Mander where they met with the forces of House Unisson who led by Fafnir Unisson, and his shieldmaiden wife Angela Unisson would prepare to attack the town of Traender and knock out one of the rebels as soon as the fighting begin. Arriving at Far Castamere Birgitt, and Frodmar were met with great excitment by Lord Altmann Banefort, and his family of whom invited them to a lavish dinner the night of their arrival. At the dinner Altmann would agree to support the loyalists in return for control of parts of both Eastern Mander, and Southern Mander. Birgitt had been given orders to gain the support of Altmann under any cercumstances and so she would agree to this offer, and thus Lord Altmann would agree to send his forces under the command of his bastard son Aldwin Storm and begin the assault on Eastern Mander.
Sparking the Fire

1. Bandits led by Lothar Calnalys launch an attack into Southern Mander where they sack three villages before the warning goes out to House Svaeder 2. House Svaeder raises an army and head to the fifth village along the path the bandits appear to be taking and wait in wait for the bandits who arrive and are then defeated by the waiting forces of House Svaeder.

My father commanded my uncle to lead a force of mercenaries into Eastern Mander with the objective of killing people. He believed it would have the effect of forcing the rebels to move against us.
Andrias Mander
With House Banefort having joined with the loyalists the plan would be to force the rebels to move against them, while at the same time having the forces of House Banefort move into Eastern Mander and capture towns and villages thus weakening the rebels further. These movements then expanded with the burning of several farms controlled by House Svaeder of which was done by bandits paid by House Banefort and led by Lothar Calnalys and while successful the raids were also extremely violent and led to House Svaedar planning a trap around the villages east of the last one sacked. The bandits for their part continued moving eastward delaying for several hours to sack the fourth village and this delay meant that by the time they arrived the Svaeder forces had arrived at the fifth village where they lay in wait. The bandits were caught unaware and defeated by the ambushing Svaeder force led by Wittige Svaeder of whom were able to bring the bandits to speak the truth revealing they had been paid by House Mander thus revealing the plotting.
My Lady the Manders and Banefort forces having been killing and raising all across our lands for months. I tried talking. No amount of talking is going to replace the vengeance that fills my heart.
Ernar Terentia
Raiding Eastern Mander

1. Forces of Jevard Mander Launch a large suprise attack on the town of Traender. 2 & 3. House Unisson launches raids into Eastern Mander. 4. House Banefort attempts to capture Castle Ghertin but is pushed back by the defenders.

With the raids launched against House Svaeder going forward it was the larger scale raids planned by House Mander that would move forward against the forces of House Terentia. Jevard would lead a Bandit force of five hundred hired using Lannister coin against the town of Traender and the attack was launched during the peak of the day meaning the entire town was full as they launched the raid. During the Raid on Traender hundreds of the townfolk were killed and dozens of the nobles were taken hostage and brought back to Central Mander while they also burned much of the town down before leaving. House Unisson would also launch raids into the areas around Castle Fortexius and Castle Moyer but both of these attacks gained little success as they were launched days after the raid on Traender and thus the entire region was prepared for attacks and they were pushed back. House Banefort would launch an assault on Castle Ghertin where troops who were not even hiding their Banefort colors nearly took control of the castle until a heroic defence by Wiegert Ghertin and his elite Knights of the Order of The Holy Evoldar arrived and drove back the attackers. Even after the discover of the previous banditry mission by Jevard and subsequent demand from the leadership of Terentia for restitution's these attempts at diplomacy would be ignored and two knights sent by House Terentia delivering their request were executed leading to House Terentia declaring war on House Mander.

Capture of Mander

Following the capture of most of the town of Mander by the forces of House Terentia the majority of the military forces of House Mander either continued to fight in the town or retreated to Castle Mander north of the city which was commanded by Andras Mander and at Castle Mander would remain the main holdout of the Mander forces due to its strong fortifications, and the strategic skill of Andras Mander.

Retaking of Mander

I have the authority of my uncle Lord Tyrell to end this fight. I had the authority, I just didn't want to kill anyone when I though I could have talked them all down. Now I'm forced to call in outsiders and my attempts at peace have failed.
Dylan Tyrell

Following the Capture of Mander by the forces of Terentia, and Svaeder the diplomatic efforts of Dylan Tyrell on the behalf of House Tyrell to end the fighting would end and Dylan begin marshaling forces to move into Mander and end the fighting. With the majority of the Tyrell personal forces away assisting in the rebellion of southern Bronheim they were forced to send a token force from Highgarden mainly relying on House Bulwer of Trensdale from their forces while they sent out word to the Starke's to send assistance.

Noble House Leader of force Size of Forces
House Bulwer Jack Bulwer 3,000 Men at arms, 70 Knights
House Starke Brandon Starke II. 1,200 Men at arms, 120 Knights
House Tarly Dickon Tarly 1,800 Men at arms, 30 Knights
House Reed Howland Reed 800 Men at arms, 3 Knights
House Scott Nathan Scott 1,000 Men at arms, 40 Knights
House Reiter Lambert Reiter 2,500 Men at arms, 80 Knights

As the fighting devolved around the capital of Mander it would be the decision of Jevard Mander that he would send the children, and women out of Mander in order to protect them as by this point victory for House Mander was becoming less likely. While most were able to escape it would be one convoy that was leaving Mander by boat heading towards Roxton with Asgerda Mander, Wendelina Mander, Blenda Mander II. and Verona Mander on board that would be targeted by pirates now operating freely on the Jutistort River. The boat would be boarded by the pirates and while the pirate captain Altmann Yeriton would take Wendelina back to his boat and his men ransacked the Mander boat it was the implied rape of Wendelina that led to Verona reacting by killing one of the Yeriton men. Verona would kill two more guards before she was finally killed by an arrow to the chest but a now bloodthirsty Yeriton crew would also rape both Blenda, and Asgerda before killing them and throwing their bodies into the river. Altmann returned too late to stop all of this but did execute two of the men responsible for the rapes and then attempted to hide the evidence of what had happened by sinking the boat and then fleeing the area. Unable to now ransom any of the hostages as was his main plan he returned to the port of Castle Yeriton with his real prize in the form of Wendelina.

The Dragon Arrives
Leven Martell Large Black Dress.jpg
Do you understand who I am? If you touch a hair on my head the pain you suffer from the King will be beyond what you can fathom.
Leven Martell

As the armies of Terentia entered Mander it would be the command of Jevard that would lead to Hildur Mander leaving the capital with some two hundred men going southward in order to become bandits and convince the people of the province about the brutality of House Terentia. As the forces of House Terentia moved against Mander the call for assistance would go out into the region with House Mander at this point trying to get assistance as the Liege Lord of Mander. As this call went up it was House Lannister who would send a very large force led by Hanzal Reyne but despite the call coming from House Mander it was House Lannister that ordered Hanzal to join with the forces of House Banefort and assist them which could mean a brutal extension of the conflict upon his arrival. House Tyrell was at this point bogged down fighting against the rebellion of House Bronheim and thus could only send a token force to Mander led by Dylan Tyrell. Also answering this early call for assistance would be the forces of House Scott of whom due to the involvement of Leven Martell at Tree Hill would be basically forced to send forces due to the fact that everyone knew if they rejected her then she would tell William about their refusal.

The King shall hear about how you dither about here. You could have raised a force days ago, but you have not. This has not gone unnoticed Lord Scott.
Leven Martell

As Lucas was away at the time Nathan Scott was appointed the commander of the Scott forces going to Mander, but would be accompanied by Leven Martell and Brooke Scott of whom were the real power behind the Scott movement. When word reached Tree Hill it was ignored by Dan Scott, but Leven would realize that with the fighting in the south taking the Tyrells out of being able to reinforce Mander she believes very strongly that the Scotts need to send forces and she makes Brooke take her to the Keep of Tree Hill to meet with the lords of Tree Hill. Dan Scott would call the assembly of the Tree Hill Lords but during the initial meeting he would delay things, and basically waste time of which greatly angered Leven causing an argument between Dan Scott and Leven Martell. Brooke Scott, and Level Martell would leave ahead of the main force of House Scott with only a force of some fifty men believing that the flag of House Lovie that Leven flies will allow them to move without difficulty on the way to Mander. Arriving at the town of Gunderhoun they meet with Dylan Tyrell who has retreated here following failing to stop the violence at the city of Mander, and explains to Leven and Brooke that the rebels have broken the Mander forces and are in the process of sacking the capital city. Also present in the meeting is Randolph Heitmann II., his heir Gunthard, his neice Alwine, and his brother Eckhart all of whom are shown to be William loyalists as they discuss that both Alwine and Eckhart joined The Journey despite House Mander forbidding the involvment of the State of mander. Leven and Brooke discuss the dire situation they find themselves in and wanting to make sure this ends as quickly as possible the two split up with Leven taking command of the forces of House Bulwar and moving against the capital city while Brooke will lead the forces of House Scott eastward towards House Banefort who is still fighting in the east.
