To Stand Against the Red Moon
One-Eye War, The
In the 1560s, the Arnorings and the Orlmarth tried to resolve their feud with the marriage of the Arnoring chieftain Thyazi Goatkiller to Hilda Orlgandisdottir, the daughter of the Orlmarth chieftain. But the marriage was a contentious one, Hilda lost an eye in a riding accident, and when Thyazi repudiated her, it led to the One-Eye War, in which the Orlmarthing warriors put out one eye of every Arnoring warrior they defeated.
The two clans eventually stopped the war when Alda Peaceweaver, an Ernaldori priestess was able to get the two sides to bring an end to the war. But the feud itself remained unresolved, because the Arnorings demanded Uralda’s Milkpot and the Orlmarth refused to return it.
The Orlmarth still occasionally talk about ‘giving the Arnorings a poke in the eye.’
