Planetary History[edit]

Star League era[edit]

At some point in the early 2600s there was a civil war.

Succession Wars[edit]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 3025, Verthandi held a widespread independence movement. Although Lyran, the world had been conquered and held by the Draconis Combine since 3015. Guerrilla movements, supported by several wealthy individuals, harassed the Combine forces occupying the world. In 3025 the Verthandi rebel movement hired the Gray Death Legion to provide training for the rebel movement and transport military supplies needed for the guerrilla's. Although the Legion was unable to land unopposed and faced difficulties within the movement as well as Combine opposition, they eventually rallied the guerrilla forces and liberated the planetary capitol, defeating the Combine's main occupation force. After the successful popular uprising, surviving Kuritan forces fell back to Regisport in disarray.[44] Regisport's repair yards were sufficient to make the Gray Death's DropShip, the Phobos, flightworthy enough to leave Verthandi at the conclusion of the mercenary command's contract.[45]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Operation Revival[edit]

Verthandi was conquered by Clan Wolf during Operation Revival in May 3050. At the time the planet was defended by the Second Battalion of the 2nd Kell Hounds and the Third Battalion of the 2nd Drakøns, along with the 4th Verthandi Armored Infantry Brigade. It was decided that an attempt would be made to gather as much information about these mysterious invaders as possible, and so a number of recording devices were planted all across Prince William Island. When Star Colonel Athen Kederk of the 16th Battle Cluster made his batchall to the defenders, the Kell Hounds and Drakøns requested that the small forested island be designated as the battlefield. The Star Colonel agreed, impressed by their ability to honor the batchall, and attacked with the 16th's Supernova Battle. Five hours of fierce fighting took place across the island, on Onegin Shore, the Divers Plain and at Aaron Woods, with both sides giving as good as they got. Eventually the Kell Hounds and Drakøns were forced to retreat, but not before a Star of Elementals broke through their defensive lines and destroyed most of their recording equipment. Defeated the Kell Hounds fled to the Federated Commonwealth while the Drakøns made their way to Rasalhague.[46]

The Jihad[edit]

Verthandi was conquered again during the Jihad; Clan Hell's Horses launched an invasion of the Clan Wolf holdings in the Inner Sphere in early 3071, acquiring holdings for their own relocation to Spheroid space. Verthandi was seized by the Hell's Horses between the 7th and 14th of April 3071.[32]
