Planetary History

Settled at some point prior to the end of the Age of War[3] Marantha was a member of the Magistracy of Canopus when a Star League Defense Force task force under the command of Captain-General Marion Marik was assigned to conquer the Magistracy of Canopus in 2577. Marantha was targetted by the SLDF following the capture of Canopus IV, with the VII Corps' 56th Brigade landing in late 2584 with support from the 4th Marik Militia and the 3rd Regulan Hussars. The SLDF invasion was fiercely contested by the 1st Canopian Light Horse and Mieselsen's Maruaders despite being outnumbered more than two to one, and the resulting battle saw the Marauders effectively destroyed as a combat unit although the Light Horse managed to escape off-world.[5][26]

Marantha would be occupied by the SLDF for the remainder of the war; once the Reunification War ended, a number of Magistracy worlds were annexed by the Free Worlds League, but Marantha remained a part of the Magistracy.[5][6]
