Main article: Der Erbe#Plot

According to the apocryphal German Adel vernichtet duology, one House de Leon held the title of Duke of Cammal while the world was a Federated Suns holding in the Succession Wars era.

During the Fourth Succession War, Capellan Confederation warlord Shang Tsung launched a counterattack against Cammal. Duke Manuel de Leon and his ducal guard, the Lionhearts, narrowly held the line together with the Youngblood Renegades mercenaries (hired by Capellan March Duke Michael Hasek-Davion), with heavy losses. The Capellans, although ultimately repulsed, inflicted massive damage on Cammal and managed to destroy the duke's DropShip, killing him and his family and ending the line of House de Leon. Afterwards, many felt that House Davion had been suspiciously slow in sending reinforcements to Cammal.

After the war, the law firm representing the late duke and his House (Cummings Law-and-Justice) prevented the duchy from falling back to House Davion and kept searching for a legitimate heir for decades. The power vacuum on Cammal was meanwhile filled by a politically weak planetary government formed from the numerous different factions comprising the population. The Lionhearts became a mercenary unit. The Youngblood Renegades received a continent on Cammal as fief for their service, becoming its de facto rulers and thus one of the ruling factions on the planet.

The enigmatic Winterland Enterprises megacorporation became the world's single largest employer. Researching into the corporation's background and dealings, the Youngblood Renegades find that Winterland Enterprises seems to possess far more money that it should, possibly from a group of nobles around the late duke Michael Hasek-Davion who might have been preparing a coup (putting a new spin on Hasek-Davion's purported hero's death on a "peace mission" to Sian in the war). Winterland Enterprises CEO Judy de Winter is the daughter of the Duke of Corella, who was associated with Hasek-Davion and also died under mysterious circumstances

Clan Invasion era[edit]

In 3053 a Cummings lawyer named Richard Foster-Drake identified one MechWarrior Lance Sergeant Michael Razza of the 1st Kittery Borderers in a hospital on Warren as a legitimate successor of Manuel de Leon and as such the inheritor of the title of duke of Cammal and substantial wealth. The restoration of the ducal line led to unrest on Cammal, but eventually turned out to be a charade; the ostensible heir had been a heavily wounded soldier who was brainwashed by the lawyer and his associates in a power grab move that ultimately failed.

The Jihad[edit]

Cammal was one of ten worlds assaulted by the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces during the third week of March 3069, a wave of attacks that formed a part of Operation THUNDERSTRIKE, the Capellan counteroffensive against the Capellan March in defiance of Duke George Hasek's campaign Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE.[36]

Dark Age[edit]

The mercenary unit Covenant's Commandos was sent to protect the mining facilities on Cammal. A combined-arms force of pirates attacked the planet, and the unit user a pair of Arbalests to harass them, buying time for the rest of the unit to catch and destroy them piecemeal.[37]
