Planetary HistoryEdit

Second Succession WarEdit

Kyrkbacken was captured along with the worlds of Berenson and Zion by a hugely successful Free Worlds League Military offensive led by the Fusiliers of Oriente that struck the Sarna Commonality of the Capellan Confederation in 2832.[14]

Third Succession WarEdit

In 2941 agents operating on behalf of Captain-General Samuel Marik convinced Vincente Sian-Marik to sign a treaty with the Free Worlds League transferring his allegiance and those of the worlds he administered to the League. In addition to being the planetary administrator of Kyrkbacken, Ohrensen, Suzano, Ventabren and Zion, Sian-Marik was a distant relative of the Marik line; while the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces garrisons on the five worlds didn't try to resist the transfer of worlds, they did engage in widespread scorched-earth operations on each world to inflict as much damage as possible prior to the transfer. As a consequence the acquisition of the five worlds saddled the Free Worlds League with a significant and expensive rebuilding program.[17]
