The War of Grudges was a war fought in 1607-1612, between the Kingdom of Norland and the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. The conflict started in 1607 after Norlandic Soldiers killed several Dwarves belonging to the Grand Kingdom of Urguan. The war would rage on for six long years before ending at the crushing Dwarven defeat at The Second Siege of the Krag with a peace treaty.

Prelude

The War of the Grudges started in 1607 after the slaughter of several dwarves by the hands of the Kingdom of Norland. Many historians believed the War stemmed from multiple feuds that the Grand Kingdom of Urguan had held several decades prior. Later that same year, the Grand Kingdom of Urguan formed several alliances with the Teutonic Order, and the Grand Horde of Dunamis, before declaring war on the Kingdom of Norland. Causing the beginning of The War of Grudges.
