Previous: Cimmerian Timeline Part 46
I get to mix in that historical Cimmeria stuff I was posting about earlier. Hurray!
770BCE: Free from war with Nox, King Cotinasath of Jeutontic declared war against the town of Cecilia. A port would allow for greater trade income for the crown.
766BCE: After a lengthy siege, a group of merchants opened the gates of Cecilia and betrayed the city to King Cotinasath. Cecilia joined the Kingdom of Jeutontic.
723BCE: King Cristonton’s aggressive grandson, Kitanotaga, ascended to the throne. He immediately declared war on the Kingdom of Jeutontic.
721BCE: The bread basket of Petar gave the Xorian Kingdom the population to push through the Jeutontic aerial defense. The new queen Stanasha of Jeutontic was captured and forced to surrender the city to King Kitanotaga.
720BCE: King Kitanotaga consolidated control over Jeutontic and quietly had Queen Stanasha assassinated. He then moved against Cecilia and put the city under siege. Merchants within the port once again betrayed the city and opened the gates for the invaders. The Xorian Kingdom now controlled Nox, Petar, Jeutontic, and Cecilia.
715BCE: The Assyrians invaded Urartu and invited the Xorians to participate as well. King Kitanotaga led his army on a raiding expedition south into Urartu.
714BCE: King Rusa I of Urartu committed suicide in shame after his defeat at the hands of the Assyrians and Xorians. He was succeeded by King Argishti II who concluded a peace with the Xorians in exchange for paying tribute to them.
705BCE: King Sargon II of Assyria mounted an expedition against the Xorians to reclaim Urartu for the Assyrian domain. Sargon II didn’t account for the strength of the Xorians led by King Kitanotaga. Sargon II was slain in the fighting and his army retreated.
695BCE: King Kitanotaga passed away after an excessive drinking bout. His daughter, Queen Jakontago, succeeded him. To strengthen her grasp on the reins of power, Jakontago led the Xorians in an invasion of Phrygia. She sacked the Phrygian capital of Gordium and killed King Midas II. The new queen returned to Xoria with wagons full of gold and other luxuries looted in the conquest.
