The Dread War was one of the most devastating events on Cradle.
The Dread War started with twelve Monarchs, the previous generation, attacking the Wandering Titan in an attempt to finally destroy the Dreadgods.
However, the other three Dreadgods awoke to defend their brother, and this began the greatest slaughter of Monarchs since the creation of Cradle.
In the same year as it started, the Dread War concluded.
Only two Monarchs and a few Heralds survived. They convened to organise the Uncrowned King tournament, made to raise new Monarchs from the next generation. Reigan Shen was the winner of this tournament.
