{{Year|3E 120}}:
The fifteen-year-old [[Lore:Kintyra II|Empress Kintyra Septim II]], daughter of [[Lore:Antiochus|Antiochus]], was {{sic|coroneted|coronated}} on the 3rd day of First Seed. Her uncles [[Lore:Magnus Septim|Magnus]], King of [[Lore:Lilmoth|Lilmoth]], and [[Lore:Cephorus|Cephorus]], King of [[Lore:Gilane|Gilane]], were in attendance, but her aunt, [[Lore:Potema|Potema]], the Wolf Queen of [[Lore:Solitude|Solitude]], had been banished from the court. Once back in her kingdom, Queen Potema began assembling the rebellion, which was to be known as the [[Lore:War of the Red Diamond|War of the Red Diamond]]. All the allies she had made over the years of disgruntled kings and nobles joined forces with her against the new Empress.
The first early strikes against the Empire were entirely successful. Throughout [[Lore:Skyrim|Skyrim]] and northern [[Lore:High Rock|High Rock]], the Imperial army found themselves under attack. Potema and her forces washed over [[Lore:Tamriel (continent)|Tamriel]] like a plague, inciting riots and insurrections everywhere they touched. In the autumn of the year, the loyal Duke of [[Lore:Glenpoint|Glenpoint]] on the coast of High Rock sent an urgent request for reinforcements from the Imperial Army, and Kintyra, to inspire the resistance to the Wolf Queen, led the army herself.
