In {{Year|3E 403}}, Lord {{Lore Link|Graddock}} of Anticlere attempted to host a parlay between King {{Lore Link|Lysandus}} of Daggerfall and King {{Lore Link|Camaron}} of Sentinel, to end the War of Betony on proper terms. However, the meeting went awry and the town was left in ruins. Their armies had split to the Ravennian Forest and the Yeorth Burrowland respectively and met in combat at the Cryngaine Field. In the midst of the battle, the Dowager-Queen {{Lore Link|Nulfaga}} ordered her {{Lore Link|dragon}}-familiar, {{Lore Link|Skakmat}} to shroud the battlefield in an unnatural fog. In the blinding fog, it was reported that King Lysandus was killed by a stray arrow and the War of Betony was over.{{Ref|name=DCN|{{Cite Book|The Daggerfall Chronicles/Narrative|ns_base=Books}}}} Ever since the battle, a monument dedicated to Lysandus was erected in the Cryngaine Field.{{Ref|name=DFMedora|[[Daggerfall:Lysandus' Revelation#Return to Medora|Medora Direnni]]'s dialogue in [[Daggerfall:Daggerfall|Daggerfall]]}}
