During Lysandus' rule, Daggerfall was one of the dominant kingdoms in the {{Lore Link|Iliac Bay}} region, along with {{Lore Link|Sentinel (kingdom)}} and {{Lore Link|Wayrest (kingdom)}}. However, there were often clashes between these powers, and it was a petty land dispute with Sentinel that erupted into the full-scale war that cut short Lysandus' life.{{ref|name=Daggerfall}} The king was killed during the {{Lore Link|War of Betony}} in {{Year|3E 403}}; while the exact details are vague, historians from both sides of the conflict record that when the armies of Daggerfall and Sentinel met at {{Lore Link|Cryngaine Field}}, a mysterious fog descended upon the battlefield. When it lifted, Lysandus was found dead, shot in the throat by an archer's arrow.{{ref|name=NWOB|{{Cite Book|Newgate's War Of Betony}}}}{{ref|name=FWOB|{{Cite Book|Fav'te's War Of Betony}}}}
