In 1347 DR, the Ten Black Days of Eleint began after a coup attempt by Prince Alemander V on the previous day burned Castle Tethyr to the ground, killing King Alemander IV and the royal family of Tethyr. The Crown Prince was betrayed by his co-conspirator, General Sharboneth, and both died in the fire. The terror of the Ten Black Days spread as oppressed peasants were whipped into a murderous frenzy by Calishite agitators to hunt down most of the nobility. Many castles and temples were destroyed in the mayhem.
