The Battle of a Fortnight's Length (-110 CY) was a pivotal historical event that solidified the power of the ancient Oeridian kingdom of Aerdy. After the defeat of Nyrondal cavalry squadrons in this conflict, the Kingdom of Aerdy became known as the Great Kingdom, its king presiding over the Sunndi swamplands of the south, westward along the shores of the Teflic Gulf and the Sea of Yar, to the Nyr Dyv north to the Shield Lands and the Flan-dominated land of Tenh.

The Oeridian hero-goddess Daern may have been present at the battle, for her mortal life is said to have ended shortly thereafter.
