The Siege of Sanjezal was a two year-long siege during the Great War of Aegis, led by dwarven forces commanded by Grand King Thorik Braveaxe, alongside his allies in the Kingdom of Oren, led by King Enor Sheffield, and the Kaxil Clan, led by Vulgrak'Kaxil. Meanwhile, the defending orcish forces were commanded by Rex Mogroka'Gorkil. The siege followed shortly after the Battle of the Red Wastes, from which the combined forces of Urguan and Oren had successfully routed the orcs back through the inner gates of their capital city. The battle itself was long and bloody, both sides making gains and losses as the conflict wore on. However, as the orcs were nearing breaking point against overwhelming odds, the Sariants of the Teutonic Order, led by Hochmeister Gaius Marius, arrived just in time to reinforce the defending orcs. With both sides grown tired of continuous battle, the Great War was brought to an end by a treaty arranged by Rex Mogroka'Gorkil of Krugmar, and Grand Councilor Valen Blackaxe of Urguan. However, the effects of the war stretched far and wide, growing cemented in relations between the descendant races during years to come.
