In Calovinia, King Sakiorone was having a big feast. Everyone was happy except Sir Hanianon. He was frustrated because they were defeated every time they attacked their enemies.

The next day, he went to the blacksmith and asked the blacksmiths to make some ‘Dardanelles Guns’. ‘Dardanelles Gun’ was a type of cannon that was used by the armies of the Ottoman Empire and was also known as ‘Great Bombard’.

A month later, one of the Arguay’s scouts went to Calovinia asking for help. The Calovinian king agreed to help the Arguays so they could test their new weapon. He sent a troop of army and they brought along the Dardanelles Guns. The Dardanelles Guns were great weapon and they defeated the armies of Jupron.

King Antire the 20th of Jupron was very angry. He wanted to attack Calovinia. The king said to his armies,”Go and attack Calovinia now. I’m very sure we’ll win”.

At that moment, Uanuf Ali and 50 other great knights of Calovinia were hiding at the back of the king’s tent. They came inside and Uanuf Ali said to the king, “Do not count your chickens before they are hatched”. Uanuf Ali was one of the grandsons of the Calovinian king.

The Jupron attacked them but the Calovinian knights defeated the Jupron. And then it was the time for a duel between Uanuf Ali and King Antire the 20th.

Suddenly Queen Yarmadurna and Prince Lamandor of Jupron rushed into the tent to attack Uanuf Ali. But one of the Brotosh armies who had just arrived saw them and he stopped them from attacking Uanuf Ali.

King Antire the 20th went to hide in one of the rooms inside his castle. Prince Lamandor tried to attack Uanuf Ali again but Sir Hanianon pulled Uanuf Ali to safety and they went back to Calovinia.

A few days later, while Sir Hanianon was hunting, he met three tired and hungry villagers asking for help. They told Sir Hanianon that they ran away because Jupron’s armies was going to attack their village. Sir Hanianon helped them and after that he asked the villagers where did they came from.

One of the villager’s daughter named Aymijah answered, “Kalapaga”. So he went to Kalapaga with several other knights to help them defend their village from Jupron’s attacks. By the time they arrived there, the place was already under attack and Jupron armies had destroyed a large part of the village.

Sir Hanianon and the other knights helped to defend Kalapaga. But it was too late and Kalapaga was defeated. Sir Hanianon told them, “Don’t worry, the darkest hour is just before the dawn”.

After everything was okay, Sir Hanianon went exploring with Prince Jaurthrur.

They rode to the top of a high hill and found the location where Cinra’s castle was.

They rushed back to Calovinia.

As soon as they reached Calovinia, Prince Jaurthrur ordered all of the knights to attack Cinra.

Sir Hanianon was scared because it was going to be a big battle and he was just a junior knight.

But Prince Jaurthrur was their leader, so whenever Prince Jaurthrur ordered him to do something, he had to obey.

The dark brown squares are their artillery, the pink dots are their cavalries, the red dots are their archers on the castle wall, ready to attack and the gray dots are their infantries crossing their drawbridge. Across  the drawbridge, the grey dots are the Calovinian infantries and the purple dots are their cavalries. 

During the battle, a crossbow man aimed his crossbow towards Sir Hanianon.

The crossbow man almost shot the arrow when the falling rocks from the castle wall hit his crossbow, resulting the arrow to hit his own foot!

While the castle of Cinra was under attack, some of Cinra’s armies went to attack Calovinia but King Sakiorone and his troops were so strong that they easily defeated their enemy.

Meanwhile, Sir Hanianon and the Calovinian knights and armies had to retreat because the Cinra armies were too strong for them.

So they went home with less armies because a lot of their armies were killed during the battle.
