When Thassad II of Hammerfell died, Hammerfell was plunged into a civil war between the Crowns and the Forebears. The Crowns, led by Prince A'Tor, won victory after victory, but the Forebears, sensing their imminent defeat, became allies with the Septim Empire and allowed the Emperor to bring his forces in to conquer Hammerfell. The Empire's forces proved superior to the Crowns, defeating them numerous times. Prince A'Tor, sensing the way the wind was blowing, decided to retreat to the capital city Stros M'Kai.
The Crowns fought bravely, but Emperor Tiber Septim, knowing about A'Tor's victories at sea against the Forebears, sent his best naval commander, Admiral Richton, and a massive Imperial fleet to lay waste to the Crown Navy. The ships lined up and then charged into the gaps between the enemy ships. Prince A'Tor, seeing Admiral Richton's flagship, Dragon, alone behind his lines, turned his ship around and ordered his archers to fire at the ship with flaming arrows, but A'Tor himself was hit with a poisoned arrow by Richton's assassin. A'Tor's mages attempted to save A'Tor and the fleet but they were surrounded, outmanned, and outgunned by the Imperial forces.
With the defeat of the Crowns, Hammerfell was incorporated into the Empire as a province and Admiral Richton was made Provisional Governor of Stros M'Kai.
