The Whitecloak War was a conflict between the Children of the Light, led by Pedron Niall, Altara, Murandy and Illian, led by Mattin Stepaneos. It began in 957NE when Illian and Murandy concerns about Whitecloak plans for Altara escelated into all out conflict. The Whitecloaks were initially succesfull, but took more land than they could hold and the initial borders were eventually reaffirmed (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 14).
