The War of the Glorious Empire was a period in the history of the World, lasting almost two decades, when the Glorious Empire was expanding as it sought to bring all human kindoms and territories of the world under the control of a single ruler, Emperor Solarius, and exterminate all the magical creatures in existence. This period is considered by the people of the Glorious Empire as a golden age for all mankind (at least before the Fourth Overlord joined the battle), while for all the magical creatures and independent human factions in the world this was considered a dark age of repression, war and genocide. The war ended with the Sack of Empire City, the death of emperor Solarius by the hand of the Fourth Overlord and the disband of the Elven Resistance. The last period of the conflict is shown in the game Overlord II.
