Angry merchants from Wayrest called their fellow Bretons to secede from the Alessian Empire circa {{Year|1E 2300}}, citing prejudice against elven heritage. They emphasized the increasing Imperial tithes to support their position.{{ref|[[Online:Stormhaven Antiquities#Secession Stamp Block|Secession Stamp Block]] Antiquities codex entries in [[Online:ESO|ESO]]: [[Online:Greymoor|Greymoor]]}} High Rock formally reasserted its independence in {{Year|1E 2305}} in response to the Alessian Order's excesses. The Legions of Piety and Grace were sent to Bangkorai under Abbot-General Priscus Mactator to suppress the Bretons, but the Imperials fell at the Bangkorai Garrison.{{ref|group=BK|name=BSOHR}} High Rock was independent once more, but the secession was not a clean break. The Alessian collapse struck the stubborn Bretons harder than the other races, as they had no unified governing structure. Warring fiefs would rage across the peninsula in the coming centuries, and pretender-kings attempted to assume control in place of the Alessians.{{ref|[[Online:Stormhaven Antiquities#Noble Knight's Rest|Noble Knight's Rest]] Antiquities codex entries in [[Online:ESO|ESO]]: [[Online:Greymoor|Greymoor]]}}
An alliance known as the [[Lore:League of Unrest|League of Unrest]] was created sometime in the First Era between Daggerfall, Wayrest, and Balfiera, as a response to the hostilities of Cyrodiil; The timeframe, along with which Empire was involved is unknown, however.{{ref|name=RGMaiko|[[Redguard:Maiko K'Elmar|Maiko K'Elmar]]'s dialogue in [[Redguard:Redguard|TESA: Redguard]]}}
The {{Lore Link|Second Empire}} was established in {{Year|1E 2703}} after [[Lore:Reman I|Reman Cyrodiil]] suppressed the {{Lore Link|Akaviri}} invasion of [[Lore:Tamriel|Tamriel]] at the battle of [[Lore:Pale Pass|Pale Pass]]. Reman formed modern-day Cyrodiil using the {{Lore Link|Colovian Estates}}, {{Lore Link|Nibenay}} and parts of High Rock.{{Ref|group=BK|name=PGE1C|{{Cite Book|PGE|1|Cyrodiil}}}} As part of the Second Empire, High Rock's soldiers participated in the 80-year [[Lore:Four Score War|Four Score War]] against [[Lore:Morrowind|Morrowind]]. In {{Year|1E 2920}}, the final year of the War and First Era, the Breton Storig of Farrun commanded Emperor [[Lore:Reman III|Reman III]]'s vanguard at the Battle of Bodrum, where the Imperial army suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the [[Lore:Dunmer|Dunmer]]. At the same time, a Breton man named Cassyr Whitley of Dwynnen defected from the Imperial army and spied on the Dunmer's behalf. After Whitley's faulty information cost Morrowind the fortress of [[Lore:Ald Marak|Ald Marak]], he returned to High Rock, where he crossed paths with Dunmeri exile [[Lore:Turala|Turala]]. After Turala's coven and child were lost to an Orcish raid, Whitley falsely convinced the woman that the attack was the work of assassins in the employ of Duke [[Lore:Brindisi Dorom|Brindisi Dorom]] of [[Lore:Mournhold|Mournhold]], prompting her to summon [[Lore:Mehrunes Dagon|Mehrunes Dagon]] in a misguided act of revenge.{{Ref|group=BK|name=2920TLYOTFE|{{Cite Book|2920, The Last Year of the First Era}}}}
