Three hundred and seventy years before the events described in Croaker's Books of the North, there was a woman known as the White Rose who opposed the Dominator. With the help of the common people, she managed to overthrow his rule. There aren't many details on the the duration of the military campaign, but according to Croaker's research, 125,000 lives were lost in the battles waged across the Great Forest between the Dominator and the White Rose. One could also argue on the achieved results as the Dominator wasn't destroyed for good, but, after an outburst of violence against the Dominator's loyalists, the north came to know "centuries of peace".
