The Battle of Morshu's Mill was arguably the most decisive battle of the Etrandish Succession War of 718, during which the combined forces of Ladislaus Londbert and House Osriking - later known as King Bryant of Etrand - have defeated the forces of the remaining two Tondbertling brothers, whose forces outnumbered that of Londbert.

During the battle, Kerlon Tondbertling betrayed his brother Zylf, and was killed by his own men during his failed attempt to have his brother assassinated during the battle. Zylf was imprisoned after the battle.
