Jasson III of Conté (pronounced JAHss-ohn of kohn-TAY), called The Conqueror or the Old King, was King of Tortall from 396 HE until he abdicated in favor of his son in 422 HE.

Biography

Crown Prince

Jasson married Daneline of Jesslaw in 386 HE. Daneline was a noblewoman of Barzun, and it presumably strengthened Jasson's own claim to the country and was not a marital alliance. While he was still Crown Prince, he retook the western bank of the River Drell from Tusaine.[1] He had at least two sons. His firstborn was Roald and the second was the father of Roger of Conté.

King of Tortall

He succeeded Baird IV as King of Tortall in 396 HE. He conquered Barzun four years into his reign in 400. At some point, he appointed Gareth I of Naxen to be his King's Champion, as the man would then go on to becoming King's Champion of Roald V of Conté, and Jonathan IV of Conté for a brief period. In 415 HE, the Battle of Joyous Forest took place.

One of his generals was also a member of the Naxen family, and was his right hand man[2]. Another notable general of his was the famed war hero Emry of Haryse, who presumably earned his status in Jasson's conquests.

Legacy

A statue has been erected in Corus, where Palace Way met Gold Street, in his honour[3]. His great-grandson Prince Jasson of Conté was named after him.
