Battle

The Battle of Maribor was one of many battles that occurred during the Second Northern War. After seizing the fortresses of Mayena and Razwan and conquering Sodden, the Nilfgaardian Army crossed the southern border of Temeria, pushing towards the north. King Foltest's troops had stopped at the fortress in Maribor. The two forces clashed in the area, with the Temerian army suffering defeat, unable to retreat back north. Nilfgaard's forces besieged Maribor's fortress, but it was still reasonably well defended. In their rush to push northward, the Nilfgaardian forces stretched their supply lines to their limits and created too large a front. The Nilfgaardian troops were too few in number to cut Maribor off entirely, and the upcoming winter forced the Nilfgaardians to lift the siege and pull back to Sodden. Any further offensive on Temeria was put off until the spring.
