King Amahl el Shoon II was the second ruler of the Shoon Dynasty of Tethyr and the period of time known as the Shoon Traitorum.[4]

DescriptionEdit

Amahl II was a wizard who was corrupt and completely loyal to his grandfather, the Pasha of Calimshan.[2]

RelationshipsEdit

Amahl was the great-grandson of Akkabar Shoon the Elder and the nephew of Amahl Shoon I[1] and his sister Queen Arhymeria, wife of Nishan Ithal II.[2] His father was Akkabar Shoon the Younger.[6]

Amahl had a single son,[5] named Amahl after him,[4] and at least two daughters,[7] one of which married Rahman Cormal, who would become king of Tethyr under the Shoon Imperium.[1][7]

ActivitiesEdit

During Amahl's reign, the new capital of Shoonach was constructed, from stone carried away from the sacked city of Ithmong.[1][2]

HistoryEdit

When Akkabar the Elder realized that King Amahl I would not be his puppet, he sent Amahl II to Amahl I's court to be his heir. Since the elder Amahl had no children of his own, he was unable to refuse.[2]

In the Year of Ruins, −3 DR, Amahl II slew his "treacherous" uncle with poison[6][3] and then took the throne of Tethyr.[3][5]

As his first act as king, Amahl II accused Agaryn Ithal of murdering his uncle[1] and then began a purge of Clan Ithal. After waging an eighteen-month war,[1][5] nearly the entire clan had been rounded up and executed, and the city of Ithmong was destroyed.[1][3]

After his victory with the fall of Ithmong, on Greengrass in the Year of Gruesome Streams,[1][5] Amahl II swore fealty to his grandfather, making the nation of Tethyr a puppet state of Calimshan, and elevating his grandfather to be the true ruler of Tethyr.[1][6][3][5]

Amahl II died from disease[7] at the age of 52 years in 15 DR,[4][6][3] and his only son, Amahl III, succeeded him as puppet king of Tethyr.[5]
