Daegarth Mithmellon, 22nd Overlord of the Duel of Swords, bore for three years the dubious honor of the shortest reign on record. His challenge to Martigan Crow was fought a bare two days after issuance, something far more commonly- and easily- done in past times. Though records do not record by what margin Dae defeated Martigan, his success placed him in the records among the few who have been able to bear the title Overlord.
No sooner was the official announcement of the new Overlord made than challenge was issued by the Cleric Athlstan, Renegade Baron of the Seventh. Daegarth scheduled this challenge with the same swiftness Martigan had his. Nine days after assuming the title, Dae surrendered it to the Cleric and became Baron of the Seventh.
