The Thanedd Coup is a book in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.

Journal entry Edit

The coup at Thanedd Island was one of the most significant events in history. In that memorable day, during a sorcerers' summit, the magicians loyal to the Northern kingdoms intended to arrest those of their brotherhood that conspired with Nilfgaard . The conspirators, on the other hand, prepared a coup against their confratres. They secretly let Scoia'tael and Nilfgaardian agents on Thanedd. Many members of both factions died on the bloody battle that raged in the palace chambers, yet in the end the traitors had to flee for their lives. This event greatly reduced the mages' confidence and many fell out of favor of the kings they served until then.
