Jasson III of Conté (pronounced JAHss-ohn of kohn-TAY), called The Conqueror or the Old King, was King of Tortall during the 300s HE.

Biography

Jasson was married to a noblewoman of the Naxen family, his third cousin. It was a tradition for the Conté family and the Naxen family to marry, but not as much as to make them too inbred. He had at least two sons. The first, Roald I, who would become king at Jasson's death, and the second the father of Roger of Conté.

Throughout his time as King, he conquered many lands, including Barzun, the country that used to lie to the south of Tortall which took up the Great Southern Desert, where the Bazhir lived. He also conquered to the east and to the north, expanding his borders greatly. One of his generals was also a member of the Naxen family, and was his right hand man[1]. 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[2]. His great-grandson Prince Jasson of Conté was named after him.
