Gilead

Gilead, a power-hungry warrior, rose up in battle against Coriantumr, the last of the Jaredite kings. Coriantumr defeated Gilead in the wilderness, but Gilead later rebounded with his forces and seized the throne. Meanwhile both sides spent two years recovering from their losses, Coriantumr in the wilderness and Gilead with the help of “secret combinations”. Gilead’s own high priest murdered him as Gilead sat upon his throne.
