Eragon, Saphira, Arya, Nasuada, Roran, the elves, dwarves, and the Varden fought long and hard, through thick and thin, and lost many of their bravest warriors during the series’ many battles.

Having finally witnessed the end of Galbatorix, we can look back and reflect on the skirmishes that helped further the Varden’s cause. Seven major clashes took place during the series, beginning with the Battle Under Farthen Dûr and ending with the Battle of Urû’baen.
