The Al Kharid–Menaphos War was a series of conflicts between the emirate of Al Kharid, located at the northern fringes of the Kharidian Desert, and the great city Menaphos in the far south. The war lasted for centuries and is said to have resulted from the Menaphites' attempts to expand their territory northwards.[1]

The exact details of the war are unknown. The campaigns of conquest have been fairly unsuccessful, not least due to the harsh climate in the desert, which makes it difficult for large armies to travel the great distance between Al Kharid and Menaphos.[2]

Currently, a strained peace exists between the two cities.[3]
