Conquest of Wallis

After the conquest of Steys, Bernard III set his sights on Wallis, a coastal kingdom renowned for the strength of their navy. In ten years (1689-1699), Bernard built a navy to rival Wallis from the ground up, assisted by the shipwrights of Steys. The port facilities at Commeragh were expanded and sixteen ships of the line were berthed and manned there in 1700. With the ships from Commeragh and veteran armies from the Highland Regiments, Agraine conquered Wallis at sea during the Battle of Donovan’s Reef and at land at the Battle of Lindinhallow.
