Right. I'd have to go digging again but there was another entry that spawned this connection for me.

There's an entry, that as I recall, talks about Kellhus' Excision of an Ancient-North Norsirai hero that the Tydonni (I think) held culturally significant. The entry mentions that after Kellhus Excised him from the Record, he also killed a few nobles who wouldn't stop celebrating "That Hero's Day" (sorry, don't have the book near me right now - fuck, I really need to go back to having books out and within reach when I'm on the forum).

Aulyanau the Conqueror (895—950)—Legendary ruler of the Cond who defeated Cel-Ongonean at the Battle of River Axau, leading to the Breaking of Ūmerau and the beginning of the Cond Yoke. His subsequent campaigns would unite the Norsirai for the first time since Uskelt Wolfheart. Since references to Aulyanau typically signalled pan-Norsirai sympathies among Middlenorth caste-nobles (particularly the Tydonni), Anasūrimbor Kellhus declared an Excision in 4128, striking all record of his name and famously executing several notables who continued to pretend that such a personage had ever existed.

And now that Kellhus is dead, I will guarantee you that they will go right back to celebrating "that hero".

Quite possibly.

Someone has said (in our world) that we suffer death twice, once when we die and once when our name is uttered for the last time.
