The Ages of Conflict are significant periods in Covenant History. There have been thirty-nine ages of conflict.
The First Age of Conflict Edit
The First Age of Conflict may have happened many thousands of years after the Age of Abandonment. It is believed that in this Age, the Sangheili and the San'Shyuum races began fighting each other, beginning with the Sangheili-San'Shyuum war, due to different religious beliefs on the appropriate treatment of Forerunner objects.
The Thirty-Ninth Age of Conflict Edit
The Thirty-Ninth Age of Conflict was ushered in by the Unggoy Rebellion, which arose from a long list of grievances finally set aflame by the Infusion Incident. This Age of Conflict led to the 23rd Age of Doubt.
