The Succession Riots were an armed conflict on the planet Cinnabar that led to the destruction of the original Senate House in Xenos.

Also destroyed were most of the palaces of wealthy families on Dobbins Hill and a part of the Divan, on the south and southeast margins of Pentacrest Vale; including the the old Mundy residence.

The event occurred in 4847 CE, about 300 years before Daniel Leary's career.2:2
