Goelitz was a rival of nearby Ylix. The planet became embroiled in a war with its neighbor that lasted for a number of years. Goelitz and Ylix both used underhand tactics in the conflict, with either side employing increasingly vicious acts of barbarism and terrorism to outdo the other. The local Imperial Moff promised to bring a peaceful end to the civil war, but this vow went unfulfilled.
By the end of the war, the natives of Ylix had defeated the peoples of Goelitz, and presumably conquered and occupied the planet.
