In ancient times, a series of crusades were undertaken by a group of Mandalorian warriors known as the Mandalorian crusaders, during which they came into conflict with the Jedi Order. During a crusade into the galaxy's Inner Rim, they devastated the planet Ubduria out of contempt for the natives Ubdurians, who they viewed as dishonorable cowards. Cubist murals of Mandalorian crusaders fighting Jedi were created during these ancient crusades.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Mandalorian crusades were first depicted in a mural in "The Mandalore Plot," the twelfth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' second season, which originally aired on January 29, 2010. The conflict was established in The Essential Atlas, a Star Wars Legends reference book written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace and released on August 18, 2009.

Did you notice the murals in Saturday's episode depicting battles between ancient Mandalorians and Jedi Knights? The plaza mural at the foot of the royal platform has an enormous cubist artwork done in a style reminiscent of Pablo Picasso's famed work, Guernica." (screenshot)
