The Taris Siege was an engagement fought by the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian Neo-Crusader forces over Taris during the Mandalorian Wars early in 3963 BBY. It was one of the first battles fought during the Mandalorian invasion of the Republic.
With a growing level of Mandalorian encroachment into the Outer Rim Territories during the period, Republic military forces grew increasingly stretched across that region, and were likewise hard-pressed to counter any major planetary assault.
The Mandalorian invaders outnumbered the Republic forces and they were unable to successfully defend the planet. A Jedi enclave had been established in the Taris Upper City prior to the invasion, but turmoil gripped the facility in 3964 BBY after several Jedi students were found murdered. The actual conquest of the world was a siege which lasted at least several weeks.
Ultimately, the Mandalorians were successful in their conquest of the planet; upon which, it must be noted, were a number of the last Cathar refugee-survivors from the Mandalorian genocide of their species, having fled there years previously. A resistance force, including the world's swoop gangs, was established in the Lower City. The precise length of the Mandalorian occupation of Taris is as yet unknown, but it would eventually end with the retaking of the planet by the Jedi Knights under the command of Revan, during the Second Battle of Taris.
