The Treaty of Lehpold (Hesurian: Vertrag von Lehpold; Lavish: Tratado de Lepólda) was the most significant and most inclusive of the series of peace treaties, ending the Great War at large. Representatives of all involved and associated nations came together at the Lichtenwald Palace in Lehpold, Mascylla, to draft the treaty, and it was finally signed on 10 March 1917. The negotiations took ten months after the capitulation of the Central Alliance to conclude the treaty and its articles. The treaty formally ended the state of war and hostilities between the Armala Coalition, its associated powers and the Central Alliance. The treaty was ratified and registered by the Secretariat of the Assembly of Nations on its founding date, 1 December 1917.

The treaty and its signatories required the Central Alliance to disband and its member states to disarm, concede territories, and pay reparations to the Allied countries. The scope of these demands have been heavily criticised, mainly whether the treaty had established a "Carthaginian peace", a subject that has since been debated and reviewed by historians and economists. Others, most notably figures of the Mascyllary Kingdom, have described the treating of the Second Cuthish Empire as too liently.

The treaty effectively altered the balance of power in the world. Cuthland collapsed a few years later, the demands of the treaty having accelerated its political and economic decay: while Cuthland was initially stable, it collapsed into civil war, being overthrown by its successor, the State of Cuthland under X. Revolutions and social unrest resulting from the war's devastation and instability hit almost every Berean country, with nations such as Mascylla and Dulebia falling into disarray, while Valimia's empire was forced to disband. Enmities created or strengthened by the treaty would later trigger the Melasian Crisis and lay the foundations of the Great Game. Template:Aurorum
