In this animated documentary, we continue our exploration of the Frank Herbert’s Dune Universe and the Dune lore surrounding its most famous units of history.
We previously released a Dune lore primer called Welcome to Arrakis which will help introduce you to the setting: https://youtu.be/EaDxLCKFvlE
In this episode, we look specifically at the origins of the Sardaukar and how they rose to become the most feared soldiers of the known universe.
We begin with the initial colonists who settled the planet of Salusa Secundus and how their descendants eventually were reduced to savage tribes warring for existence across a brutal landscape.
Eventually, the Sardau tribe would rise to claim dominion of the planet and forge a regional Empire.
However, it would not be until the chaos which followed the Butlerian Jihad that they would truly emerge as a great power.
At the Battle Of Corrin they would ultimately grind the Landsraad to a standstill and crown the first Padishah Emperor.
We cover the equipment, training, and organization which made the Sardaukar of the imperial period so formidable.
This includes their Sardaukar religion and Sardaukar chant so unique to the mindset of their forces, which continued to be produced from the prison planet of Salusa Secundus.
Then we cover their extensive service history, which culminates in the Battle Of Arrakis against House Atreides and the Fremen.
What units of history and Dune lore should we cover next?

This Dune lore documentary was very well done and narrated.
I hope that they will do a video like this for each faction in the Dune franchise, especially the Bene Gesserit, Fish Speakers, Honored Matres, and Valkyries.

Hello, The Chronicles Of History,
Yeah! They did a great job, and they even used The Dune Encyclopedia as a reference; it is a shame that it is out of print, I got to read most of it thanks to a former coworker who owned a copy of it.
Thank you for commenting,
