The Fall Of Trantor
In 260FE, 12327 years after the Trantorian Confederation officialy became the Galactic Empire, the empire Trantor ruled had shrunk to a remnant of the core worlds. Under the Emperor Dagobert VIII civil war broke out. The rebel leader Gilmer led his troops through the remains of the world-city and sacked the former galactic capital. Many idealists fought to protect the Galactic Library before signing a peace treaty with Gilmer. After the Fall Trantor was reduced to a poor agricultural world. The world city was ruthlessly torn apart, everything usable being shipped off, mainly for use as raw materials. Many became rich out of the Fall. The Trantorians weren't included.
