==History==
 
===During the Butlerian Jihad===
 
{{XD|After the [[Titans]] rebelled against [[Omnius]], they decided after [[Bela Tegeuse]], to move to Richese in [[164 BG]].
 
 
Eventually, after remained for about 70 years, ravaged by Omnius' forces, [[Agamemnon]] was advised by [[Yorek Thurr]], moved to [[Hessra]] in [[108 BG]].
 
 
Richese was devastated by Omnius soon after but retaken again by the Titans after the [[Great Purge]].}}
 
 
===During the Corrino Empire===
 
{{XD|A once powerful planet, it was the ancestral planet of [[House Richese]]. At one point a main source of [[Heighliner]]s for the [[Spacing Guild]]. The planet and it's moon, [[Korona]], were famous for technological innovations which included [[Richesian mirrors]] and [[No-ship]]s.
 
 
Unfotunately House Richese made an ill advised decision to engage in full-scale economic warfare with [[House Vernius]] of [[Ix]]. This led to their slow demise and fostered the popular opinion that House Richese only made copies of Ixian inventions. Part of this loss is attributed to Count [[Ilban Richese]] who spent more time with his family then with his businesses. As a result of this failure, Ix took over the lucrative Heighliner construction.
 
 
Years later, Korona was destroyed by Imperial [[Sardaukar]] forces, as it was being used to store [[Spice Melange|spice]] illegally.}}
 
 
===Destruction by the Honored Matres===
 
{{XD|After the [[Ascension of House Atreides]], and [[The Scattering]] promulgated by the death of [[Leto Atreides II]]; Richese still had production facilities which produced starships and other weapons for humanity. The [[Mother Commander]] [[Murbella]], leader of the [[New Sisterhood]], contracted with the [[Factory Commissioner]] and other Richesian authorities to build ships and weapons in the oncoming battle against the [[Enemy]].
 
 
However, seven years afterwards, before many weapons could be delivered to the Sisterhood, a rebel [[Honored Matres]] group which opposed Murbella, led by [[Hellica]], which did not wish to merge with the Sisterhood; attacked Richese with [[Obliterator]] weapons, and reduced the planet to slag and rubble.}}
