What was the Siege of Mandalore? The Siege of Mandalore also known as the Battle of Mandalore or the attack on Mandalore, which was in the Outer Rim world of Mandalore at the near end of the Clone Wars. It was a very bloody battle that saw Republic military intervention on the side of the Resistance (Loyal to Bo-Katan) and the Loyalists/Traditionalists (Loyal to Maul).

Bic was a very talyc battle ibac saw republic military intervention bat te eso be te resistance (loyal at bo-katan) bal te loyalists/traditionalists (loyal at maul).
How It Really Happened:
Ahsoka, along with CT-7567 “Rex” and the Darksaberless Mand’alor Bo-Katan Kryze arrived at the Mando’ade Fatherland in 3 Republic Venator-Class Star Destroyers, a fleet consisting of LAAT/i Gunships and the fabulous Kom’rk-class fighter/transports came raining down upon Sundari from high orbit. The Resistance (Allied with Bo.) received a transmission from Prine Minister Almec, telling them that Republic forces have violated an old treaty and Bo, herself, would be seen as an enemy in the eyes of the People for this reprehensible course of action. Bravely, Kryze stated that she did not care what anyone thought and that she was gunning for him since he was nothing more than a puppet to Maul.
Kryze then contacted Ursa Wren, mother of Sabine Wren and her younger brother Tristan Wren, and wife of Alrich Wren, for any information on where Maul was. Wren reported that the Rogue Sith was in the city, but was unable to acquire intel of his precise location.

Meanwhile, Almec ordered Gar Saxon to prepare to defend Sundari from invaders, and ordered Rook Kast to inform the rest of the Syndicate. The invading forces were soon ambushed by flying Loyalist Super Commandos. The Resistance took flight via jetpacks to fight their Loyalist enemies. Ahsoka fought any Super Commandos she found, clearing them out of a friendly gunship before landing on a damaged LAAT coming in hot towards Sundari.
She found that the pilot couldn’t eject and assisted him. Tano was reinforced by Wren and her troops, as well as Clones. Sadly, this bloody battle would bring nothing but destruction, fire, even Death itself to much of Mandalore. Mentioned only one other time, was the Night of a Thousand Tears, where gunships used their weaponry to devastate fields of Mandalorian recruits.

The Assault on the Mandalorian Capital of Sundari
Both Resistance and Republic forces were quick enough to take the shipping docks, but Saxon and Kast’s troops began their push. Almec was informed of this and ordered the Loyalist duo to head to the Undercity and would be met with reinforcements. However, Maul was expecting the assault and was waiting down in the sewers, planning to trap for the Jedi, hoping for Kenobi.
Ahsoka went to the Undercity, which saw the death of Vaughn.
Confrontation with the Illegitimate Ruler of Mandalore
Much, much later, upon seeing Maul sitting like a punk on the Mandalorian Throne, Kryze angrily charged at him while firing her blasters, but Maul, being a complete Chad, easily deflected the shots with the Force before levitating and using the Force to choke her, mockingly asking her if that was any way to treat her "rightful" ruler. Rightful ruler, my cybernetic right eye.
Maul said that, as a sign of "good faith," he was returning Jesse, who was captured in the Sewers, to them. He used the Force to remove the ARC trooper's binders. Though he was very traumatized by the ordeal, poor Jesse was somewhat hesitant before stumbling across the room. He apologized to Rex and Tano for giving Maul the information he had wanted. Ahsoka asked Rex to get Jesse out of there. As the two clones left, Saxon's forces outside began their attack, with explosions being heard from inside the room. “Uh, one of you might want to deal with that.”-Maul. Tano insisted that Kryze go fight as her people needed her, leaving the former Padawan alone with Maul.
After a bit of tension, conversation between Maul and Ahsoka turned to the machinations of the mysterious Darth Sidious. Tano told Maul that if he surrendered, he could help the Jedi Council stop Sidious and his plans. Maul countered with an offer to Tano to join him, pointing out that they had both been abandoned by the Force-using orders they had previously served and suggesting that together they would have the power to destroy his former master. Internally, Tano considered the Rogue Sith’s offer as the windows on one side of the room were shattered in by the warring Mandalorians outside, and agreed. However, there was a catch: Maul had to answer one, simple question with a straightforward answer: “what did Maul want with Anakin Skywalker?” Maul told her of his visions that Skywalker was being groomed as Sidious' next apprentice, and that killing him would damage and could potentially end the Dark Lord's plans.
Righteously calm and angry at the same time, but without starting down the Dark Path, Ahsoka stated that she did not believe him and the duel began. During the fight, Maul abandoned his own Loyalists to save his own skin. A true King would never abandon his soldiers, but it’s not a perfect Galaxy, is it?
Later in the duel, once again Maul offered Tano one last chance to join him, but Tano once again refused and was forced to dodge Maul's furious attacks. When she gained the upper hand, Ahsoka managed to grab Maul's lightsaber and throw him over her back, sending him hurtling to Sundari's surface. However, she caught him with the Force as Maul cried out for her to let him go and to let him die. As she held him in place, the gunships Rex had called in arrived, allowing two Mandalorians to capture him with their wrist-cables. As he was arrested, Maul wailed in terror of what was to come, claiming that “all would burn and die”, with his cries ending once Rex blasted him with a stun blast.
Afterwards, Maul was captured by the Republic and placed in a Mandalorian vault also known as a Mandalorian sarcophagus.
