Largely in retaliation for Waikato Maori helping Taranaki Maori protect their land in the earlier Taranaki War, the colonial government - with the help of troops brought from Britain - pushed south from the main settlement of Auckland, fighting several defensive lines organised by the combined iwi of the King Movement.
During 1863 and 1864 fighting occurred at Meremere, Ngaruawahia, Rangiaowhia (southwest of Cambridge) and at Orakau (near Te Awamutu).
Eventually the King Movement's forces pulled back to positions in the area to the south of the Waikato, still known as the King Country.
