What happens if the battle field is empty when the battle starts? Who will get the battle card?

Situation: Round 3, "Battle of Wakefield" with 1 red cube. No one plays cards to add cubes to the battle field. As the last card of the round Lancaster plays "Warwick the Kingmaker" adding cubes to regions. Now York gets the secondary event and removes the one and only red cube from the battle field.

Hmmmm...nice one.

I'd say that no-one wins and the Battle is discarded; this means, in theory, you could end the 5 rounds with a 2:2 tie on battles if there was no 'three region' winner!

We need David to chip in, TBH.

I thought that in the case with no cubes during battle resolution that whomever played the card wins the battle. But I could be wrong...

That's how we played it. At least this requires only a little clarification in the rules and also always keeps the game decided.

Already asked and answered, even in a thread with an explicit clear subject: whistle
What if both players have no cubes on the battlefield at the start of battle?
