History of the Haruno Clan (Betrayal)
The Haruno Clan was created in the Land of Moon. They were protectors of the village's king and the village itself earning the moniker "Guardians of the Moon Kingdom". Until one day Yushiro Haruno betrayed the clan telling the king that the clan was planning a coup and were planning on taking the Land of Moon away from him.
Fall and Rise of the Haruno
The King sent out an army to the Haruno clan compound and had tend to kill the whole clan. Despite this, some of the members fought back and almost half of them were killed. It was later revealed that Yushiro lied to the king and killed the king later on before he vanished but was soon caught by his family. After the death of King Hamura, Tsukigakure (Village Hidden in the Moon) was left crippled and Yushiro was then sentenced to be forbidden from the family under the hands of his father Kizashi for the betrayal of the Haruno Clan. Despite this after learning the truth about what happened to the village's king, the people of Tsukigakure then soon blamed the entire clan for the king's death and was banished from the Land of Moon. When the rest of the clan resided in Konohagakure the Hokage was going to banish the clan into thinking that they actually 'killed' the king in the Land of Moon, after hearing the truth from Kizashi and Mebuki about what really happened on the Land of Moon, the Hokage then assigned them as an official clan of Konohagakure.
Throughout the whole village, the Harunos' soon gained popularity after the villagers heard about the artificial legacy of the Haruno Clan. Because of this, the clan then began to develop new members and soon half of the Haruno Clan was finally restored.
Aona Cho is a distant descendant from a direct member of this clan.
