With the death of Mystra and the destruction of the Dweomerheart, Azuth (a patron diety of mages) was thrown into the Nine Hells, the fiery domain of Asmodeus. The archdevil killed Azuth and consumed his divine essence. Asmodeus was thus lifted into Godhood as a Greater God of Evil. For reasons yet unknown, in anticipation of the weakening of the Divine realms on the Prime Material Plane, a Compact was formed between the Diving and the Infernal limiting the number of Angels and Devils on the Prime.
The Compact: compact.
