Year 196 After the Conquest (196 AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 196th after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.

196 AC saw the First Blackfyre Rebellion, where the bastard son of Princess Daena Targaryen and the late King Aegon IV Targaryen, Daemon Blackfyre, claimed the throne for himself. Daemon had many followers, and his rebellious act sparked a response from his half-brother, King Daeron II Targaryen. The First Blackfyre Rebellion ended on the Redgrass Field, with the death of Daemon and his two eldest sons.
