Year 42 After the Conquest (42 AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 42nd after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.

During year 42 AC the Realm was in turmoil, caused by the rise of the Faith Militant. When he received news that princes Aegon and Rhaena were being besieged at Crakehall, king Aegon fell sick, and died a few days later. Visenya hurriedly crowned his son Maegor, and silenced the ones arguing that young Prince Aegon was the rightful heir. Maegor survived a trial of seven against the Warrior's Sons, burnt the Sept of Remembrance, and defeated armies of the Faith in Bitterbridge.
