Aegon's Landing, in 2 BC, was the event in which Aegon Targaryen, Lord of Dragonstone, arrived at the mouth of the Blackwater Rush on the mainland of Westeros with the intention of conquering the continent. Aegon landed in Westeros on the same day that Harren the Black took residence in the finally-completed Harrenhal.[1]

Aegon's Conquest, the first of the Wars of Conquest, lasted for more than two years and ended with Aegon I anointed king by the High Septon in Oldtown.[2] Six of the Seven Kingdoms were consolidated under his rule, with only Dorne remaining independent.
