History

After the death of King Maekar I Targaryen in 233 AC, there was no definitive heir to ascend the throne, so the Hand of the King, Lord Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers, called a Great Council. Aenys put forth his claim to the Iron Throne by writing from exile. Lord Brynden offered him safe conduct to King's Landing, so Aenys could present his claim in person. Aenys accepted this proposal, an unwise decision. As soon as he entered King's Landing, he was seized by the gold cloaks and dragged to the Red Keep, where he was executed. His head was presented to the lords of the Great Council, as a warning to any who might still have Blackfyre sympathies.[1]

After King Aegon V Targaryen was crowned king, he had Bloodraven arrested for the murder of Aenys, as Brynden had broken the word of the Iron Throne with the act. Rivers was sentenced to death but later sent to the Wall instead, to live out the remainder of his life as a Brother of the Night's Watch.[2]
