An ambush at the Wendwater occurred during the Faith Militant uprising.

History

Late in 45 AC, scores of Poor Fellows were hunted down in the kingswood by the forces of King Maegor I Targaryen. Poxy Jeyne Poore, a woman considered a witch by Maegor's three septons, was eventually betrayed to the king by three of her Poor Fellow followers. Maegor ordered that Jeyne be burned alive in a field near the Wendwater.[1]

Ambush

Ser Horys Hill led three hundred Poor Fellows and peasants in an attempt to rescue Jeyne. Maegor was prepared for this eventuality, however, and the king's men slaughtered Horys and his men. Meagor eventually returned to the Red Keep in 46 AC.[1]
