Background

After Victarion and Euron Greyjoy burned the Lannister fleet at anchor at Lannisport, King Robert I brought the fleets commanded by Lords Stannis Baratheon and Paxter Redwyne up to deal with the longship threat of the Iron Islands. Stannis's fleet was sent to deal with the Iron Fleet.

Battle

Stannis caught Victarion in a trap and smashed his fleet off Fair Isle.[1]

Aftermath

With the threat of the Iron Fleet diminished, King Robert I was able to land in the Iron Islands and put down the Greyjoy Rebellion. Aeron Greyjoy, the younger brother of Victarion and Euron, was captured after his ship was sunk by the Fury.[1]
