The battle at Stonebridge was one of the many battles against the Faith Militant during the Faith Militant uprising.

History

According to semi-canon sources, the Poor Fellows were nine thousand strong, and led by Wat the Hewer.[1] While crossing the Mander, they were caught between six lordly armies.[1] The Poor Fellows fell and died in droves during the conflict. The sheer brutality of the carnage made the Mander run red with blood for twenty leagues, resulting in the bridge and castle that commanded it forever after being known as Bitterbridge.[2] Wat managed to kill Lord Meadows, the commander of the King's army, but was taken alive himself, and delivered to King's Landing in chains.[1]
