A Clash of Kings

Excited by Robb Stark's success during the War of the Five Kings, Benfred surrounds himself with a company of lances called the Wild Hares.[1]

Benfred and his company ride out to the Stony Shore to see if the rumors of ironborn raiding are true. They do not expect that the enemy will have many men and do not send scouts ahead. Theon Greyjoy and his ironmen easily surprise and defeat the Wild Hares. The wounded Benfred refuses to answer any questions, calls Theon a traitor and spits on him. For this Aeron Greyjoy has him drowned.[2]
