Fall of Stokeworth
|Fall of Stokeworth|
|Conflict||Dance of the Dragons|
|Result||Victory for the greens|
Following the fall of Harrenhal to Prince Daemon Targaryen and the two defeats at the Burning Mill and Stone Hedge, King Aegon II Targaryen stripped Ser Otto Hightower of his title of Hand of the King and granted it to Ser Criston Cole, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. Criston advised moving against the "traitors" that had bent the knee to Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. As House Velaryon and House Celtigar were unreachable, he marched on the "black" lords on the mainland.
