The greens carried the personal sigil of Aegon II Targaryen: a golden dragon

The greens were the faction of House Targaryen and their loyalists who supported the ascent of Aegon II as King of the Seven Kingdoms during the Dance of the Dragons. They were opposed by the blacks.


The title derives from a great tournament held in 111 AC at King's Landing on the fifth anniversary of the King Viserys I’s marriage to Queen Alicent Hightower, his second wife.

At the opening feast, Queen Alicent wore a green gown, whilst Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Viserys’s daughter by his first wife, dressed dramatically in Targaryen red and black. Note was taken, and thereafter it became the custom to refer to “greens” and “blacks” when talking of the queen’s party and the party of the princess.[1]
