History

After the death of King Daeron I Targaryen in Dorne under a peace banner, Prince Aemon the Dragonknight was imprisoned by Lord Wyl in a cage. King Baelor I Targaryen tried to obtain Aemon's release during his journey to Sunspear, but Lord Wyl refused. After negotiating peace with the Prince of Dorne, Baelor found that Aemon's cage was now suspended over vipers. Lord Wyl obeyed the king's command to release the Dragonknight from captivity, but gave the key to Baelor instead of having his men open the cage. The Wyls are said to have wagered upon the Targaryens' chances during their successful escape from the pit of venomous snakes.[1]
