History

During the Greyjoy Rebellion, Lordsport and its timber and wattle keep were the first places on Pyke to fall when King Robert Baratheon and his forces landed on the island.[3] The keep and the village were razed and the sept was burned to the ground.[1]

After the war, Lord Sawane Botley rebuilt his stronghold as a small square keep atop a hill; the banners of House Botley droop from the castle's squat corner towers.[1]

Lordsport was rebuilt by its smallfolk, who used the stones from the burned remnants and cut new thatch for their roofs. The inn that sits next to the harbor doubled in size, with a lower floor made of stone and its upper two stories made of wood. The sept was not rebuilt, however, as the ironmen prefer the Drowned God over the Faith of the Seven, the religion of the victorious Robert.[1]
