Roberts Rebellion.jpg

Robert's Rebellion, also known as the War of the Usurper, was a rebellion against House Targaryen, instigated by the disappearance of Lyanna Stark. Her brother Brandon heard that she had been kidnapped by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, and went to King's Landing to demand her return. He was arrested, and executed along with his father and their traveling companions on the orders of King Aerys II. Aerys then commanded Jon Arryn to send him the heads of his two wards, Robert Baratheon, Lyanna's betrothed, and Eddard Stark, Brandon's younger brother, and now the Lord of Winterfell. Jon Arryn refused, and raised his banners instead.

This lead to a war which lasted close to a year. The result was the end of the Targaryen Dynasty, and the beginning of Robert Baratheons reign. The war included several major battles, amongst which the Battle of the Bells, the Battle of the Trident, and the Sack of King's Landing. Read more....
