History

Maester Yandel states the Carons have held Nightsong for many centuries and the castle guarded the western border of the domain of the Storm Kings of House Durrandon, but also that the Kingdom of the Reach once included western marches from Horn Hill to Nightsong.[4][5] Records indicate the castle has been besieged at least thirty-seven times in the last millenium.[6]

Nightsong was burned by Lord Fowler in 10 AC during the First Dornish War.[7]

The Vulture King led one of his hosts of Dornishmen to attack Nightsong and Horn Hill. He failed to capture Nightsong, however, and while marching west was defeated by Lady Ellyn Caron, Lord Harmon Dondarrion, and Lord Samwell Tarly during the Vulture Hunt.[8]
