The Peake Uprising was a rebellion by House Peake against House Targaryen in 233 AC. It is notable for the death in battle of King Maekar I Targaryen.[1]

History

House Peake were loyal supporters of House Blackfyre, but they lost Dunstonbury and Whitegrove in the aftermath of the First Blackfyre Rebellion and Lord Gormon Peake was executed in the Second Blackfyre Rebellion.[2] The Peakes rose against the Iron Throne during the reign of King Maekar I Targaryen, leading the king to suppress the rebellion in the Dornish Marches himself.[3]

Maekar, Robert Reyne of Castamere, and Tywald Lannister, the young heir of Casterly Rock, died during the conclusive battle, the Storming of Starpike.[1][4]

Aftermath

Roger Reyne, the new Lord of Castamere, slaughtered seven Peakes after Starpike, while Maekar's death led to to political chaos.[4] His fourth son was eventually crowned Aegon V Targaryen after a Great Council.
