The raiding along the westerlands coast takes place in 299 AC during the War of the Five Kings.

Prelude

In order to defeat a host being trained by Ser Stafford Lannister, Robb Stark leaves Riverrun and marches for the westerlands. Bypassing the Golden Tooth, the new King in the North smashes the new westermen host at Oxcross. Following his victory Robb divides his force to launch further attacks upon the westerlands.[2][3][1]

Raiding

Whilst Lady Maege Mormont captures thousands of cattle and leads it back to Riverrun and Lord Greatjon Umber captures the gold mines of Castamere, Nunn's Deep, and the Pendric Hills, the Lords Rickard Karstark and Robett Glover raid along the coastline of the Sunset Sea.[1][4]

Aftermath

Returning to Riverrun after the storming of the Crag, Robb tells Ser Edmure Tully he remained in the westerlands after Oxcross in hopes of drawing Lord Tywin Lannister back to his homeland.[5]

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Although no westermen houses are mentioned during the raiding of the westerland coast, it can be assumed to have been Banefort, Kenning of Kayce, and Westerling, as these are the only three houses in the northern westerlands, where the northmen were raiding, with a coastline.
