The siege of Darry is a short siege during the War of the Five Kings.


Castle Darry is recaptured from the Lannister occupation by the forces of House Darry. However, a fortnight later, Ser Gregor Clegane falls upon the castle and puts it to the sword, killing the eight-year-old Lord Lyman Darry and extinguishing House Darry in the male line.[2][3]


Ser Helman Tallhart leads Tallhart men in a brief siege of Castle Darry that results in the surrender of the Lannister garrison.[4]


Darry is once again free of Lannister occupation. At Harrenhal, Lord Roose Bolton sends word to Ser Helman to put the castle to the torch and the Lannister captives to the sword in the name of King Robb Stark. Helman is to then join forces with Robett Glover and attack Duskendale.[4]

Following the Battle of the Blackwater, the Iron Throne grants Darry to Ser Lancel Lannister.[3] At the end of the War of the Five Kings, the Lannisters claim the Darry lands and marry Lancel to Amerei Frey, the daughter of Mariya Darry.
