The Wailing Willows was a battle fought on the southern shore of the Gods Eye during Aegon's Conquest. Aegon the Conqueror was victorious in the Battle of the Reeds. Two sons of King Harren Hoare retaliated by crossing the Gods Eye with muffled oars in their longships, and they inflicted heavy casualties on the Targaryens. Harren's sons were killed by Aegon's dragon, Balerion, as they were returning across the lake, however.[1]
