The Battle of Riverrun is the second major battle of the conflict known as the War of the Five Kings.

Prelude

After Ser Jaime Lannister defeats a small Tully force at the Battle of the Golden Tooth, Jaime and Lord Tywin Lannister invade the riverlands. Jaime marches directly on Riverrun, where Ser Edmure Tully has assembled many of his father Hoster Tully's bannermen and knights. Edmure's force is diminished on account of the men he has sent to guard the borders and the Golden Tooth in response to Lannister raiding. The forces of Lord Walder Frey are also not present.

Battle

Jaime meets the Tullys under the walls of Riverrun. Securing a victory, Jaime puts the river lords to rout. Edmure and many of his knights and bannermen are taken captive. Lord Tytos Blackwood manages to lead some of the surviving men back within Riverrun, where Jaime places them under siege.[1]

Aftermath

In the meantime Tywin leads a second, larger Lannister army against the companies of men Edmure had dispersed along his borders to guard against Ser Gregor Clegane's raiding. Tywin and Ser Kevan Lannister are able to destroy them piecemeal before they can regroup. They then seize many prominent castles in the southern riverlands, most notably Harrenhal, which is yielded without a fight. They then assume a position at the ruby ford, where they can both block any Stark or Arryn attempt to relieve Riverrun and maintain contact with King's Landing.
