The blacks carried the personal sigil of Rhaenyra Targaryen: the normal Targaryen red dragon sigil, quartered with the moon-and-falcon sigil of House Arryn (for her mother Aemma Arryn), and the silver seahorse on sea green of House Velaryon (for her first husband Laenor Velaryon, as well as for the Velaryons in general, who were among her major supporters).

The blacks, previously known as the party of the princess, were the faction of House Targaryen and their loyalists who supported the ascent of Rhaenyra Targaryen as Queen of the Seven Kingdoms during the Dance of the Dragons and the years that preceded it.[1] They were opposed by the greens.[2]

History

The title derives from a great tournament held in 111 AC at King's Landing on the fifth anniversary of King Viserys I's marriage to Queen Alicent Hightower, his second wife.[2]

At the opening feast, Queen Alicent wore a green gown, whilst Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Viserys's daughter by his first wife, dressed dramatically in Targaryen red and black. Note was taken, and thereafter it became the custom to refer to “greens” and “blacks” when talking of the queen’s party and the party of the princess.[2]
