Year 282 After the Conquest (282 AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 282nd after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.

282 AC saw the beginning of an uprising against House Targaryen, originating with the disappearance of Lyanna Stark, which was attributed to Prince Rhaegar as him having kidnapped her. This sparked a reaction from Lyanna's eldest brother, Brandon Stark, who road to the gated of the Red Keep in King's Landing and threathened Prince Rhaegar's life. Though Rhaegar himself was not present, King Aerys II Targaryen was, and he ordered Brandon's arrest. Brandon's father Rickard was summoned to King's Landing as well, and in the trial that followed, both Brandon and Rickard were killed. King Aerys was not yet statisfied, however, and ordered Jon Arryn to send him the heads of Robert Baratheon and Eddard Stark, his two wards. Jon Arryn refused, and raised his banners instead. Thus began a war that would later be known under the names Robert's Rebellion, the War of the Usurper, or simply the rebellion. The war lasted all through the year, and most of the next year, and saw some major battles.
