Year 289 After the Conquest (289 AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 289th after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.

289 AC was marked by the Greyjoy Rebellion, where Lord Balon Greyjoy wrongly believed that the lords of the Seven Kingdoms were not as loyal to King Robert Baratheon as they had to the previous Targaryen monarchs. Balon thus proclaimed independence for the Iron Islands and crowned himself King. King Robert Baratheon, with the help of, amongst others, his friend Lord Eddard Stark, defeated Balon, crushing the short-lived rebellion effectively.
