Year 59 After the Conquest (59 AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 59th after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.

59 AC was the first of a two-year exceptionally cold and cruel winter. The crops failed in the North, the riverlands, the westerlands, the Vale and even down into the Reach. The price of bread and meat rose, and there was famine. But the most terrible adversity was the widespread of the winter plague known as the Shivers, that caused the deaths of thousands of people throughout Westeros incluiding two Lords Paramount, two members of the small council, and two members of the Kingsguard.[1]
