Ambush on the Wendwater
From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
|Ambush on the Wendwater|
An ambush on the Wendwater occurred during Aegon's Conquest when stormlords attacked the host of House Targaryen.
Shortly after the coronation of Aegon I Targaryen, the Conqueror dispatched the greater part of his host south to Storm's End under the leadership of Orys Baratheon, accompanied by Queen Rhaenys Targaryen atop Meraxes.
While crossing the Wendwater, the Targaryen host was ambushed by Lords Errol, Fell, and Buckler, cutting down more than a thousand men before fading back into the trees of the kingswood. In response, Rhaenys unleashed the dragonflame of Meraxes to torch the forest.
