The burning of Pinkmaiden Castle is part of the Lannister invasion of the riverlands during the War of the Five Kings.


With the rivermen defeated in the battle under the walls of Riverrun, Ser Gregor Clegane and his men burn Pinkmaiden Castle and the Piper lands under orders from Lord Tywin Lannister.[2]


Following the Battle of the Camps, Ser Marq Piper leaves Riverrun to defend his family's lands.[3]
