The Defenestration of Sunspear was an event in the First Dornish War. Soon after the Targaryens returned to King's Landing, the Dornish swarmed from the shadow city to retake Sunspear. Lord Jon Rosby, who had been named Castellan of Sunspear and Warden of the Sands, was bound hand and foot, dragged to the top of the Spear Tower and defenestrated from a window by none other than the blind Princess Meria Martell herself.[1][2]
