The fall of Rosby took place at Rosby in the crownlands during the Dance of the Dragons.

Prelude

Following the fall of Harrenhal to Prince Daemon Targaryen and the two defeats at the Burning Mill and Stone Hedge, King Aegon II Targaryen stripped Ser Otto Hightower of his title of Hand of the King and granted it to Ser Criston Cole, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. Criston advised moving against the "traitors" that had bent the knee to Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. As House Velaryon and House Celtigar were unreachable, he marched on the "black" lords on the mainland.[1][2]

Battle

Rosby fell to Aegon's forces under the command of Ser Criston Cole.[2]

Aftermath

After Rosby, Stokeworth, and Duskendale had fallen, Ser Criston Cole marched on Rook's Rest, the seat of House Staunton, where he met with resistance.[1][2]
