|Result||partial destruction of town|
The First sack of Maidenpool is part of the first Lannister invasion of the riverlands during the War of the Five Kings.
Many of the riverlords return to their lands after the battle under the walls of Riverrun. The Lannister army, led by Lord Tywin Lannister and Ser Kevan Lannister, marches on each stronghold in turn. At some point, the town of Maidenpool is sacked by "lions", westermen soldiers sworn to the Lannisters. Lord William Mooton remains in his castle and does not defend the town.
Maidenpool is later sacked by northmen.
