The invasion of Tarth occurs amidst the Landing of the Golden Company.

Prelude

In his campaign to place Aegon Targaryen on the Iron Throne, Jon Connington joins the sellsword Golden Company in invading the stormlands. Their Volantene fleet is scattered by a storm after Lys, and only six of the sellswords' ten ships arrive at the rendezvous near the rainwood in Cape Wrath, land formerly owned by House Connington. The gathered force is not quite half the Golden Company's full strength of ten thousand.[2] The small council receive words that Tarth and other islands in the narrow sea are being invaded by sellswords.[3][4]

Battle

Smallfolk claim that Tarth has fallen to the Golden Company.[1]
