    Following the death of Aegon I Targaryen and the coronation of Aenys I Targaryen, Jonos Arryn rebelled against the Iron Throne.


    The Vale of Arryn submitted to the Targaryens during Aegon's Conquest, thus losing their title of King of Mountain and Vale. The Targaryens allowed the boy king Ronnel Arryn to remain the ruler of the region henceforth as Lord of the Eyrie and Warden of the East.[1]


    Upon the death of Aegon the Conqueror, people all over Westeros sensed weakness in the new king, Aenys I Targaryen. One of those people was Ronnel's younger brother, Jonos Arryn. With the aid of the Eyrie garrison, Jonos deposed and imprisoned Ronnel in the sky cells and declared himself King of Mountain and Vale. Aenys was hesitant on how to deal with this independence movement. Lord Allard Royce and twoscore of Vale bannermen loyal to Ronnel began to lay siege to the Eyrie and demanded that Jonos released Ronnel from his cell. In response, Jonos flung him through the Moon Door, earning himself the nickname of Jonos the Kinslayer.[2]

    The situation remained a stalemate until the arrival of Prince Maegor Targaryen atop Balerion. At the sight of the dragon, the garrison betrayed Jonos and sent him to Allard through the Moon Door and surrendered the castle. Maegor was not merciful towards the repentant garrison and ordered they all be hung.[2]


    Hubert Arryn, a cousin of Ronnel and Jonos, was installed as the new Lord of the Eyrie and Warden of the East. Lord Allard approved of this choice as Hubert had married a Royce of Runestone and had already six sons by her. For his efforts to put down the rebellion, Lord Allard was rewarded with gold, titles, and honors by King Aenys.[2]
