After returning to King's Landing following his victory at the Battle at the Great Fork, King Maegor I Targaryen declared his intent to take Tyanna of the Tower as his third wife. Myros dared to speak against the marriage openly, stating that Maegor's true wife, Ceryse Hightower, awaited at Oldtown. Maegor heard him out in silence before drawing Blackfyre and killing Myros where he stood.[2]
