The Sack of Tyrosh ocurred prior to the War of the Ninepenny Kings.


The Band of Nine was a group of merchants, mercenaries and pirates from the Free Cities who banded together to carve out kingdoms for themselves. They began their conquests by overrunning the Disputed Lands.[1]

Sack of Tyrosh

After taking over the Disputed Lands, the Band of Nine turn to the Free City of Tyrosh. The city was sacked and the ruling Archon of Tyrosh was deposed. The merchant Alequo Adarys was then installed as the new ruler of the city, becoming known as the "Tyrant of Tyrosh".[1]


Afterwards, the Band of Nine conquered the Stepstones, poised to invade the Seven Kingdoms on behalf of Maelys I Blackfyre. However, the Iron Throne launched a preemptive attack on the Band of Nine, which became known as the War of the Ninepenny Kings. The Band of Nine was defeated, but Adarys remained as the ruler of Tyrosh until he was poisoned by his queen in 266 AC.[1]
