Submission of Stokeworth
|Submission of Stokeworth
House Stokeworth bends the knee to Aegon
The submission of Stokeworth ocurred quite early in Aegon's Conquest, shortly after the landing of the Conqueror. Following the construction of the Aegonfort, Aegon I dispatched his wives Rhaenys and Visenya to secure the submission of nearby castles.
While Rosby, the seat of House Rosby, yielded to Rhaenys and Meraxes without a fight, a few crossbowmen shot arrows at her and Vhagar at Stokeworth. As a result, the dragon set the roofs of the castle keep ablaze, which led to House Stokeworth to quickly submit.
