History

During the Dance of the Dragons, violent riots occured in the capital, Ser Torrhen Manderly led a sortie from the Red Keep down the Hook with his northmen to try to stop the rioteers. When they arrived to the Fishmonger's Square and the River Row, the place was swarming with Ser Perkin the Flea’s gutter knights. Ser Torrhen lost a quarter of his men fighting his way back to the Red Keep.[3][4]
