Wickenden is the seat of House Waxley in the Vale of Arryn. The town[1] is located on the northern shore of the Bay of Crabs, northwest of Crackclaw Point.[2] It is famous for making scented beeswax candles.[3]

History

King Jaehaerys I Targaryen planned to visit Wickenden in 51 AC during his first royal progress. After Queen Alysanne Targaryen was attacked as Jonquil's Pool in Maidenpool, however, the king postponed his visit to the Vale of Arryn and instead returned to Maegor's Holdfast.[4]
