Year 297 After the Conquest (297 AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 297th after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.
297 AC was a quiet year, but is marked by the first recorded activity of the Others in Westeros. This was further marked by rangers from the Night's Watch disappearing more and more. Further, 297 AC saw the fortunes of Viserys Targaryen and his sister Daenerys going up, as magister Illyrio Mopatis took them in his care.
