Year 298 After the Conquest (298 AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 298th after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.

298AC saw the death of Jon Arryn, who had been Hand of the King for fifteen years. King Robert entrusted the post to his childhood friend Eddard Stark, and engaged his heir Joffrey to Eddard's eldest daughter Sansa. But after Robert died in a hunting accident, Eddard denounced that Queen Cersei's children were actually bastards and could not inherit the throne. Eddard was arrested and beheaded for treason, and Joffrey was crowned. Several nobles opposed the new king in open revolt, setting the stage of the conflict that would be known as the War of the Five Kings.

Nearly all chapters from A Game of Thrones take place during 298 AC.
