The new Hand of the King Criston Cole, the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard devised a more aggressive strategy than his predecessor. His forces sacked Duskendale and set a trap at Rook's Rest.

Cole's forces fought against Rhaenys Targaryen| and her dragon, Meleys, until Aegon's dragons arrived. Rhaenys and her Meleys were slain. Aegon was severely wounded and Prince Aemond took over as regent while he recovered for the year.
