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. The aerial duel between the two dragons of the greens and the one dragon of the blacks saw the death of Rhaenys and her dragon.

Aftermath

The loss of both Rhaenys Targaryen| and her dragon, Meleys was a severe blow to the blacks. Rhaenys husband, Corlys "The Sea Snake"Velaryon was enraged and blamed her death on Queen Rhaenyra stating if they she had sent her sons with their dragons. His wife might be alive.

Aegon II suffered from severe burns and was incapacitated for a year, his dragon Sunfyre was rendered flightless from the dual with Meleys. Prince Aemond became regent while his brother recovered. [1]
