The burning of Sow’s Horn is an attempted burning of Sow's Horn that takes place in 299 AC during the War of the Five Kings.

Prelude

Following Westermen defeats at the Whispering Woods and the Camps, Lord Tywin Lannister orders Ser Amory Lorch to burn territory in the Riverlands from the Green Fork down to the God’s Eye.

Battle

Westermen led by Ser Amory Lorch attempt to burn Sow’s Horn despite the town being within the Crownlands, rather than the Riverlands, and House Hogg of Sow’s Horn being sworn directly to the Iron Throne. The burning fails as a result of Sow’s Horn thick stone walls, and Amory retreats Northwards back into the Riverlands, but not before slaughtering half of Ser Roger Hogg's sheep and several goats.

Aftermath

Ser Jaime Lannister passes through Sow's Horn on his way to Riverrun. Roger Hogg is angry that Amory Lorch attempted to burn Sow's Horn despite House Hogg and Lannister both being sworn to Joffrey I Baratheon.
