The marriage of Lord [[Ambrose Butterwell]] to the daughter of Lord [[House Frey|Frey]] was a ruse for those who sided with the [[House Blackfyre]] during the [[Blackfyre Rebellion]] to come together along with those who resented the rule of [[Brynden Rivers|Bloodraven]] and join their forces. Most of those who had fought for the Black Dragon in the original rebellion had their children taken as hostages, but most of them had died during [[The Great Spring Sickness]] and allowed them to plot once more.

The Second Blackfyre Rebellion was the second attempt of the Blackfyre Pretenders to claim the Iron Throne. The failed plot which took place in 212 AC[1][2] began at Whitewalls, where the hedge knight known as Ser John the Fiddler was revealed to be Daemon II Blackfyre during a wedding tourney.[3][1]

The Tourney

The marriage of Lord Ambrose Butterwell to a daughter of Lord Frey was used by some of those who had sided with House Blackfyre during the First Blackfyre Rebellion to come together along with those who resented the rule of Hand of the King, Brynden Rivers, and join their forces. Most of those who had fought for the Black Dragon in the original rebellion had their children taken as hostages, but most of those hostages had died during the Great Spring Sickness, which allowed their families to plot once more.[3]

The organizers of the tourney, mainly Ser Tommard Heddle and Lord Gormon Peake, convinced Lord Butterwell to name his dragon egg as the prize for the winner of the tourney. They attempted to rig the tourney so that Daemon Blackfyre would win. The plot was foiled by the intervention of Ser Duncan the Tall and the prowess of Ser Glendon Flowers in tourney. The dragon egg had been stolen and Ser Glendon was framed for the deed, due to his refusal to lose from Daemon in the lists. The missing egg was even found to be in his possessions. He was arrested and thrown in a cell. However, Duncan slew Tommard in single combat and revealed the egg that had been 'found' in Glendon's saddlebags was a painted stone. The real dragon egg was still missing. Daemon had been unaware of the plots, and was unsure who to believe. He ordered a trial by joust, during which Glendon unhorsed Daemon on the first pass.[3]

News spread throughout the castle that Lord Brynden Rivers was marching on the castle with three of the Kingsguard, his three hundred Raven's Teeth, and five hundred knights and five thousand infantry from the crownlands and riverlands. These were drawn from Houses Darklyn, Hayford, Massey, Rosby, Stokeworth, Mooton, Lothston, and House Blackwood, the house of Brynden's mother, Melissa.[3]

Daemon called for those within the castle to fight to the death but was laughed off by the fighting men. Daemon then marched out and offered single combat, but was promptly taken prisoner by Lord Rivers, thus ending the Second Rebellion before it actually began.[3]

Aftermath

Lord Ambrose Butterwell kept only a tenth of his fortune and the castle Whitewalls was forfeit to the Iron Throne. The castle would be razed to the ground. Ser Tommard Heddle died at the hands of Ser Duncan the Tall and Lord Gormon Peake was executed for his part in the rebellion. Others were executed for their parts as well. Daemon was kept as a prisoner to prevent Bittersteel (who had refused to give Daemon the sword Blackfyre, nor had taken part in the rebellion) from crowning Daemon's younger brother, Haegon.[3]

Quotes
