Siege of Meereen, Daenerys Targaryen marched on Meereen, the last and the biggest of the greatest slaver cities of Slaver's Bay.

Prelude

The Meereenese, Warned by the fate of Astapor and Yunkai, did not allow for contacts being made with Daenerys, they striped the land before Daenerys arrival and retreated behind the formidable defense of Meereen. Daenerys followed by twenty thousand soldiers and sixty thousands refugees from Astapor and Yunkai, was starved of supplies and couldn't afford a prolonged siege.[1]

Daenerys dismantled her fleet to build siege weapons.


A champion, Oznak zo Pahl, emerged to challenge the invaders, and was slain by Daenerys's eunuch bodyguard Strong Belwas, a former gladiator in Meereen.


To avoid an extended campaign, Ser Jorah, Barristan Selmy and Strong Belwas led a small force, infiltrated the city through the sewers. They released the gladiator slaves of the fighting pits and used the ensuing chaos to open the city's gates.

Aftermath

In contrast to her previous Ghiscari occupations, Daenerys lingered at Meereen and ruled it as queen. This was because at this time, she received word that her ruling council in Astapor had been overthrown by a dictatorial butcher resulting in much suffering. Not wanting to let this happen to Meereen, she decided to stay.[2]
