The Third Blackfyre Rebellion was a conflict late in the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen.

The Rebellion

In 219 AC, Ser Aegor Rivers, known as Bittersteel, launched a new invasion after crowning Haegon I Blackfyre, the fourthborn son of Daemon I Blackfyre. This new invasion took place late in the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen, who was not interested in the details of ruling. The king's younger brother, Prince Maekar Targaryen, on the other hand, showed his leadership during the conflict. His son, Prince Aerion, fought in the war as well, as did young Prince Aegon, showing his courage.

The Third Blackfyre Rebellion featured the second duel between Bittersteel and his half-brother Brynden Rivers, who was called Bloodraven. At the end of the final battle, the Pretender, Haegon I, was dishonorably killed after he had surrendered and had given up his sword.[1]

Aftermath

Bittersteel was taken captive and brought in chains to the Red Keep in King's Landing, where Aerion and Bloodraven urged Aerys I to have Aegor executed. While Bittersteel was found guilty of high treason, the king spared his life and ordered that Bittersteel be sent to the Wall instead of facing execution.[1]

The rebels learned of Bittersteel's fate, as there were still many Blackfyre friends at court who were willing to inform Aegor's supporters. The ship carrying Aegor to the Night's Watch was taken in the narrow sea, while on the way to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, and Bittersteel was freed and returned to the sellsword company he had founded, the Golden Company. Bittersteel returned to Tyrosh, and before the year had ended, he crowned Haegon's eldest son, Daemon. Thus the Blackfyre plotting continued.[1]

Notes

  1. House Yronwood fought on the side of House Blackfyre for three of the five Blackfyre Rebellions (A Feast for Crows, Chapter 13, The Soiled Knight). They are known not to have fought in the Second or Fifth Rebellion, leaving the first, third, and fourth.
