Rhaenys_Targaryen Posted October 26, 2014 Share Posted October 26, 2014 Do we know why/how Greyjoys got to power? Did they support Aegon? Were they controlling the Iron Islands (then just small part of Ironborn realm) during the reign of Hoare? During the War of Conquest, the Iron Islands and the Riverlands were ruled by Harren the Black. Because House Tully was the first of the Riverlords to support Aegon, Tully was granted the Riverlands, but the Iron Islands were not granted to him. Instead, the surviving lords on the Iron Islands were allowed to revive their ancient custom of chosing who should have the primacy among them. Lord Vickon Greyjoy was chosen. There were members of House Greyjoy who had once ruled as kings, though it at some point, they were conquered. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
