What if Victarion defeated Stannis

Recommended Posts

during the greyjoy rebellion? also he manages to kill stannis in single combat during the battle.

if so, what happens now with the royalist fleet destroyed?

With the Lannister fleet burned and the Royal & Redwyne fleets defeated (and split in half with the Iron Fleet in between them) the ironborn would control the seas and be allowed to reave wherever they wanted. Robert would need to salvage the defeated fleets, call up whatever ships Dorne and the Vale might have, start building a new fleet, or some combination of those things, before he could hope to challenge the Iron Fleet again (and this time Victarion won't sail into a trap). 

If he manages to do that and the new fleet defeats Victarion, history probably proceeds as normal. If not, I can't see him building a third, and the ironborn would likely control the seas for the foreseeable future.

Victarion gains the distinction of best commander in Westeros probably, at least at sea. 

Robert would be enraged at the escalating defiance and death of his brother, go all-in on crushing the Greyjoy rebellion and extinguishes the Greyjoy line. Giving control to the Goodbrothers or Harlaws.

the redwine fleet would take them at the reach so the story could go on as written

That was the royal fleet. 

AND..........the redwynes.

“ Swift to respond, the young king called his banners and sent his brother Stannis, Lord of Dragonstone, around Dorne with the royal fleet. Warships from Oldtown and the Arbor and the Reach joined their strength to his. Balon Greyjoy sent his own brother Victarion to meet them, but in the Straits of Fair Isle, Lord Stannis lured the ironborn into a trap and smashed the Iron Fleet.”

Don't believe me though!

I doubt they sent every ship they had. They would buy and build more at speed, likely contracting out to Braavos for ear galleys and hiring fleets. The ironborn had no good in the long term
