Canon Claude Posted December 7, 2021 Share Posted December 7, 2021 I get that we don’t know much about it, but what little info we have makes the event feel really weird to me. House Peake seem to be a marcher lord house. They had three castles after driving out the Manderlys. They’re ancient and numerous and used to be influential, but never very wealthy. Then the Targaryens marginalized them by eliminating the Gardeners. Then we had Unwin Peake making an enemy of Aegon III, we had Gormon Peake participating in two Blackfyre rebellions. For one or both of those things, the Peakes lost two of their three castles. And even after all that, the Peakes still decided to rebel? How? They’re down to just one castle, and presumably they’ve never been weaker in terms of manpower. What made them think rebelling would work? I have to assume they must have had a significant faction of other houses with them, though, because the king himself and his family are actively working to bring down this rebellion. You’d think that of all regions, the Reach would have enough troops to suppress House Peake at Starpike. Which means House Peake must have had help from some significant houses, but then why is it only called “The Peake Uprising?” And how strong is Starpike that the king himself has to bring an alliance of troops to take it?
