A Recap of the Events of Season OneEdit
We have Westeros, a large continent with many territories and lands ruled by multiple Lords, all ruled by one King who sits the Iron Throne. In the beginning, Rolf was King, but there was unrest in the Kingdom. Rolf had seized his throne using means that many felt were unethical at best, and evil at worst. He ruled with an iron hand, enjoying infighting amongst houses, feeling that as long as the other houses were fighting and not allied, they did not present a danger to his position. He was very close to his foster brother, Lord Hadrian, and had even married Hadrian's sister. Hadrian was known to be a bit of a scoundrel, was unmarried but had dozens of bastard children throughout Westeros.
As the unrest grew, alliances began to grow up in the Kingdom. Miley allied himself with Lady Cedany, wedding their children to seal the alliance. There was an early alliance between Webb, Bellos, and Terrowin. Bellos also made friends with Benedict and Bellingham. In a show of good faith, Bellos sent one of his children to each of his allied houses, both to garner trust, and for his children to learn from his allies. Grey began to ally himself with Malkyn and Sadon. Gigas and Baelor stayed neutral at this point.
There was no love lost between Benedict and Marsh as both were merchant houses and had a history. Marsh appearantly had other enemies. Miley decided to throw a feast. He invited most of the other Lords and Ladies, including the King. Several declined to attend, due to feeling the roads were unsafe at such time of unrest, and Bellos and Bellingham never received invites, so they said, there was a great deal of curiousity over the fact that Bellos claimed he wasn't getting any ravens and there were rumors abound that his ravens were being shot down by someone, most suspected Grey.
In all, Baelor, Grey, Cedany, Sadon, Malkyn, Hadrian, and Rolf attended Miley's feast. During the feast, Sadon slipped Grey a note saying that Marsh was to be killed under the King's orders. The King later issued multiple threats, stating that he knew there were those who were plotting against him in the kingdom, and any who were caught doing so, would be swiftly dealt with. At this time, Marsh's keep was marched on by The King's men and killed, the words of his motto scrawled above his body.
This shook up many in the Kingdom. The Bellos, Terrowin, Webb, Bellingham, and Benedict alliance decided they needed to do something sooner rather than later. Several things happened in succession then. Webb had kept her spies planted in Miley's keep for quite some time so she knew all the comings and goings of his keep. Miley had allied with the King and Hadrian and had arranged for them to come to his keep as special guests for the wedding of his son to Cedany's daughter. Webb knew they would be gone, so she alerted her allies and they rode to King's Landing and took over the Iron Throne at this time. Webb kept any ravens from going out to warn the King, so none were aware of what had happened yet.
They then rode out to meet the King and Hadrian on their way back from the wedding and captured both. Then, with his allies support, Bellos was crowned King and named as his hand Webb, and his wardens Bellingham, Terrowin, and Millicent. He also decreed new laws, including one that all women would now be of equal status as men, that they had just as much right to inherit lands and titles. He also made rape a crime, as it had not been punished before, and required that bastard children be legitimized and taken care of by their fathers. In addition, he decreed that there would be no more infighting or killing between other houses without repercussions, promising a safer and secure Kingdom.
At this time, Grey kidnapped Millicent's daughter, Winifred, and issued her a note stating that she was to come, with her army to his keep and protect him, or the girl would die. She sent a note pleading for help to Webb before going. Around this same time, Grey also slipped into Bellos's keep and assassinated his wife, and Miley and Sadon marched onto Bellingham's keep, killing and pillaging, burning the structures to the ground, Sadon's men also raped many of the women. All were killed, even women and children. There was an uneasy alliance at this time between Grey and Miley, and both the Miley camp and the Bellos camp turtled up at this point, neither wanting to make the first move. Malkyn sent a letter at this time to Bellos stating that she was being held against her will by Miley and would be fleeing for King's Landing, hoping she would make it.
At this time, after receiving threats and ultimatems from Miley, both Baelor and Gigas lost their neutrality and joined the Bellos camp. Hadrian, in the dungeon, made a deal with Bellos to help him, and have his son pledge loyalty to the King. He refused to break his alliance with Miley himself, but was so disgusted by the actions of his former ally, that he chose to take the black and leave his son in his position, as a new ally of King Bellos.
Bellos had control of most of the merchant houses at this point, and he forbid them to provide food or aid to Miley's camp, starving them out. At this time, Miley decided to surrender and began his march with Cedany towards King's Landing. Sadon decided it was to risky of a situation for him, and fled, taking Grey's daughter, Norma with him. Grey remained in his keep with Millicent protecting him, unsure if he wished to surrender.
Webb and Terrowin rode to Grey's keep, hoping to rescue Millicent, and take down or capture Grey. Before they reached it, Grey attempted a maneuver which involved some of his spies killing Millicent's daughter while making it look like he was trying to save her. It backfired badly, Millicent went mad with grief and killed Grey, and everyone she saw. She burned his keep to the ground and took off with her army, including some of Grey's. Seeing how broken she was, Webb and Terrowin let her go.
Meanwhile, the armies of Bellingham and Gigas met Miley and Cedany halfway to King's Landing and battled. Bellingham killed both Cedany and Miley. Their children were spared and brought to King's Landing. With no more rebels, all remaining Lords and Ladies swore fealty to the new King.
The children of Miley, Grey, Cedany, and Rolf were made to take the black, or fostered until they came of age. Miley's son Remos was allowed to swear fealty to the King and along with his wife, Sasha Cedany, take over the Miley household.
