The Battle of Blackwater Bay


The Battle of the Blackwater (also called the Battle of Blackwater Bay) is the largest battle in the War of the Five Kings to date. The battle was an attempt by Stannis Baratheon to take King's Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms, and to seize the Iron Throne from Joffrey Baratheon. It required a naval assault and an attack on the city gates by land. Tyrion Lannister, acting Hand of the King, led the defense of the city.
