Battle at the Horns of Hazzat
|Battle at the Horns of Hazzat|
|Conflict||Targaryen campaign in Slaver's Bay|
|Place||Horns of Hazzat|
A battle at the Horns of Hazzat occurs during the Targaryen campaign in Slaver's Bay.
After the fall of Astapor, Daenerys Targaryen leaves a council to rule the city when she continues on to Yunkai. Cleon, a freed slave who worked as a butcher, takes control of Astapor, however, after killing the council. Cleon begins training new Unsullied after enslaving highborn Astapori youths.
Although Daenerys forces Yunkai to surrender its slaves, the Wise Masters of Yunkai resume slaving after Daenerys continues north to Meereen. Yunkai begins raising a new army of slave levies and sellswords. The Yunkai'i are joined by iron legions from New Ghis. The Yunkish host is presumably led by Yurkhaz zo Yunzak, the richest man of Yunkai.
Cleon the Great sends Lord Ghael, a former slave, as an envoy to Daenerys, now Queen of Meereen. She rejects Cleon's offer of marriage and an alliance against Yunkai.
Without the assistance of Daenerys's soldiers, Cleon meets the Yunkish host in battle at the Horns of Hazzat. Cleon and his inexperienced Unsullied flee in defeat back to his palace in Astapor.
After hearing of Cleon's defeat, Daenerys regrets not coming to his aid at Hazzat. However, Skahaz mo Kandaq reminds her that the Sons of the Harpy would try to take over Meereen if she left her city. Cleon is eventually killed by his own men when he orders them to attack the Yunkish host during the siege of Astapor. He is briefly succeeded by Cleon the Second.
