Seizure of westerlands gold mines
|Seizure of westerlands gold mines|
|Conflict||War of the Five Kings|
|Place||Castamere, Nunn's Deep, Pendric Hills in the westerlands|
The seizure of westerlands gold mines takes place in 299 AC during the War of the Five Kings.
In order to defeat a host being trained by Ser Stafford Lannister, Robb Stark leaves Riverrun and marches for the westerlands. Bypassing the Golden Tooth, the new King in the North smashes the new westermen host at Oxcross. Following his victory Robb divides his force to launch further attacks upon the westerlands.
While Lord Rickard Karstark and Galbart Glover raid the coastline of the Sunset Sea and Lady Maege Mormont leads thousands of cattle back to Riverrun, Lord Greatjon Umber is sent by Robb to capture several gold mines to hurt House Lannister's wealth. Castamere, Nunn's Deep, and the Pendric Hills are seized and held until Robb's withdrawal from the westerlands.
Returning to Riverrun after the storming of the Crag, Robb tells Ser Edmure Tully he remained in the westerlands after Oxcross in hopes of drawing Lord Tywin Lannister back to his homeland. Following the Red Wedding, Tywin grants Castamere to Ser Rolph Spicer.
