Ballads of the Bay
|Liege:||Stannis Baratheon, Lord of Dragonstone, 2nd Heir to the Iron Throne|
The former seat of House Targaryen, Dragonstone is an ancient castle festooned with dragon carvings that rises from the narrow sea beyond the Blackwater Bay. When King Robert awarded Dragonstone, a lordship of small influence and few banners, to his brother Stannis, it was viewed as an insult. There are few houses sworn to Dragonstone. Isolation and lack of arable lands make houses sworn to Dragonstone small and poor, but the rocky islands and remoteness make besieging them difficult.
