"But no maester can tell why. Even in our oldest records, the island on which it stands is called Battle Isle. What battle was fought there? And when? "
Battle Isle is an island on the Honeywine, in the second largest city of Westeros, Oldtown. The isle occupies The Hightower, the seat of House Hightower.


It is unknown why the island is so named, however, at some point, The Hightower was build atop it. Even the Maesters of The Citadel do not have any records of a battle on this isle.
