The Battle of Moat Cailin was a battle during the War of the Five Kings. It was part of the campaign orchestrated by Balon Greyjoy - who had crowned himself King of the Iron Islands - to conquer the North.

Balon dispatches the Iron Fleet through Blazewater Bay to seize Moat Cailin, effectively cutting off the Northern army south of the Neck.[1]

In the books Edit

In the books, the attack on Moat Cailin also happens "offscreen". Victarion Greyjoy leads the attack to seize the ancient fortress.
