Where is it said that the war of the 9PK was the fifth Blackfyre Rebellion? I don't recall reading that anywhere. RR

The war was lead by Maelys Blackfyre, the last of the Blackfyre line. You should read up on A Wiki of Ice and Fire for book questions, this wiki only covers the show. DRAEVAN13House-Targaryen-heraldry 14:02, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

Well...strictly speaking, the War of the Ninepenny Kings has never been specifically identified as "The Fifth Blackfyre Rebellion". It was led by a Blackfyre, and it's been mentioned that there were at least five Blackfyre Rebellions, but these have never been combined to say the War of the Ninepenny Kings was the Fifth Blackfyre Rebellion. However, while this has not been entirely confirmed, it seems a logical conclusion that the War of the Ninepenny Kings was the Fifth and final rebellion....which will be revised if GRRM ever states that it was actually the NINTH or something. Consider that the first rebellion was in 195 AL, and the "second rebellion" was in 212 AL (though rather grandly named, the second rebellion actually barely got started; more of an "intrigue"). The War of the Ninepenny Kings happened roughly around 260 AL. How many more Blackfyre Rebellions could there possibly have been in that intervening fifty year period?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 20:35, April 13, 2013 (UTC)
