The Battle of the Whispering Wood occurred here, during which Robb Stark lured Jaime Lannister's army into a trap and annihilated it, capturing the Kingslayer himself, thus lifting Jaime's siege of Riverrun.
In the books
In the Song of Ice and Fire novels the Whispering Wood is north-west of Riverrun.
The first season HBO viewers guide showed the Whispering Wood to the northwest of Riverrun. The second season map, however, positions it east of Seagard. The initial Season 2 viewer's guide map seems to have been in error, because the HBO Viewer's Guide "Battleground Westeros" feature released later in Season 2 positioned Whispering Wood as immediately north-west of Riverrun, as in the books.
