- "The Iron Throne commanded the Red Kraken to stop reaving and when he didn't, a mistress opened his throat as he slept."
- ―Euron Greyjoy
The assassination of Dalton Greyjoy took place after the end of the Dance of the Dragons.
Lord Dalton Greyjoy, known as the Red Kraken, sided with Rhaenyra Targaryen during the Dance of the Dragons, as this allowed the ironborn to return to their old way of life and pillage the Westerlands.
After the end of the war, the ironborn continued attacking and robbing the Lannisters. The crown commanded Lord Greyjoy to cease his raiding. When he didn't, one of his mistresses slit his throat while he was asleep.
In the books
In The World of Ice & Fire, the assassination occurs the same way, with minor changes. It was the regency of King Aegon III Targaryen who commanded Dalton to cease his raiding, though he ignored them.
