"My eldest brother, Rodrik, led a frontal assault on Seagard, a town built to protect the mainland from us. After ferocious fighting beneath the city walls he was slain by Lord Jason Mallister, and his men defeated. "
Theon Greyjoy[src]
The Battle of Seagard was a battle of the Greyjoy Rebellion, taking place approximately nine years before the War of the Five Kings. The forces of House Greyjoy, led by Rodrik Greyjoy, the firstborn son and heir of Balon Greyjoy, attacked Seagard, seat of House Mallister, on Ironman's Bay. The attack, however, was a failure and Rodrik Greyjoy was killed by Jason Mallister, the Lord of Seagard.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Lord Jason Mallister slew Rodrik beneath the walls of Seagard and drove his men back into the sea. It was the only time in three hundred years that the bell in the Booming Tower of Seagard was rung.

The battle at Seagard was a major setback for House Greyjoy, not only because Rodrik was Balon's heir, but also because the failed assault prevented the ironborn from grabbing any land in the riverlands.
