A rebellion is an organized uprising against a sovereign or liege, with the goal of overthrowing the established authority. Some rebellions are fought to seize control of a throne, or to gain independence.

In the Seven Kingdoms, it is considered a serious crime and an act of treason and oathbreaking.
