- "Ser Barristan Selmy of the Kingsguard led the assault on Old Wyk, while I subdued Great Wyk, the largest of the Iron Islands. But Robert saved the seat of House Greyjoy, Pyke, for himself and Lord Eddard."
- ―Stannis Baratheon
The Siege of Great Wyk was a battle of the Greyjoy Rebellion. Following the destruction of the Iron Fleet at the Battle of Fair Isle, Stannis Baratheon led the Royal Fleet in a counterattack and subdued Great Wyk, the largest of the Iron Islands, while Old Wyk fell to Ser Barristan Selmy. These two victories paved the way for the subsequent Siege of Pyke, which spelled the end of the ironborn rebellion.
