[The High Septon] claims himself King on the grounds of the words of a shameful coward and denies me my claim on ground that his comes before blood.

A Battle of Faith was a major conflict occuring in Queen's Landing during the first moon of 368 AC. It was a conflict fought between forces loyal to the faith, and the High Septon and a defense initiated by Ardrian Celtigar and Lyonel Baratheon.


Background Edit

Upon receiving news of the kidnapping of Alysanne Targaryen, King Valarr Targaryen entered a fit of rage ending with the death of three members of his Kingsguard. Shortly after, Valarr arrived at the docks of Queen's Landing with the intent to sail for Dragonstone. At this time, forces led by the High Septon arrived and demanded that Valarr organize the rescue party for his betrothed. Upon refusing, the High Septon demanded that Valarr abdicate the throne, to which Valarr agreed. Shortly after, troops led by Ardrian Celtigar arrived, in hopes to save the King and prevent his act of cowardice. Lord Celtigar was unsuccessful, and after failed negotiations with the High Septon, chaos ensued in the capital. Valarr Targaryen surrendered the Throne to the High Septon, surrendered his prized Valayrian Steel Sword to Celtigar, and made way to flee Westeros for good.
