House Baratheon of Storm's End is one of the Great Houses of Westeros and they rule over the Kingdom of the Storm Lands. The Barathoens are descended fro Orys Barathoen, the bastard brother of Aegon the Conqueror and the Baratheons have served as Lords Paramounts since then, with a brief period where they themselves ruled as Kings after Robert's Rebellion. Their sigil is a black stag on a yellow field. There words are, "Ours is the Fury."
Death of Stannis Baratheon Edit
Stannis Baratheon was pressing his claim for the Iron Throne after the death of Robert I Baratheon during the War of the Five Kings. He was defeated at the battle of the Blackwater and retreated North, securing a victory at the battle of Castle Black. While in the North, Stannis tried to seek out a Stark to place in Winterfell and gain the support of the Northern Lords. Stannis sends his hand, Davos Seaworth to seek out Rickon Stark in Skagos but Davos is unable to do so and dies on the Island and is never heard from again.
Stannis, even without a Stark attempts to liberate Winterfell from the Boltons in the Siege of Winterfell. Stannis dies in this battle and his sword, lightbringer is found broken beside his slain corpse. After their victory, the Boltons are able to capture Shireen Baratheon who they later offer as a token of fealty to Queen Daenerys Targaryen.
Battle for King's Landing Edit
King Tommen I Baratheon engaged the forces of Aegon Targaryen and later Queen Daenerys Targaryen in the climatic Battle for King's Landing. The initial conflict is fought between the Baratheon forces and Aegon's Golden Company. Aegon is able to break down the Mud Gate and gain access to the city and engaged in a fierce skirmish in the streets of King's Landing. Just as this battle starts to get underway, Daenerys Targaryen begins her landing in Westeros, and proceeds to join in the frey in the city. Daenerys, alongside her unsullied, dragons and Dornish allies are able to defeat the forces of Aegon and Tommen and sieze the city in the process. This victory came at a cost, as Tommen Baratheon, Cersei Lannister, Jon Connington and Jaime Lannister were all found about the dead after the battle. The death of King Tommen Baratheon marked the end of the reign of the Baratheons on the Iron Throne.
Lady Paramount Edit
After the Battle for King's Landing, Shireen Baratheon is given as a token of fealty from the Boltons to Queen Daenerys. The Queen considers exectuing her for being an offspring of the usurper, but decides against it because Shireen was only a young girl. Shireen is allowed to return to the Stormlands and serve as Lady Paramount on the condition that she convert to the Seven and abandon her father's Red God.
