The ambush on the Wendwater was an attack on the Targaryen host during Aegon's Conquest.

Prelude

Shortly after Aegon's coronation, the Conqueror dispatched the greater part of his host south to Storm's End under the leadership of Orys Baratheon, accompanied by Queen Rhaenys Targaryen atop Meraxes.[1]

Attack

While crossing the Wendwater, the Targaryen host was ambushed by Lords Errol, Fell, and Buckler, cutting down more than a thousand men before fading back into the trees of the kingswood. Queen Rhaenys unleashed Meraxes and torched the forest.[1]
