The Battle of Bitter River was a great battle fought at the Bitter River in the riverlands during the coming of the Andals.
Houses Blackwood and Bracken, ancient rivals, allied together to oppose the invading Andals. According to song, the First Men were shattered by 777 charging Andal knights, who were accompanied by seven septons, as seven is a holy number in the Faith of the Seven. The Brackens converted to the Faith while the Blackwoods remained loyal to the old gods.
