Battle at Acorn Hall
|Battle at Acorn Hall|
|Conflict||Dance of the Dragons|
|Place||Acorn Hall, riverlands|
|Result||Victory for the greens|
Lord Jason Lannister was slain during the Battle at the Red Fork, with Ser Adrian Tarbeck taking command of the victorious greens and Lord Petyr Piper leading the surviving blacks in retreat. As the westermen marched east toward Harrenhal, they were confronted at Acorn Hall by blacks led by Lord Joseth Smallwood, the lord of the castle, and Lord Piper. Petyr died during the battle, however, and Joseth retreated into Acorn Hall. According to Mushroom, Lord Piper died of a burst heart when he saw his grandson's head on a spear.
Rather than besiege the few survivors in Acorn Hall, the Lannister host bypassed it and continued their advance. Thus Stanton Piper and Joseth Smallwood survived, and later in the war they scraped up new levies from old men and green boys to fight in the Second Battle of Tumbleton.
- House Crakehall, House Swyft, and House Reyne are not directly mentioned at this battle. However, Ser Clarent Crakehall, Lord Swyft, and Lord Reyne were part of the Lannister host at the Battle by the Lakeshore. Therefore it can be assumed that Crakehalls, Swyfts and Reynes were present at this battle.
