The prologue from A Game of Thrones takes place in 297AC.

Year 297 After the Conquest (297AC) is a year in the Westerosi calendar, the 297th after Aegon's crowning in Oldtown that maesters and educated people use as a reference to date the years.

297AC was a quiet year, but is marked by the first recorded activity of the Others in Westeros. This was further marked by rangers from the Night's Watch disappearing more and more. Further, 297AC saw the fortunes of Viserys Targaryen and his sister Daenerys going up, as magister Illyrio Mopatis took them in his care.
