Aegon's first test was the first organised opposition against Aegons conquest. It ended up being a one sided battle due to Balerion's presence.

The battle

The opposition came form Lord Darklyn of Duskendale and Lord Mooton of Maidenpool, who joined their power and marched south with three thousand men. Aegon sent Orys Baratheon to meet them on the march, whist he descended on them from above with Balerion. Both lords were slain, Darklyn's son and Mooton's brother, Jon Mooton, leaving Duskendale and Maidenpool to rethink it's approach to the Targaryens.

Aftermanth

After the defeat and deaths of their lords, Darklyn’s son and Mooton’s brother gave up their castles and swore their swords to House Targaryen.[1] Visenya claimed the riches of Duskendale, which at the time was the principal port on the Narrow Sea, greatly expanding House Targeryans resources.
