From George R.R. Martin’s book “Fire & Blood”, the history of the Targaryen dynasty that ruled Westeros for three hundred years.

Baelon Targaryen has just returned to King’s Landing after having killed countless Myrish enemies with Dark Siter (the Valyrian steel longsword), while his dragon Vhagar burned their fleet.

He fought, in what was to become known as Prince Baelon’s Wroth, to avenge his brother Aemon previously killed dishonorably by Myrish invaders.

The quote comes from the Fire & Blood chapter:
The Long Reign Jaehaerys and Alysanne: Policy, Progeny, and Pain

Reference excerpt from the books: The Long Reign Jaehaerys and Alysanne: Policy, Progeny, and Pain; Fire & Blood

Baelon the Brave played his part in the slaughter, with Dark Sister in his hand.
When he returned to King’s Landing with his brother’s corpse, the smallfolk lined the streets screaming his name and hailing him as a hero.
But it is said that when he saw his mother again, he fell into her arms and wept
I slew a thousand of them,
he said
but it will not bring him back
And the queen stroked his hair and said
I know, I know.

And the queen stroked his hair and said I know, I know.
