Reference excerpt from the book: ‘The Targaryen Kings: Daeron II‘ chapter; The World of Ice and Fire

The rebellion ended at the Redgrass Field, nigh on a year later.

Some have written of the boldness of the men who fought with Daemon, and others of their treason.
But for all their valor in the field and their enmity against Daeron, theirs was a lost cause.

Daemon and his eldest sons, Aegon and Aemon, were brought down beneath the withering fall of arrows sent by Brynden Rivers and his private guards,
the Raven’s Teeth.

This was followed by Bittersteel’s mad charge, with Blackfyre in his hand, as he attempted to rally Daemon’s forces.
Meeting with Bloodraven in the midst of the charge, a mighty duel ensued, which left Bloodraven blinded in one eye and sent Bittersteel fleeing.
