Their map colour is Blood Orange


Dragonstone was established as a castle after the Targaryens first landed in Westeros, it being their first major stronghold in the area. The castle of Dragonstone is known as being an impregnable fortress that can be held with very few men, and as such makes for a great capital for a future king. When Aegon the Conqueror established himself as an independent monarch and launched his campaigns against the other kingdoms, he used Dragonstone as his base of operations and staged their attacks from inside of there. The castle itself happens to have a full map of Westeros built into a table. The kingdom of dragonstone was established when Stannis Baratheon declared Independence from the crown and made himself an official monarch vying for the crown to unite all of Westeros. The area surrounding Dragonstone is filled with small peninsulas and islands that each have their own castles and villages with lords to rule over them, making it ideal for each ruler to field his own army. Perhaps this explains why Dragonstone has not been attacked by an enemy kingdom yet, due to its natural defenses. Their current ruler believes himself to be a reincarnation of some ancient hero, someone who is supposed to save the world from an age old darkness that threatens to overtake all light. He is the first Westerosi monarch to worship the lord of light R'hllor. If you listen closely in the dead of night some say you can hear the screams of those who have been burned as sacrifices to this lord, and they say if you look out over the ocean you can see the smoke from burned flesh rising into the air.


Dragonstone is one of the the major factions in Westeros. Dragonstone is located right above The Stormlands and to the right of The Westerlands. Because they are located on an island for the most part, this makes battle against dragonstone quite difficult as they tend to have the advantage on the sea. Due to their location on the sea and their islands, the kingdom of Dragonstone has great defenses. They also have a city located at the bottom of Stormland territory and a few castles located in the middle of Stormland territory. Dragonstone is a massive supplier of fish and salt because of their location on islands in the sea. They also suffer from not having as many cities as some of the other kingdoms. Dragonstone is mainly a military force rather than an agricultural power. As their king is a great general and leader he is very respected among his subjects, however he is not very charismatic and suffers from a lack of support.


Dragonstone widely worships R'Hllor.

Troop Tree

Dragonstone Troop Tree

Dragonstone uses a wide array of troops that are pretty balanced. However they specialize in medium armored infantry and medium armored shock cavalry. Because Dragonstone has good medium infantry units they are best used in sieges and protecting archers on the field. In a field battle it is advisable to send your Dragonstone cavalry slamming through the enemies infantry in order the break their formation, and then charge your infantry through the crippled infantry and archers. Though, A good way to combat Dragonstone units is by having your archers gain the high ground and fire down upon them. Westerland crossbowmen seem to do a good job of this.


-Cavalry and higher tier infantry have great armor

-High tier infantry uses military hammers


-Archers use hunting bows

Extra Infomation

King Stannis Baratheon has the unique sword Lightbringer. You can either execute him or send him to the wall to obtain it. Contrary to popular belief, his sword is not Valyrian steel, meaning it will not harm White Walkers. Dragonstone is the only kingdom in Westeros with a king who worships the lord of light. Dragonstone is the second smallest Westerosi kingdom, with the Iron Islands being the first. The fortress of Dragonstone is able to be held by a small garrison due to the structure of it. Lords can often get stuck in the port of Dragonstone, Therefore if lords are not showing up to your campaigns it is wise to look for them there.
