    There was an opening feast in the King’s Landing, in connection to the fifth anniversary of the marriage of King Viserys I and his second wife, Queen Alicent Hightower. At this great tournament, Queen Alicent wore a green gown whilst, Viserys’ daughter by his first marriage, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen wore a red and black dress representing her tradition. Thus the Princess’s party dressed in black came to be known as the Blacks and the Queen’s party dressed in green came to be known as the Greens or the Green council. The loyal faction at the court took to these fashion trends and it became a custom to refer to each council as the Greens and the Blacks.
