Battle on the Honeywine

The Honeywine is a large river in the Reach. Beginning near Brightwater Keep, it flows south and is joined by a tributary at Honeyholt, then continues south to Oldtown where it is joined by a tributary originating to the east by Uplands. It then flows into Whispering Sound at southern Oldtown. The Honeywine is the agricultural capital of the Reach. 

The Battle of the Honeywine was one of many battles fought during the Dance of the Dragons, the civil war between the greens of Aegon II Targaryen and the blacks of Rhaenyra Targaryen for control of the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms after the death of their father, King Viserys I Targaryen.

Without a doubt, mead (aks honey wine) is very important to Vikings.

Luckily mead is not something made up. It is real. It could help you stay healthy according to Vikings' folklore. The reason why mead has such beneficial effects is that it is made from honey. Thousands of years ago, honey is treated as a material for natural treatment with its nutrition and antibacterial effect. Also, mead is fermented by honey.
