King's Landing, formally known as Aegon's Fort was founded by Aegon Targaryen, known by most as Aegon the Conquerer. At the Start of his conquest, Aegon had established a small wooden fort atop a hill, where his ships first landed from Dragonstone. He and his sisters, Rhaenys and Visenya, used this location as a base for their campaign to conquer the continent.
Having achieved his goal, Aegon enlisted the support of his fellow Valyrian allies across the narrow sea, namely the wealthy and powerful House Rogare, a Valyrian Dragon Lord family who had settled in Lys some decades before the Doom. The Rogares ruled Essos in all but name and title. They are the owners of the Rogare Bank of Essos. And the leaders of the Gold Company of Sellswords. With Rogare gold, Aegon raised a magnificent castle on the site of his original Fort. The surrounding area was renamed as "King's Landing" and has since become the capital of Westeros. There within the keep is the famous Iron Throne, forged from Dragon fire to sit the King of the Andals, Rhoynar and First Men.
King's Landing is a fast booming city. It enjoys a warm climate and life there is luxurious for those that can afford it, although it is not without its slums such as Flea Bottom.
