The Faith Militant Uprising was an uprising that took place in 37AL, when Aenys I Targaryen took the throne. The Faith of the Seven did not consider him a legitimate heir because he was born of incest. This unseated Aenys I Targaryen, who was inefficient at dealing with the uprising, and instead placed the throne in the hands of his half-brother, Maegor I Targaryen, who crushed the rebellion using violent and cruel tactics. His nephew, Jaehaerys I Targaryen, managed to create peace by negotiation.
