Guaire Amalasan was born in Darmovan - modern day Arad Doman - and was one of the most powerful False Dragons of the Third Age. The conflict to capture him became known as the War of the Second Dragon.
He declared himself the Dragon in FY 939. Six Aes Sedai tried to take him captive; he killed one and stilled two others. He was able to conquer almost half of the Westlands in the war known as the War of the Second Dragon, including taking the city of Far Madding in only three weeks. Eventually he was defeated by Artur Hawkwing and gentled by the White Tower in FY 943.
