Ser Erryk Cargyll was a knight of House Cargyll. He was a member of the Kingsguard during the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen.[1]


Erryk was the twin brother of Ser Arryk Cargyll, who was also a member of the Kingsguard.

Erryk and his brother Arryk were both unhorsed by Ser Criston Cole at the tourney for King Viserys I's accession at Maidenpool in 105 AC.[2]

In 120 AC King Viserys I Targaryen made Erryk the sworn shield of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, replacing Ser Harwin Strong.[2]

After the death of Viserys, Erryk joined Ser Steffon Darklyn and Ser Lorent Marbrand in siding with the blacks and joined the Queensguard of Rhaenyra, instead of supporting King Aegon II Targaryen.

Ser Criston, the Lord Commander of Aegon II's Kingsguard, tasked Arryk with infiltrating Dragonstone in the guise of his twin, Erryk. It is uncertain whether he was to kill Rhaenyra or her children. The twins met in the citadel, however. Singers claim that, after professing their love for each other, the twins fought for an hour before dying together. Mushroom claims they instead condemned the other as a traitor and mortally wounded each other within moments.[3][4]
