Gargon Qoherys, also known as Gargon the Guest, was the Lord of Harrenhal and head of House Qoherys during the reigns of kings Aegon I Targaryen and Aenys I Targaryen.

Appearance and Character

Gargon was fat and considered foolish.[1] He had a lusty appetite and was known to attend each wedding in his domain to take advantage of the lord's right to the first night, giving him the nickname Gargon the Guest. He also made free with the wives and daughters of his own servants.[1][2]


Gargon was the grandson of Lord Quenton Qoherys, whom he directly succeeded after he died in a fall from his horse in 9 AC. During the rebellion of Harren the Red in 37 AC, the father of a maid deflowered by Gargon allowed Harren to enter Harrenhal. Harren and his outlaws dragged Gargon from his bed to the castle godswood, where he sliced off Gargon's genitals, and fed them to a dog while Gargon bled to death. As Gargon was the sole living Qoherys, the house became extinct and Harrenhal was then granted to House Harroway.[3][1]
