Lord Goren Greyjoy of Pyke was the Lord of the Iron Islands and Lord Reaper of Pyke during the final years of the reign of Aegon I Targaryen, and the reign of Aenys I Targaryen.

History

Goren succeeded his father, Lord Vickon Greyjoy, in 33 AC.[1] He had once been counselled by his father that it would be foolish to rise against Aegon I Targaryen and his dragons.[1]

Shortly after he succeeded his father, put down a clumsy conspiracy which attepted to crown Qhorin Volmark's son in Goren's stead.[1]

During the reign of Aenys I Targaryen, a man claiming to be king Lodos reborn rose in the Iron Isles. Lord Goren quickly dealt with him and sent his pickled head to King Aenys I. In return, Aenys granted Lord Goren a boon, which he used to oust the Faith of the Seven from the Iron Isles.[2]
