Harbert
Title Ser
Castellan of Storm's End
Allegiance House Baratheon
Book(s) A Clash of Kings (mentioned)

Ser Harbert was a castellan of Storm's End. Already old in 278 ᴀᴄ, he was the great-uncle of Robert, Stannis and Renly Baratheon.[1] His family name is not stated, so the exact relation is unknown. Since Ser Cortnay Penrose was castellan when Renly was made master of laws,[citation needed] it is clear that Harbert had died by the time Renly left for King's Landing.

History

During his time as castellan, Ser Harbert counseled Maester Cressen to kill Patchface because he thought that the fool was suffering due to his deteriorated mental state. Cressen disagreed and won the argument.[2] Stannis Baratheon once found a wounded goshawk, which he named Proudwing, and nursed it back to health. He tried to teach the bird to hunt but had no success. Harbert persuaded Stannis to abandon the goshawk.[1]
