Castellan of Storm's End
|Book(s)||A Clash of Kings (mentioned)|
Ser Harbert was a castellan of Storm's End. Already old in 278 AC, he was the great-uncle of Robert, Stannis and Renly Baratheon. His family name is not stated so it is not clear if Harbert was a Baratheon himself. Since Ser Cortnay Penrose was castellan when Renly was made master of laws, it is clear that Harbert was dead before Renly achieved manhood.
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. 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.
