Harmund I Hoare, known as Harmund the Host, was a King of the Iron Islands from House Hoare. The Hoare kings of his era were opposed by the priests of the Drowned God because of their support for the Faith of the Seven, discouraging of reaving, and promotion of trade.
Harmund I was the first literate iron king and a man fond of books. From his seat on Great Wyk he welcomed travelers and merchants to the Iron Islands. He also protected septons and septas of the Faith.
