Herrock Kenning, known as Herrock the Whoreson, was an ironborn warrior of House Kenning of Harlaw who founded House Kenning of Kayce in the westerlands.[1] His warhorn, the Horn of Herrock, has been passed down by his descendants.[2]

History

During the wars between the driftwood kings and the Kings of the Rock, Herrock the Whoreson used his horn as a signal for the whores of Kayce to open a postern gate. His men then captured the town for House Lannister of Casterly Rock. Three different ironborn kings attempted to retake the town over the years; Herrock personally killed two of them.[1]
