High King of the Vale, the Fingers and the Mountains of the Moon was the title claimed by Robar II Royce, the Bronze King of House Royce, when he unified all the First Men in the Vale proper, the Fingers and the Mountains of the Moon under his rule with the goal of fighting against the Andal invaders, who had already carved out kingdoms for themselves by taking advantage of the rivalries between the First Men.[citation needed]Redforts, Hunters, Belmores, and Coldwaters, as well smaller clans and houses, were all brought together with marriages, grants of land or gold and, in one case, outshooting Lord Hunter in an archery contest - though legend claims King Robar cheated. He even won the allegiance of reputed sorceress Ursula Upcliff of Witch Isle. Thus Robar was proclaimed High King of the Vale, the Fingers and the Mountains of the Moon.[citation needed]

King Robar was the only one to bear the title, however, as he was slain in the Battle of Seven Stars, after which the entirety of the Vale came under the rule of House Arryn as Kings of Mountain and Vale.[1]
