The High Septon was High Septon of the Faith of the Seven during the reign of kings Viserys I and Aegon II Targaryen.[1][2]

Character

By 129 AC, he was an old and frail man.[1][2]

History

Septon Eustace anointed King Aegon II Targaryen instead of the High Septon, as he was unable to make the travel to King's Landing due to his age and health.[1][2]

At the begining of the Dance of the Dragons, Ser Otto Hightower, Aegon's Hand, sent the men suspected of supporting Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen's claim on the Iron Throne over Aegon's to the Red Keep's dungeons. The High Septon sent word from the Starry Sept in Oldtown asking after some of the missing.[1][2]

Notes

  1. The reigning High Septon was too old and frail to make the journey from Oldtown to King's Landing in 129 AC. However, an High Septon did make the journey two years later to attend and pronounce the marriage vows at the wedding of Prince Aegon and Princess Jaehaera Targaryen. We can therefore assume those are two different High Septons.
