Horgan Hoare, known as Horgan Priestkiller, was a King of the Iron Islands from House Hoare. The Hoare kings of his era were opposed by the drowned men because of their support for the Faith of the Seven, discouraging of reaving, and promotion of trade.[1]


Horgan was the great-grandson of King Wulfgar the Widowmaker, who had allowed the construction on Great Wyk of the first sept in the Iron Islands. When Horgan allowed the building of a sept on Old Wyk, which was once the site of the holy kingsmoots, the drowned men of the Drowned God rose in rebellion. According to Archmaester Haereg, Horgan responded by slaughtering these priests.[1]
