After King Maegor I Targaryen wiped out House Harroway in 44 AC he decreed that the strongest of his knights would have the castle of Harrenhal, though not the lands House Harroway held separatly from Harrenhall, which he gave to others. Twenty-three knights fought in the blood-soaked streets of Lord Harroway's Town for the prize. Ser Walton Towers, though gravely wounded, was the victor. He was named Lord of Harrenhal, though he died soon after from the wounds he had taken in the battle. House Towers failed two generations later, after which King Jaehaerys I Targaryen granted Harrenhal to House Strong.
