History

After King Maegor the Cruel wiped out House Harroway he decreed that the strongest of his knights would have the castle of Harrenhal, though not all the lands. 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 and House Towers was granted Harrenhal, though Walton died soon after from the wounds he took in gaining his prize. The house failed two generations later and House Strong was given Harrenhal during the reign of Jaehaerys I.[2]
