The brotherhood without banners also call themselves "king's men", although they support King Robert Baratheon.

The king's men are members of Stannis Baratheon's court that hold to their worship of the Seven even after the red priestess, Melisandre, brought the faith of R'hllor to Dragonstone and converted Queen Selyse.[1] Melisandre's strange faith, aggressive council, and mysterious powers make her unpopular among some of Stannis's men. Therefore, the distinction is usually made between this group and the queen's men, those who converted to the faith of R'hllor and follow Selyse and Melisandre closely. At the Merman's Court, Davos Seaworth tells Lord Wyman Manderly that the king's men outnumber the queen's men in Stannis's host.[2]

Notable King's Men


King's men in one corner and queen's men in another, but only a few. It’s too cold for most of them.[3]
- thoughts of Jon Snow

Lady Melisandre is a priestess of the red god. Queen Selyse has adopted her faith, along with many others, but more of His Grace’s followers still worship the Seven. Myself among them.[2]
