Leowyn Corbray was the Lord of Heart's Home and head of House Corbray during the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons,[1] later becoming Protector of the Realm in the minority of King Aegon III Targaryen.[2]

Appearance and Character

Mushroom says of Lord Leowyn: "He was thick of neck and thick of wit, but never have I known a man to fart so loudly."[2]

History

Leowyn was the elder brother of Ser Corwyn Corbray, who wielded Lady Forlorn. In 130 AC, Lady Jeyne Arryn gave Lord Leowyn and Ser Corwyn command of her army of ten thousand men sent forth from Gulltown. After the death of King Aegon II Targaryen in 131 AC, Lord Leowyn stood at the prow of a Braavosi cog in the Gullet and watched a line of Velaryon warships tear down the golden dragon sigil and raise up the red dragon sigil in its place, to mark the ascension of King Aegon III.[1]

The Braavosi landed Lord Corbray at Duskendale with half the power Lady Arryn had sent down, the other half under the command of Ser Corwyn at Maidenpool. This may be an error, as Archmaester Gyldayn later refers to Lord Leowyn leaving Maidenpool, and Ser Corwyn leaving Duskendale.[4]

The town welcomed the Arryn hosts with feasts and flowers. Soon after Lord Cregan Stark's hold over court had begun, word arrived that Lord Corbray had left Maidenpool accompanied by Lord Manfryd Mooton, Lord Brune, and Ser Rennifer Crabb. When Lord Corbray and Ser Corwyn arrived at King's Landing, they joined the ruling council and added their voices to those of Lady Arryn and the Lads. This contributed to power beginning to slip from Lord Stark's hands.[4]

The king named Lord Corbray, a black, Protector of the Realm, whilst Ser Tyland Lannister, a green, was named Hand of the King. By law, both of them were beholden to the council of regents. Ser Tyland quickly achieved an unspoken dominance over Lord Leowyn, gathering more power to himself as time passed. Lord Corbray died in 133 AC, of the Winter Fever, alongside his mistress and several of his servants.[2]

Notes:
  1. When Lord Leowyn died in 133 AC, his brother Corwyn didn't inherit the lordship of Heart's Home. Quenton, who was Lord of Heart's Home in 134 AC, is known to have been Corwyn's nephew. This implies that Quenton was Leowyn's son but it can't be definitely be proven.
