Lodos the Twice-Drowned was a man who boasted of being the priest-king "Lodos" reborn, during the reign of King Aenys I Targaryen.

History

The would-be monarch Lodos had walked into the Sunset Sea and disappeared, early in the reign of King Aegon I Targaryen.[1]

After King Aenys I Targaryen succeeded to the Iron Throne in 37 AC, a man claiming to be Lodos the Twice-Drowned, returned from the halls of the Drowned God, led a revolt in the Iron Islands against the new king. The revolt, however, was swiftly put down by Goren Greyjoy, Lord of the Iron Islands, who descended with a hundred longships on Old Wyk and Great Wyk where most of Lodos's followers were concentrated. Thousands of his disciples were put to the sword. Lord Goren sent the pickled head of Lodos to the Iron Throne.[2][3]
