Lord Commander Hoare was a member of House Hoare who served as the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch during Aegon's Conquest. His given name has not been revealed. He was a son of King Halleck Hoare and a brother to King Harren Hoare.

History

Lord Commander Hoare led the Night's Watch when Aegon the Conquerer invaded Westeros with his dragons. The Lord Commander's brother was Harren the Black, King of the Isles and the Rivers. Although Lord Commander Hoare commanded ten thousand swords at the Wall, he remained loyal to the Watch and did not intervene when Harren and his sons were slain by Aegon's dragon, Balerion, during the burning of Harrenhal.[1]

Quotes

They came from a hundred quarrelsome kingdoms, and they knew times may change, but men do not. So they pledged as well that the Night's Watch would take no part in the battles of the realms it guarded. They kept their pledge. When Aegon slew Black Harren and claimed his kingdom, Harren's brother was Lord Commander on the Wall, with ten thousand swords to hand. He did not march.[1]
