Ser Lucamore Strong, also known as Lucamore the Lusty, was a knight of House Strong and a member of the Kingsguard of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen. He was later sent to the Night's Watch by King Jaehaerys I.


Ser Lucamore served as a knight of the Kingsguard for King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[1] However, he broke his Kingsguard vows of not taking a wife or fathering children:[2] He had three wives, by whom he had sixteen children according to Princess Arianne Martell and Ser Arys Oakheart,[1] and thirty children according to Ser Loras Tyrell.[3] When his Sworn Brothers discovered his deceit, they gelded him, after which King Jaehaerys I sent Lucamore to the Wall to join the Night's Watch.[1][3][4]

After he died, Lucamore became known as Lucamore the Lusty.[1] His deceits are recorded in the White Book[1] and are sung about in a humorous song.[1][3]
