Ser Morgan Hightower was a member of House Hightower and Commander of the Warrior's Sons during the Faith Militant uprising. He was the younger brother of Lord Martyn Hightower.[N 1]

History

Morgan already served with the Warrior's Sons at the time of Aegon's Conquest.[1] He was the only Warrior's Son pardoned by King Maegor the Cruel, leading some to suspect Ser Morgan had killed the High Septon in exchange for mercy.[2]

Notes

  1. In The World of Ice and Fire, it is stated that "The unexpected nature of the High Septon's death in 44 AC aroused much suspicion, however, and whispers of murder persist to this day. Some believe His High Holiness was removed by his own brother, Ser Morgan Hightower, commander of the Warrior's Sons in Oldtown (and it is undeniably true that Ser Morgan was the sole Warrior's Son pardoned by King Maegor)." (The World of Ice and Fire, The Reach: Oldtown) However, it has been confirmed that Morgan Hightower was not the High Septon's brother, but Lord Martyn's, and that the printed statement was in error
