Most Devout

From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Jump to: navigation, search

The Most Devout are a council of the highest ranking clergy of the Faith of the Seven. They can be identified by their cloth-of-silver vestments and crystal coronals.[1] Although the High Septon is usually elected from among the Most Devout, this is not a requirement.[2]


Before the arrival of the Targaryens, the seat of the Faith was the ornate Starry Sept in Oldtown. The High Septon and the Most Devout now convene in the Great Sept of Baelor in King's Landing.

Disregarding the Most Devout, a simple stonemason and a young boy were High Septons during the reign of King Baelor I Targaryen[2]

A third of the Most Devout died during the Great Spring Sickness.[3]
