|Book(s)||The World of Ice and Fire (mentioned)|
Peremore Hightower, known as Peremore the Twisted, was the second son of King Uthor of the High Tower. He was a sickly boy born with a withered arm and twisted back. He was bedridden for much of his short life but had an insatiable thirst for knowledge about the world, so he turned to wise men, teachers, priests, healers, and singers, as well as wizards, alchemists and sorcerers. When Peremore died, his brother, King Urrigon, bequeathed a large tract of land beside the Honeywine to "Peremore's pets", that they might establish and continue in their quest for for knowldege. Thus the Citadel and the order of maesters was established.
