Quenton Hightower was a head of House Hightower and Lord of the Hightower.


When the grey plague hit Oldtown when Pycelle was a boy, Lord Quenton had the city gates closed, burned every ship in the port, and ordered that anyone trying to flee was to be killed. Once the plague burned itself out, Quenton rescinded those orders. On the day he did so, however, he and his young son were pulled from their horses by the survivors and had their throats slit.[1]
