Robar Baratheon was Lord of Storm's End and head of House Baratheon. He was Lord Orys Baratheon’s grandson.


Lord Robar was the first great lord to openly proclaim for Prince Jaehaerys against his uncle, Maegor the Cruel. For his loyalty and courage, he was named Protector of the Realm and Hand of the King following Maegor’s strange death upon the Iron Throne.

During the remainder of King Jaehaerys’ minority, Lord Robar shared the rule of the realm with the king’s mother, the Dowager Queen Alyssa Velaryon. Half a year after Jaehaerys came to rule on his own, Robar and Alyssa were wed. Their marriage would yield two children: Boremund and Jocelyn.[1][2]


It is unclear if the character's name is "Robar" or "Rogar". According to Elio Garcia, Martin's notes for The World of Ice and Fire used both interchangeably, so they decided to use "Robar" in the print version in 2014. The short story The Sons of the Dragon in 2017, however, consistently gives his name as "Rogar": Elio suspects that editor Gardner Dozois was faced with the same choice they were, from the same inconsistent notes, but he went with "Rogar" instead. Elio advised to keep using "Robar" (his choice) until proven otherwise, and he'll ask Martin for further confirmation.[3]
