Simon Toyne was the leader of the Kingswood Brotherhood, an outlaw organization that operated during the reign of Aerys II Targaryen.

History

Simon was a member of House Toyne, a family that had fallen into disgrace after altercations with House Targaryen. Under Simon's leadership, the Kingswood Brotherhood achieved no small measure of infamy as they kidnapped various nobles and evaded capture. At one point Simon entered the tourney at Storm's End as a mystery knight where he was unhorsed by Rhaegar Targaryen. Ultimately, Simon was killed by Ser Barristan Selmy after the Kingsguard had been sent to crush the Brotherhood.[2]
