Torgen Oakheart was the Lord of Old Oak and the head of House Oakheart during the reign of King Maegor I Targaryen and the beginning of the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[1]

History

In 48 AC, Lord Torgen and Lord Rickard Rowan marched with Septon Moon against the increasingly brutal King Maegor I Targaryen, defending the septon and his followers when they camped beneath the walls of Oldtown.[2] After the death of Maegor the Cruel, Moon continued to denounce the Targaryens and the High Septon. Lord Donnel Hightower refused to take up arms against Moon's followers, with many claiming the real reason was not wishing to offer battle to Lords Oakheart and Rowan. However, the lords were reluctant to offer their armies to the septon when he planned to attack Oldtown itself, with Torgen decamping a day after Rickard. Moon was later assassinated with the guards, ending his uprising.[3]

Torgen attended the Golden Wedding in 49 AC, where King Jaehaerys I Targaryen entertained lords in the intimacy of his solar, encouraging them to speak freely and share their views on the problems of the Seven Kingdoms and how they might best be overcome. Lord Oakheart thought the king was grim.[1]

In 58 AC, Torgen was present in King's Landing to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Jaehaerys coming to the Iron Throne.[4]
