Lord Vickon Greyjoy of Pyke was the first Lord of the Iron Islands after Aegon's Conquest.[2]

History

Vickon Greyjoy was a famous captain who could trace his descent back to the Grey King. In 2 AC, King Aegon I Targaryen allowed the lords on the Iron Islands to choose their own lord paramount. They elected Vickon, the Lord Reaper of Pyke.[1]

From the Seastone Chair, Vickon commanded that the practice of reaving be confined to distant waters, forbidding his men to reave the shores of the Seven Kingdoms. He also angered the priests of the Drowned God and many pious lords, when he allowed the septons and septas of the Faith of the Seven to return to the Iron Islands. Vickon paid them no heed, remaining his loyalty to King Aegon I. He counselled his son, Goren, that only a fool would rise against King Aegon and his dragons.[1]

Vickon died in 33 AC and was succeeded by his son Goren.[1]
