The Vulture King was the name taken by a number of outlaws who rose against the Iron Throne, using the Red Mountains as their base. According to a semi-canon source, one Vulture King may have been a Blackmont.[1]


An earlier Vulture King was a Dornishman who rose against Aenys I Targaryen. He was defeated through the Vulture Hunt.[2]

A later Vulture King rose against Daeron II Targaryen, but was eventually defeated by Lords Caron and Dondarrion.[3]

Gerris Drinkwater once led six Dornishmen, including Prince Quentyn Martell, to find the lair of a Vulture King.[4]
