Ser Walton Towers was one of King Maegor I Targaryen's best knights. He became Lord of Harrenhal and the founder of House Towers of Harrenhal.

History

After King Maegor I Targaryen wiped out House Harroway in 44 AC, he decreed that the strongest of his knights would have Harrenhal, though not the lands House Harroway held separatly from Harrenhall, which he gave to others.[1] Walton was one of twenty-three knights who fought in the blood-soaked streets of Lord Harroway's Town for the prize. Though gravely wounded in the melee, Walton emerged victorious and was granted Harrenhal. He died within a fortnight from the wounds he had taken in gaining his prize, and Harrenhal subsequently passed to Walton's eldest son.[1] Walton's line became extinct a generation later, after which Harrenhal was given to House Strong.[2]
