Wat the Tanner
|Wat the Tanner
When riots broke out in King's Landing in 130 AC, Wat was among the mob that stormed the manse of Lord Bartimos Celtigar, the despised master of coin. After Bartimos was captured and tortured, Wat declared to Bartimos that he had not paid the "cock tax" and thus his manhood was forfeit. Wat later rode through the streets upon a stolen horse, displaying Lord Bartimos's severed head and genitals to the crowds and declaring an end to all taxes. Due to his profession, he was dubbed Wat the Tanner by historians.
