Ser Harrold Darke was a member of House Darke and a knight in Rhaenyra Targaryen's Queensguard.


Ser Harrold was likely from a minor branch of House Darklyn of Duskendale. He served as a squire to Ser Steffon Darklyn.

Harrold sided with the blacks during the Dance of the Dragons. When Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen fled King's Landing, Harrold managed to persuade Lady Meredyth Darklyn to allow the queen within her walls at Duskendale upon the condition that she would not remain for long.

After Rhaenyra sold her crown Harrold urged her to seek refuge with Lady Jeyne Arryn in the Vale. She refused his council and she and her party sailed for Dragonstone. Upon arriving at the island Ser Alfred Broome's men fell upon the queen's protectors and an axe split Harrold's head before his sword could clear its scabbard. Prince Aegon picked up Harrold's sword to defend his mother, but Alfred knocked it away.[1]
