The High Septon was High Septon of the Faith of the Seven during the reign of King Aerys II Targaryen.[1]

History

After the death of his son, Prince Jaehaerys, King Aerys fasted for a fortnight and made a walk of repentance across King's Landing to the Great Sept of Baelor, where he prayed with the High Septon. From that point on, Aerys vowed to remain faithful to his sister-wife, Queen Rhaella. According the chronicles, Aerys did respect his vow and the following year, Rhaella gave birth to Prince Viserys.[1]
