Ser Hobert Hightower was a knight from House Hightower.[1]

Character and Appearance

Hobert was "as stout as he was slow." He had never distinguished himself until late in life.[1]


Hobert fought in the Dance of the Dragons on the side of his kin, King Aegon II Targaryen. He was cousin to Lord Ormund Hightower, who was killed in the Battle of Tumbleton. At the age of 60, Hobert was given command of Ormund's army of because he was the most senior Hightower remaining in the green host. Until then he was only in charge of the baggage train. Prince Daeron Targaryen ordered Hobert to stop the sack of Tumbleton, but Horbert failed miserably.

Along with Lord Unwin Peake, Horbert was a leader of the Caltrops who conspired to kill the Two Betrayers. After the Second Battle of Tumbleton, he drank with Ulf the White. Hobert knew the wine was poisoned, but chose to drink anyway, rather than betray his allies. They both died moments later.[1]


History has little good to say about Ser Hobert Hightower, but no man can question the manner of his death. Rather than betray his fellow Caltrops, he let the squire fill his cup, drank deep, and asked for more.[1]
