Erich I Greyiron
|Erich I Greyiron|
|Full name||Erich I Greyiron|
|Title||High King of the Iron Islands|
|Alias||Erich the Ugly|
|Book||The World of Ice & Fire (mentioned)|
After the death of his father, Urras Greyiron, Erich seized his driftwood crown and proclaimed himself High King of the Iron Islands. However, the priest Galon Whitestaff, despite being half-blind and feeble, arose in fury and declared Erich an unlawful king, as he had not been chosen at a kingsmoot. He assembled all ironborn "captains and kings" to Old Wyk and Erich was quickly unmade and condemned to death. He avoided this fate by casting his father's crown to the sea, a sign of his submission to the Drowned God. In his place, the kingsmoot raised Regnar Drumm.
