Garth XI Gardener, also known as Garth the Painter, was a King of the Reach and head of House Gardener. He was the son and successor of Mern VI Gardener.[1]


While his father had done much to restore the Reach and Highgarden after the civil war instigated by House Peake and House Manderly, and the Dornish raiding that sacked Highgarden, Garth XI did the rest, taking such a terrible vengeance upon the Dornish that Lord Hightower said the Red Mountains had been green until Garth painted them with Dornish blood. For the remainder of his long reign, the king was known as Garth the Painter.[1]
