Harmund II Hoare, known as Harmund the Haggler, was a King of the Iron Islands from House Hoare. The Hoare kings of his era were opposed by the priests of the Drowned God because of their support for the Faith of the Seven, discouraging of reaving, and promotion of trade.[1]


Harmund spent his youth as a ward of House Lannister of Casterly Rock. A great traveler, Harmund II is said to have been the first iron king to visit mainland Westeros in peace. Once king, he married Lady Lelia Lannister, the daughter of the King of the Rock. He also visited Highgarden and Oldtown to discuss trade.[1]

Harmund followed both the Drowned God and the Faith of the Seven. He spoke of the "Eight Gods" and believed that the Drowned God was an aspect of the Stranger, which angered many of the ironborn. His children were raised in the Faith.[1]
