The High Septon was High Septon of the Faith of the Seven during the reign of Aegon I Targaryen. He was a maternal uncle of Ceryse Hightower.[1][2]


In 24 AC, when Queen Visenya Targaryen proposed a marriage between her son Maegor and her niece, Princess Rhaena, the High Septon strongly objected. Instead, he suggested his own niece, Lady Ceryse Hightower. Maegor and Ceryse were wed in 25 AC in the Starry Sept in Oldtown,[3][1][2] with the ceremony performed by the High Septon himself.[3][4]
