Izembaro, also called the King of the Mummers and Izembaro the Great, is a mummer from Braavos. He is the founder and leader of the group of mummers at The Gate.[1]


A fat mummer, Izembaro only wants to portray kings in his plays lately. Izembaro gives his troupe advice as to how to please the Gate's crowd during their performances. These “wisdoms” include "You have to please the pit" and "Always give them something they haven't seen before".[1]

Izembaro and his group of mummers portray a new play written by Phario Forel, named The Bloody Hand. Izembaro will play the role of King Robert Baratheon in this play. He loses his crown an hour before the show starts, and after Arya has retrieved it for him from the privy where he had left it, he loses his boar spear.[1]
