King of Westeros

From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Jump to: navigation, search

King of Westeros is the self-styled title of Stannis Baratheon.[1] In contrast, his elder brother, Robert I Baratheon, styled himself King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men and Lord of the Seven Kingdoms,[2] phrasing utilized by his Targaryen predecessors since the reign of Aegon I Targaryen.[3] The phrase "king of Westeros" is sometimes used informally to describe the king on the Iron Throne.

The phrasing indicates that Stannis considers himself the rightful ruler of the entire continent of Westeros, not just the Seven Kingdoms but including the lands beyond the Wall.
