During the Andal invasion, King Robar II Royce formed an alliance of First Men Houses from the Vale to repel the Andals. He gained the Hunters as allies after he bested Lord Hunter at an archery contest. Robar's forces were defeated in the Battle of the Seven Stars, however, and the Hunters submitted to Artys I Arryn, the new King of Mountain and Vale.[6]

Lord Alec Hunter travelled to King's Landing in 49 AC to assist to the wedding of Lord Rogar Baratheon and Lady Alyssa Velaryon.[7]

Lord Eon Hunter was present at the Tourney at Harrenhal in 281 AC.[8]
