Lord of Starpike[1][2][3][4][5][6] is a title held by the head of House Peake, the ruler of Starpike in the Reach.[7]


Kingdom of the Reach

House Peake boast of several legendaries Lords of Starpike, such as: Meryn the Scribe, Yrma of the Golden Bowl, Eddison the Elder, Eddison the Younger, and Emerick the Avenger.[3]

A Lord Peake accepted the judgment of King Gwayne III Gardener over a quarrel he had with Lord Manderly of Dunstonbury.[8]

Another Lord Peake married one daughter of King Garth X Gardener while Lord Manderly married the other one. Both lords hoped to see their wives succeed their father as he did not father any sons. After a decade of war, a distant cousin of the late Garth ascended the throne as King Mern VI Gardener thanks to Ser Osmund Tyrell, the High Steward of Highgarden.[9]

Lord Lorimar Peake drove the Manderlys into exile from the Reach upon the behest of King Perceon III Gardener. Lorimar was rewarded the Manderly castle, Dunstonbury,[10] as well as a marriage between his daughter with Perceon's son, Prince Gwayne.[3]

Targaryen Era

Lord Armen Peake and his sons perished upon the Field of Fire.[3]

During the Faith Militant uprising, Lord Peake remained loyal to King Maegor I Targaryen. His son and heir was killed by Warrior's Sons.[11]

Lord Uther Peake ruled during the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen and married one of Queen Alysanne's companions, Lady Prunella Celtigar.[1]

Lord Peake supported Prince Viserys's claim to the Iron Throne at the Great Council of 101 AC. Three decades later, his son, Lord Unwin, supported Viserys's son, King Aegon II Targaryen in the Dance of the Dragons. Unwin took command of the green army from the Reach after the Second Battle of Tumbleton and led its retreat.[12]

After the death of Lord Corlys Velaryon, Lord Unwin was given a position as one of King Aegon III Targaryen's regents. He eventually became Protector of the Realm and Hand of the King, which he later resigned when the king would not marry his daughter, Myrielle Peake.[13][3]

Lord Gormon Peake was a fierce supporter of Daemon I Blackfyre and was considered one of the finest knights during the reign of King Daeron II Targaryen. After the Peakes chose the side of House Blackfyre in the failed First Blackfyre Rebellion, they had two of their castles stripped from them, leaving them only Starpike.[5] Gormon was a part of Daemon II Blackfyre's entourage at the Whitewalls wedding tourney in 212 AC, and was subsequently executed for treason.[14][5]

In 233 AC, Lord Peake rose against the Iron Throne launching the Peake Uprising.[15]
