Ser Osmund Strong was a knight from House Strong and Hand of the King to Aegon I Targaryen.[1]

History

Ser Osmund was named Hand by King Aegon I Targaryen, following the death in office of Lord Alton Celtigar in 17 AC.[2]

Osmund and Grand Maester Gawen were charged with the overseeing and raising of the walls around King's Landing.[1] Work on the walls commenced in 20 AC and continued until 26 AC.[3]

In 29 AC and 30 AC, Ser Osmund and Lord Aethan Velaryon, lord admiral and master of ships, led campaigns in the Stepstones to root out the Lysene pirate king Sargoso Saan. They were accompanied by Prince Maegor Targaryen.[4]

He died in office in 34 AC, and was replaced as Hand by Lord Alyn Stokeworth.[4]
