Rogar Baratheon was Lord of Storm's End and head of House Baratheon. He was Lord Orys Baratheon’s grandson.

History

Lord Rogar was the first great lord to openly proclaim for Prince Jaehaerys against his uncle, Maegor I Targaryen. In 48 ᴀᴄ at Storm's End, Rogar proclaimed Jaehaerys to be the lawful king of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men. In return, Jaehaerys named Rogar the Protector of the Realm and the Hand of the King.[1][2][3]

Twenty-three days after the mysterious death of King Maegor I, Rogar arrived at King's Landing at the head of a large host, accompanying Dowager Queen Alyssa Velaryon, to meet up with Prince Jaehaerys, Princess Rhaena, and Princess Alysanne, who had arrived a fortnight earlier.[1]

During the remainder of King Jaehaerys' minority Rogar shared the rule of the realm with Dowager Queen Alyssa. Half a year after Jaehaerys came to rule on his own, Rogar and Alyssa were wed.[1][3] From this marriage two children were born: Boremund and Jocelyn.[3][4]

Behind the Scenes

In published works, Rogar is called both "Rogar Baratheon" and "Robar Baratheon". In The World of Ice & Fire, the name "Robar" is consistently used, while the character is called "Rogar" on some occasions in The Sons of the Dragon and (at least in the printed version) "Robar" on others. According to Elio Garcia, one of the co-authors of The World of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin used both names interchangeably in the original manuscript. Even though "Rogar" was used more frequently in the manuscript, for The World of Ice & Fire, the choice was made to use "Robar" as it was the name Martin wrote down towards the end of the manuscript.[5] As revealed by Garcia in July 2018, Martin started out in the manuscript with "Rogar", at one point switched to "Robar", and later on decided he preferred "Rogar" after all.[6]
