Sumner Crakehall was Lord of Crakehall and head of House Crakehall during the reign of King Aerys II Targaryen.


Ser Jaime Lannister squired for Sumner for four years;[2] Merrett Frey was also sent to Crakehall as a page and made a squire by Lord Crakehall.[3]

During the campaign against the outlaws of the Kingswood Brotherhood, Sumner had to ransom Merrett back after he was captured by Wenda. After receiving a hard blow to the head from a mace in the next battle, Merrett was no longer able to fight. Unwilling to grant knighthood to Merrett, Sumner kindly sent Merrett back to the Twins.[3] Jaime stopped Big Belly Ben from killing the Lord of Crakehall in battle.[4]

Sumner's fate is unknown. Lord Roland Crakehall led the house during the Sack of King's Landing.[2]


'Keep friends at your back and foes where you can see them,' Sumner Crakehall had once counseled him. Or had that been Father?[5]
