Do we actually know that you need to be a knight to be a sworn sword? Sandor Clegane is described as Joffrey's 'sworn shield', isn't he?
- You're right. At one point Robert is described as being surrounded by his "knights and sworn swords" or something of the sort, and Ser Jorah is called sworn sword to Viserys at another point. Sworn swords seem to include lnadless knights and other warriors -- presumably a freerider who took vows of service and became a retainer would also be considered a sworn sword. I've corrected the text to try and make this plain. Also, remember to sign your posts by using (~~~~), --~~~~, or by clicking the scribbly-looking button in the edit toolbar, the third from the right. --Ran 07:27, 25 April 2007 (CDT)

Ser Perkin the Flea
While I realize that it was probably very unusual and scandalous, the situation involving Ser Perkin the Flea and his squire (briefly knighted himself) Tristayne Truefyre probably deserves a mention, as a remarkable exception at least. LuisDantas 12:35, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
