Tower of Dread

From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Jump to: navigation, search

The Tower of Dread is one of Harrenhal's major towers. Its original name was lost with the death of Harren the Black, the builder of Harrenhal, in the burning of Harrenhal during Aegon's Conquest. It has since been renamed the Tower of Dread.[1]

The sickly and impoverished Lord Maegor Towers only utilized one of Harrenhal's five towers, the Tower of Dread. Here he lived with his household of a cook and three men-at-arms until his death in 61 AC.[2]
