Wat the Hewer was a leader of the Poor Fellows during the Faith Militant uprising.[1]


Wat was described as a giant on account of his large size and prowess. He fought with an axe.[1]


During the Faith Militant uprising, Wat the Hewer led Poor Fellows out of the Reach on a march towards King's Landing. In the battle at Stonebridge he killed half a dozen knights, including Lord Meadows, the commander of King Maegor I Targaryen's army, Wat also faced Myles Smallwood in single combat with both men surviving.[3] Wat was taken alive and delivered to King's Landing in chains.[1][2]

Maegor cut off Wat's limbs with his own axe, then commanded his maesters to keep Wat alive so he could attend the king's wedding to Tyanna of the Tower. When Maegor later took Tyanna as his third wife on Rhaenys's Hill, surrounded by the remains of the Warrior's Sons who had died there when Maegor burned down the Sept of Remembrance, Wat was present as a witness.[1]
