Erich I Greyiron, known as Erich the Ugly, was a High King of the Iron Islands from House Greyiron. He was the son of Urras Greyiron, the first High King.

History

After the death of his father, Urras Greyiron, Erich seized his driftwood crown and proclaimed himself High King of the Iron Islands. However, the priest Galon Whitestaff, despite being half-blind and feeble, arose in fury and declared Erich an unlawful king, as he had not been chosen at a kingsmoot. He assembled all ironborn "captains and kings" to Old Wyk and Erich was quickly unmade and condemned to death. He avoided this fate by casting his father's crown to the sea, a sign of his submission to the Drowned God. In his place, the kingsmoot raised Regnar Drumm.[1]
