Erreg, known as Erreg the Kinslayer, was a legendary Andal king.

History

According to song, King Erreg attacked High Heart, a sacred place to the children of the forest of the riverlands, killed all the children, and cut down the weirwood trees. It is believed by the smallfolk that High Heart is still haunted by the dead children.[1]

Archmaester Perestan suggests in A Consideration of History that "Erreg" was not a given name but corruption of an Andal title. Perestan suggests this unnamed chieftain who attacked High Heart did so on behalf on a river king's rival.[2]
