History

Togarion Bar Emmon was an Andal warlord who founded a small kingdom north of the Blackwater Rush during the Andal invasion, but he was opposed by the more powerful Darklyns of Duskendale. Togarion married the daughter of King Josua Massey of Stonedance, himself a rival to the Storm King Qarlton II Durrandon, and the Bar Emmons abandoned the Blackwater for Massey's Hook. Although Qarlton defeated Josua, Togarion drove the stormlanders from Stonedance, built Sharp Point as the new seat for House Bar Emmon, and established a kingdom on Massey's Hook with the son of Josua as a puppet. The region was eventually recovered by the stormlands, however.[3][3]

Prior to the War of Conquest, House Bar Emmon was sworn to House Durrandon, the Storm Kings from Storm's End, but had closer ties to House Targaryen of nearby Dragonstone. When Aegon the Conqueror launched his invasion of Westeros, the Bar Emmons supported him instead of the Storm King, Argilac the Arrogant. With the creation of the crownlands after the Conquest, the Bar Emmons became sworn to Dragonstone, instead of House Baratheon of Storm's End, who had replaced the Durrandons.[4]

Lord Bar Emmon was a member of Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen's black council during the Dance of the Dragons.[5]
