The brotherhood without banners also call themselves "king's men", although they support King Robert I Baratheon.

The king's men are members of Stannis Baratheon's court that hold to their worship of the Seven even after the red priestess, Melisandre, brought the faith of R'hllor to Dragonstone and converted Queen Selyse.[1]
