The brotherhood without banners also call themselves "King's Men", although they support King Robert 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] Melisandre's strange faith, aggressive council, and mysterious powers made her unpopular among some of Stannis's men. Therefore, the distinction is usually made between this group and those who converted to the faith of R'hllor and follow Selyse closely. Those are often called Queen's Men. At the Merman's Court, Davos tells lord Manderly that the King's Men outnumber the Queen's Men in Stannis' host.[2]
