King of the Trident and King of the Rivers and the Hills were titles used by various river kings from the riverlands prior to the Aegon's Conquest. The titles refer to the numerous rivers in the kingdom, such as the Trident with its three forks and the Blackwater Rush. The hills between the riverlands and the westerlands were also historically contested by river kings and Kings of the Rock.[1]

History

Numerous houses ruled as First Men river kings, including Houses Fisher, Blackwood, Bracken, and Mudd.[2][3] The Mudds ruled from the Trident to the Neck and reigned as kings for a thousand years before the Andal invasion.[4]

After the Andals divided the riverlands amongst themselves, many petty lords named themselves river king, the most successful of them being the Justman and Teague dynasties.[5] The Hooks were river kings of old, although it is unknown if they were First Men or Andals.[6] The Teagues, the last of the native river kings, were eventually extinguished in the Battle of Six Kings, and the riverlands passed first to the Storm Kings from House Durrandon and then the Kings of the Isles and the Rivers from House Hoare.[2]

During his conquest, Aegon the Conqueror created the title of Lord Paramount of the Trident for the liege lord of the riverlands within the Seven Kingdoms.[6]

Recent Events
