Morgil Hastwyck was a knight from House Hastwyck who lived during the reign of King Aegon IV Targaryen.[2]

History

Ser Morgil is renowned for slandering Queen Naerys Targaryen and being killed by her brother, Prince Aemon the Dragonknight, in trial by combat.[3][2] According to Grand Maester Kaeth's Lives of Four Kings, these accusations were instigated by Aegon IV himself, who was at the time quarreling with his son and heir, Prince Daeron.[2]

Quotes

Well, the singers embroider everything, but there was a Ser Morgil and he did accuse Naerys of various things... probably adultery and treason with Aemon, but I haven't nailed all that down yet....[4]

Why, every child in Westeros knows how Prince Aemon the Dragonknight championed his sister Queen Naerys against Ser Morghil's accusations.[1]
