Duncan the Tall as a mystery knight - by Marc Simonetti ©

A mystery knight is a contestant at a tournament that competes without revealing his identity. The contestant may or may not reveal his identity later. Mystery knights choose to conceal their names for a variety of reasons.

Description

When Meera Reed tells Bran Stark of the Knight of the Laughing Tree, who competed in the Tourney at Harrenhal, Bran recalls from his education: "Mystery knights would oft appear at tourneys, with helms concealing their faces, and shields that were either blank or bore some strange device."[1]

Examples

Besides the Knight of the Laughing Tree, other mystery knights include:
