History

Torgon was the eldest son of King Urragon III Greyiron. When his father died, Torgon had been away raiding along the Mander from his stronghold in Greyshield. His brothers sent him no word of the kingsmoot, hoping that one of them would be chosen. However, Urrathon IV Goodbrother was chosen instead and he had all of Torgon's brothers killed. When Torgon returned he denounced the kingsmoot as unlawful and revolted against Urrathon, with the aid of priests, lords and Urrathon's own captains.[1][2]

Although he was not chosen in a kingsmoot, Torgon ruled for forty years. He ruled fairly, but the Cape of Eagles was lost to House Mallister during his reign. He was succeeded by his son, Urragon IV Greyiron, who also became king without a kingsmoot.[2]
