King Tristifer IV Mudd, also known as the Hammer of Justice, was the fourth King of the Rivers and the Hills to bear that name. His crypt lies among the ruins of Oldstones.[1]


He ruled from the Trident to the Neck in the era where the First Men were being attacked and overrun by the Andal invasion. He fought one hundred battles, winning ninety-nine and losing one. The one battle he lost was his last, where seven Andal kings attacked simultaneously. He raised the castle that became known as Oldstones, where it was the strongest in Westeros at the time of its construction. He was succeeded by his son, Tristifer V Mudd.[2]


His appearance can only be gleaned from the description of his tomb. He wore a beard and bore a warhammer.[3]


“Old Tristifer don’t mind my bony arse. The Hammer of Justice, they called him. Been a long while since he heard any new songs.” [4]
