Vulture King
Culture Dornishmen

The third Vulture King was a Dornish rebel active during the Dance of the Dragons.


Borros Baratheon, Lord of Storm's End, gathered six thousand men in support of King Aegon II Targaryen during the Dance of the Dragons. Instead of marching against Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen and her dragons, however, Borros led his host south into the Red Mountains to retaliate for incursions from Dorne.[1]

Borros was victorious in his campaign against the Vulture King,[2] during which Ser Steffon Connington also proved his valor.[3] Whether the rebel was related by blood to other "Vulture Kings" is unknown.[4]
