The Griffin King is an unseen character in Game of Thrones. He is deceased when the series begins and has only appeared in the Complete Guide to Westeros and Histories & Lore featurettes. He was the last of the Mountain Kings, a First Men dynasty that ruled the Vale since the coming of men to Westeros. He lived at the end of the Age of Heroes and the beginning of the Andal invasion of Westeros.


Artys vs Griffin King

According to legend, the Griffin King battled Ser Artys Arryn, an Andal known as the Winged Knight, and was defeated. With the death of the Griffin King, the line of the Mountain Kings was extinguished.[1][2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire books, the Griffin King is said to have dueled the Winged Knight atop a mountain known as the Giant's Lance. As much of Westeros' old history, this story may be a product of myth and confusion.
