- "To steward his monument to vanity, Baelor summoned the High Septon of the Faith from his ancient seat in Oldtown and gifted him with ornate robes and a crown of crystal and gold, and like a fool the High Septon put on his lord's motley and danced at his lord's table, and with each passing year the High Septons fell ever lower.

The High Septon left the Starry Sept in Oldtown on the orders of King Baelor Targaryen to steward the Great Sept of Baelor. Baelor dressed him in ornate robes and a crown of crystal and gold, and the High Septon danced at the king's table. Following his death, Baelor chose increasingly unqualified successors, including a simple-minded stonemason and an eight-year-old boy.
