"Your Grace, Your Grace, my lords, my ladies, you stand here in the sight of gods and men to witness the union of man and wife. One flesh, one heart, one soul... now and forever!"
―The High Septon[src]

The High Septon is a recurring character in the third, fourth, and fifth seasons. He is played by guest star Paul Bentley and debuts in "Second Sons".

"High Septon" is the title given to the head of the Faith of the Seven, the dominant religion of the Seven Kingdoms. It is a position of supreme authority within the Faith, but the holder has little power outside of the religion. This High Septon was appointed after his predecessor was killed in the riots of King's Landing.

BiographyEdit

Season 2Edit

This High Septon was appointed after his predecessor was killed in the riots of King's Landing.[1] Pycelle reports consulting the High Septon about King Joffrey Baratheon setting aside his betrothal to Sansa Stark.[2]

Season 3Edit

The High Septon talks about an orphanage in Flea Bottom to Margaery Tyrell. Margaery then stops by the orphanage while travelling from a sept to the Red Keep to talk with the orphans and give them some toys, surprising her betrothed Joffrey Baratheon.[3]

The High Septon conducts the wedding of Tyrion Lannister and Sansa Stark at the Great Sept of Baelor.[4]

Season 4Edit

The High Septon conducts the marriage of Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell.[5]

He is present in the Great Sept of Baelor after King Joffrey's funneral, when Cersei Lannister, Tommen Baratheon and Tywin Lannister are privately mourning the death of the King before his body. After Tywin takes Tommen away, Jaime Lannister arrives and asks the High Septon to give the Queen a moment alone with her dead son, prompting them all to leave. The High Septon quickly complies and leads the attendant servants out of the Sept.[6]

During Tommen's coronation in the Throne Room, the High Septon places the crown upon his head, officially announcing him as the new King.[7]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the preceding High Septon was killed in the riot of King's Landing. Tyrion influences the Most Devout to choose this High Septon to replace him. Tyrion scornfully describes the new High Septon as "a trained seal who barks prettily on command".

When a new High Septon assumes office, he renounces his given name and ever after becomes known simply as "the High Septon", so the name of this particular High Septon, like those of his predecessors, is never revealed.
