"The Father reached his hand into the heavens and pulled down seven stars, and one by one he set them on the brow of Hugor of the Hill - to make a glowing crown. The Maiden brought him forth a girl as supple as willow, with eyes like deep pools, and Hugor declared that he would have her for his bride. So the Mother made her fertile, and the Crone foretold that she would bear the king four-and-forty mighty sons. The Warrior gave strength to their arms, whilst the Smith wrought for each a suit of iron plates."
―The High Sparrow[src]

Hugor of the Hill was the legendary first king of the Andals.

Biography

HL5 Seven Pointed Star the Seven with the Mother

The Seven crown Hugor and present him with his bride.

According to legend, in ancient times the Seven gods walked the earth among men, and they blessed Hugor of the Hill, king of the Andals. The Father pulled down seven stars from the heavens and set them upon the brow of Hugor to make a glowing crown. The Maiden then brought him a girl as supple as willow, with eyes like deep pools, whom Hugor declared he would take as his bride. The Mother made her fertile, and the Crone foretold that she would give him forty-four mighty sons. The Warrior gave strength to their arms, and the Smith made a suit of iron plates for both of them.[1] The gods crowned him as King of the Andals, and promised him that his people would one day rule great kingdoms in a foreign continent.[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Hugor's story is the same. It is unclear exactly when he is supposed to have lived, though apparently it was some time before the Andal Invasion began (the histories don't mention him in Westeros itself). Due to his legendary status it is unknown if a single king named "Hugor" ever truly existed (much less if he actually met gods), just as among the First Men it is unclear if figures such as Durran Godsgrief ever truly lived and warred against gods of the sea and sky.

While Tyrion Lannister is travelling away from Westeros, one of the assumed names he uses is Hugor Hill - "Hill" being the bastard surname used in the Westerlands. Tyrion uses this name when he is traveling east from Pentos through Andalos - thinking to himself on how the legendary Hugor allegedly lived there, and pondering how his own Andal ancestors once walked the same lands he is now crossing through.
