"Tristan Mudd, Mad Marq Rankenfell, Robin Hill. Each nearly destroyed us with their foolishness."
―Ser Alliser Thorne[src]

Marq Rankenfell, known to history as "Mad Marq Rankenfell," was a Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.

The Watch nearly collapsed under his leadership, and history remembers him as one of the worst Lord Commanders the Black Brothers ever had - along with the likes of Tristan Mudd and Robin Hill - and is remembered as "Mad Marq Rankenfell".[1]
