In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Qhorwyn greatly valued his wealth and shrewdly avoided war in order to maintain it. In an effort to discourage his enemies from rising against him he tripled the size of his fleet and ordered the creation of additional weaponry. His eldest son died from greyscale and his second son Harlan was killed by a fall from a horse, with his third son Harwyn succeeding when he died and conquering the Riverlands with his father's strengthened military.
