Lord Hayford, by oznerol
|Predecessor||Ambrose Butterwell (Hand of the King)|
|Died||In 196 AC, the Redgrass Field|
A noted loyalist to the Targaryens, Lord Hayford was made Hand of the King shortly before the battle at the Redgrass Field during the First Blackfyre Rebellion, replacing Lord Ambrose Butterwell, who had done such a dismal job that many questioned his loyalty. Lord Hayford, however, had been stalwart from the first.
Amongst the knights fighting in the battle of the Redgrass Field in 196 AC underneath the Hayford banner was Ser Arlan of Pennytree, with his squire and nephew, Roger. Lord Gormon Peake killed both Lord Hayford and Roger in the battle.
