Nagga's Hill is located near the southern shore of Old Wyk, by Nagga's Cradle

Nagga's hill[1][2] or Nagga's Hill[3] is located on the isle of Old Wyk in the Iron Islands. The hill overlooks Nagga's Cradle, the body of water between Old Wyk and Great Wyk. Forty-four stone ribs of Nagga, a dead sea dragon, rise from the ground like large white trees as wide as a dromond's mast and twice as tall.[4]

Nagga's hill is the site of the Grey King's Hall, where the ironborn once chose their High Kings through kingsmoots.[5][3] Urron Greyiron made the kingship hereditary after slaying thirteen rock and salt kings and half a hundred priests of the Drowned God during one kingsmoot.[3]

After the death of Harren Hoare, King of the Isles and the Rivers, during Aegon's Conquest, priests crowned the priest-king Lodos beneath Nagga's bones.[6][7]

Balon Greyjoy, Lord of the Iron Islands, was crowned at Nagga's hill by Tarle the Thrice-Drowned during Greyjoy's Rebellion.[4]
