The Rogare Bank was a bank operated by House Rogare in the Free City of Lys.

History

During the Lysene Spring period of the regency of Aegon III, when Lady Larra Rogare was wed to Prince Viserys Targaryen, the Rogare Bank was even more powerful than the Iron Bank of Braavos.[1] The Rogares declined after the deaths of Lysandro the Magnificent, the First Magister for Life, and his brother, Drazenko, however.[2] The bank failed after Lysaro Rogare's embezzlement and a bank run, causing massive losses to many that had entrusted their wealth to it. House Hightower founded the Bank of Oldtown after the collapse.[3]
