House Baratheon of King's Landing
|Current Leader||Ser Bonifer Hasty|
The Holy Hundred is a group of one hundred soldiers pious in their faith to the Seven,[N 1] active during the War of the Five Kings. They are led by Ser Bonifer Hasty, known as Bonifer the Good, are well-disciplined, and have a spotless reputation.
A Clash of Kings
Ser Bonifer Hasty and the Holy Hundred join King Renly Baratheon at the beginning of the War of the Five Kings. Upon Renly's death at Storm's End, they switch loyalties to King Stannis Baratheon. The Holy Hundred lose fourteen men fighting on behalf of Stannis at the Battle of the Blackwater, bringing their number down to eighty-six. After the battle, Bonifer and his soldiers submit to King Joffrey Baratheon.
A Feast for Crows
After the Battle of the Blackwater, the Holy Hundred join Ser Jaime Lannister's force, which is sent into the Riverlands to bring an end to the fighting. They are assigned to garrison Harrenhal when Ser Bonifer is named castellan in Lord Petyr Baelish's absence.
Jaime thinks they should now be the Holy Eighty-Six, but recognizes them as being as well-disciplined as any soldiers in the Seven Kingdoms, and thinks they make a lovely sight as they wheel and prance their tall grey geldings. He recalls that Lord Petyr Baelish once quipped that Bonifer must have gelded the riders too, so spotless was their repute. Jaime also wonders about soldiers who are better known for their lovely horses than for the foes they had slain. As far as he knows, they did not disgrace themselves in the Battle of the Blackwater, but did not distinguish themselves either.
They pray well, I suppose, but can they fight?—Jaime Lannister, wondering about the martial prowess of the Holy Hundred
