Lodos as depicted in Game of Thrones: Histories & Lore.
|In 2 AC
Harren Hoare, King of the Isles and the Rivers, was killed during the burning of Harrenhal. Although Qhorin Volmark insisted he was Harren's heir, Lodos rejected the claim. A barefoot Lodos was crowned King of the Iron Islands with a driftwood crown by twoscore priests gathered at Nagga's Bones on Old Wyk.
During the invasion of the Iron Islands by King Aegon I Targaryen to put down several rebellious would-be kings, Lodos turned to his god and called on the krakens of the deep to drag down Aegon's warships. When the beasts failed to appear, Lodos filled his robes with stones and walked into the sea to "take counsel" with his claimed father, the Drowned God. Thousands followed Lodos. Their corpses would wash up on the shores for years to come, except for Lodos's own body.
