Leygood was the head[N 1] of House Leygood during the Dance of the Dragons.[1]

History

At the start of the Dance of the Dragons, Leygood declared for King Aegon II Targaryen and the greens. Like the rest of the lords of the Reach who supported the greens, he joined the host of Lord Ormund Hightower on his march to King's Landing.[2]

After the First Battle of Tumbleton and the death of Lord Ormund, the army was paralyzed in the city without a clear commander and without knowing with certainty the intentions of the Two Betrayers, Hugh Hammer and Ulf White. One night, Leygood and twelve other lords and landed knights of the Reach assembled at an inn, the Bloody Caltrops, to conspire against Hugh and Ulf. The Second Battle of Tumbleton broke out before the Caltrops could carry out their plans, however.[3] Leygood and most of his companions died during the battle.[1]

Years later, during the regency of King Aegon III Targaryen, Lord Unwin Peake, a fellow Caltrops, assumed the position of Hand of the King and appointed Leygood's son, Ser Lucas, as the new Commander of the City Watch of King's Landing.[1]

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 Leygood was a member of the Caltrops, a group of conspirators only composed of lords and landed knights from the Reach (Fire & Blood, The Dying of the Dragons: Rhaenyra Overthrown).
