The Vulture King was a Dornishman outlaw who gathered thousands of followers to rise against King Aenys I Targaryen. He scored a number of early victories against the Marcher lords, as Princess Deria Martell largely ignored the insurrection, leading to his support swelling up to nearly thirty thousand strong. After he divided his host, the former Hand of the King, Lord Orys Baratheon along with the Marcher lords - among them Savage Sam Tarly - managed to hunt down the rebels during the "Vulture Hunt".[1]
