History

According to the Seven-Pointed Star, King Hugor is a major part of the Faith of the Seven. He was supposedly crowned by the Father himself who pulled down seven stars to make his crown. The Maid brought forth a girl supple as a willow with eyes like deep blue pools that Hugor took as his first wife. The Mother made her fertile, and she bore him forty-four mighty sons as foretold by the Crone. The Warrior gave each son strength of arms and the Smith wrought each a suit of iron plate. His realm was extensive, spreading from the hills of northern Andalos to the southern marches, now called the Flatlands, in the south.[2] The Seven also promised him and his descendants great kingdoms in a foreign land.[1]

Hugor of the Hill may also be the Andal hero whom Pentoshi singers call Hukko.[1]

Some Kings of Mountain and Vale from House Arryn claimed descent from Hugor.[3]
