Kingship is the position and power of a king. There have been many kings in the Known World. In Westeros, kings inherit the title through male-preference primogeniture, save for the Kingdom of the Iron Islands which has revived the elective kingsmoot system. Each of the Seven Kingdoms had a king once, though Dorne started using the title "Prince of Dorne" after Lord Mors Martell married Queen Nymeria, and the new rulers chose to abandon the Andal customs in favor of those of the Rhoynar.

It is stated that Ghiscar had a king once, but the custom was not renewed until Daenerys Targaryen conquered Slaver's Bay. It is not known if the cities of the east have kings or not. In the Free Cities, rulers are elected through democratic and oligarchic systems, while in Braavos there are Sealords.

Recently, a new Corsair King has risen in the Basilisk Isles, and a new Pirate King has risen on the Stepstones.

"One king," agreed Davos. "One king means peace."
