Urrigon Hightower was a King of the High Tower and head of House Hightower. He was the eldest son and the successor of Uthor of the High Tower, as well as the brother of Peremore Hightower.
Urrigon's brother Peremore had an insatiable thirst for knowledge and therefore surrounded himself with scholars, healers, priests and sorcerers. After Peremore died, King Urrigon granted a tract of land beside the Honeywine to "Peremore's pets" so they might establish and continue their quest for knowledge. Thus the Citadel was established and the Order of Maesters was born.
