Ser Harwin Strong is the heir of Crakehall in the Westerlands and the sworn sword of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. The two grew close after meeting at a tourney and he entered her service soon afterward. Eventually, Harwin also became her lover. Though there are rumors that he is, in fact, the father of some of her children, this is untrue as the two were always careful to prevent such an eventuality. Further, Ser Harwin is also the lover of both Laenor Velaryon and Aemon Targaryen; Rhaenyra's husbands. The four of them are very close and Ser Harwin is rarely seen without them.
