The knight of the red beard



The Knight of the Laughing Tree was a mystery knight who fought at the tourney at Harrenhal in 281 AC . He defended the honor of a crannogman by challenging and defeating three knights whose squires had bullied the crannogman, demanding that they chastise the squires in order to ransom back their horses and armor.

The Knight of the Laughing Tree is so-called because of the blazon on his shield, a smiling weirwood . His true identity remains unknown. According to a semi-canon source, the bullied crannogman was Howland Reed . [1]

Most of what is known about the Knight of the Laughing Tree comes from a story told by Meera Reed to Bran Stark . As an introduction to her story, Meera suggests that this knight "might have been a crannogman ", to which Jojen Reed adds "or not". Jojen expects Bran to have heard this tale "a hundred times" from his father, Eddard Stark , but Bran denies any knowledge of the tale. He later explains that Old Nan was the one narrating stories to him, not his father. [2]

According to Meera's tale, a crannogman—most likely her own father, Howland Reed —attended the tourney at Harrenhal , finding there Aerys II Targaryen ("the king") and Rhaegar Targaryen ("the dragon prince"). With the Targaryens were the Kingsguard ("the White Swords"), there to welcome Jaime Lannister ("a new brother") into their ranks. Based on their known composition of the time, the knights present would be Lord Commander Gerold Hightower , Jonothor Darry , Arthur Dayne , Lewyn Martell , Barristan Selmy , and Oswell Whent . [2] [3]

The crannogman found himself bullied by three squires, none older than fifteen-years-old. He had already "grown to manhood", but the boys were all larger than him in size. His only offensive weapon, a three-pronged spear, was easily snatched away by his opponents. He was then thrown into the ground. His assailants repeatedly mocked him, shoved him, and kicked him. Help arrived in the person of Lyanna Stark ("the she-wolf"), who shouted indignantly that Howland was her father 's bannerman . She beat off his attackers with a tourney sword, scattering them away. [2] [3]

The mystery knight attracted unwanted attention. Robert Baratheon and Richard Lonmouth were determined to unmask him, while King Aerys was certain that the man was his enemy. [2] The king was convinced that the tree on the mystery knight's shield was laughing at him. He decided that the mystery knight was Ser Jaime Lannister , who had returned to the tourney, defying Aerys's order to protect Queen Rhaella and Prince Viserys in King's Landing . Aerys told his beliefs to every man who would listen, and furiously commanded his own knights to defeat the Knight of the Laughing Tree when the jousts resumed the next morning, to unmask and expose him. [5]

Socially, the Knight is by far the most prestigious person on the pilgrimage. He has fought in many battles and served his king nobly. (Readers should note that the Knight has not fought in secular battles; all his battles have been religious battles of some nature.) He is the very essence of chivalry, honor, and courage. Similarly, he is the epitome of gentility, a man who loves truth, freedom, and honor. Everyone in the pilgrimage looks up to and respects him.

The Red Knight , or the Lady of Strategy , was the Faerûnian deity of strategy and battle tactics and an exarch of Tempus . [3] Her dogma dictated the use of careful tactics in battle to achieve victory, under the belief that sound strategy was the best way to win a battle with the most favorable outcome. Her symbol was a red knight-errant chess piece with stars for eyes. [10]

Clerics of the Red Knight, or "holy strategists," prayed for their spells at night before sleeping to prepare for the next day. In addition to observing the holy days of the church of Tempus , the church of the Red Knight -- the "Red Fellowship" -- had two important holy days of its own. [11]

On Midwinter Day the Red Fellowship observed the Retreat. This solemn ceremony consisted of an assembly wherein the clergy discussed the previous year's campaigns. Strategies were discussed, battles analyzed, and the accumulated lore integrated into the church's teachings. [11]

On the 1st of Tarsakh , the clergy of the Red Knight held an annual festival called the Queen's Gambit. During this day-long extravaganza, the Red Fellowship unwound with feasting and gaming. Day-long tournaments of chess (also known as lanceboard, hence the Red Knight's second title, "Grandmaster of the Lanceboard") were held, with the tournament victors receiving recognition, titles of merit, promotions, and occasionally a gift from the temple armory.
