Rolland Rivers is a travelling bard most well known for his song "Lions at the Lion's Gate".


Rolland was born to a whore of Fairmarket and most probably a travelling merchant, although the bastard claims otherwise. Since an early age, Rolland pursued a life of music. He stole his first harp from a visiting bard.

His mother died during his youth and afterwards, Rolland joined a mummer troupe who journeyed place to place entertaining noblefolk and lowborn alike. After sometime, he left the troupe to become freelance.

Since then, Rolland has travelled across the realm, being employed by patrons to commemorate events or entertain at weddings, feasts and the like. He also takes a fancy to tourneys, attending both the one at Harrenhal and the Vale. He spreads his tales wherever he goes, often crafting stories of being the bastard of notable Lords.
