The Baneforts were petty First Men kings of the Age of Heroes, claiming descent from the Hooded Man. The last Hooded King was Morgon Banefort, whose thralls were defeated after twenty years of war by Loreon I Lannister, King of the Rock.
According to a semi-canon source, the Baneforts supported Tywin Lannister when he suppressed the Reyne-Tarbeck rebellion.
