"When the ironborn became a nuisance, my ancestor sailed to the Iron Islands and returned with a hundred ironborn hostages, promising to hang one from the rock every time the ironborn dared raid our shores. The ironborn stayed away, well, after twenty or so."
Jaime Lannister[src]

King Gerold Lannister, known as Gerold the Great, was a King of the Rock, possibly during the age of the First Men before the arrival of the Andals in Westeros.

King Gerold sailed to the Iron Islands when the ironborn began causing him trouble and captured a hundred of them. He promised to hang one from Casterly Rock every time the ironborn raided the shores of the Westerlands, and they eventually stopped their invasion.[1]

In the books
