In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Horned King, a.k.a. the Horned Lord, was an ancient King-Beyond-the-Wall who raided south of the Wall. A quote is attributed to him: "Sorcery is a sword without a hilt. There is no safe way to grasp it."
The Horned Lord lived about one or two thousand years ago.
