Harry Strickland In Game of Thrones Season 8
Harry Strickland is the lord Golden Company and also the head House Strickland. Harry Strickland is coming on the ship of Euron Greyjoy along with his Golden Company to fight for the Cersei Lannister. If we look at this character in the novel “A Song of Ice and Fire” George R.R Martin his real name is “Homeless Harry Strickland.”
Harry Strickland was raised with the company, as like his father and grandfather. His grandfather lost his land on the battle of “First Blackfyre Rebellion.” The main reason to enter this character in Kings Landing because Cersei Lannister wants to defend Iron Throne from Daenerys Targaryen. Because in last season Battle of Goldroad where Daenerys Dragons destroy a large number of Lannister soldiers.
If we take a look in season 4 where Devos Seaworth also advises Stannis Baratheon hire the company of mercenaries to say they were 10,000 strong and some are most aggressive skilled sword fighters in the land, But unfortunately did not happen. So as everybody knows quick and sharp minded of Cersei Lannister hire them to fight against the Daenerys Targaryen and kill her army.
