Bran’s Lament (Trumpet)

The character of Bran in Game of Thrones is often seen being carried by the gentle giant Hodor, an oblique reference, perhaps, to Welsh mythology. In the Mabinogion, the giant King Bran rescues half-sister Branwen from Ireland. In the fight he takes a fatal blow to the foot, so he instructs his men to cut off his head, leaving a lamenting Branwen to die of a broken heart.
