The Defender of the Dragonwall is an inn in the city of Cairhien. It is owned by Master Cuale.


The sign of the Defender of the Dragonwall depicts a crowned man with his foot on the chest of a red-haired man and the crowned man's sword at the red-haired man's throat.


When Rand al'Thor, Loial and Hurin are hunting for the Horn of Valere, they stay at the Defender of the Dragonwall.[1] Rand and Loial leave the inn to walk around the city. While they are out, Darkfriends injure Hurin and steal the Horn. In their escape, the Darkfriends set fire to the inn.[2][3][4]
