Aerys Targaryen VideoGame of Thrones - The Mad King Aerys Targaryen
Having noticed the deteriorated relationship between Aerys and Tywin, Lord Denys decided to withhold his payments to the crown, and instead invited the king to Duskendale to hear his petition for a new charter.
While Aerys had intended to decline the invitation, the king changed his mind when Lord Tywin advised him to refuse in the strongest possible terms.
Eager to demonstrate his ability to handle the situation without the help of his Hand, Aerys decided to settle the issue personally and bring the defiant Lord Darklyn to heel.
The invitation proved to be a trap, however, and Aerys walked right into it. Some of his escort most notably Ser Gwayne were killed trying to defend their king, Aerys was taken prisoner.
Outrage was the response to this news from Duskendale. He massed an army and laid siege to the town in what became known as the Defiance of Duskendale.
The situation remained in a stalemate for six months, with Lord Denys threatening to execute the king at the first sign that Tywin intended to storm the town.
In the end, it was Ser Barristan Selmy of the Kingsguard who staged a daring infiltration and managed to rescue the king. Lord Denys immediately surrendered and begged for mercy, but in his fury Aerys immediately had him beheaded.
His rage still not sated, the king next ordered House Darklyn utterly destroyed, along with House Hollard , which had sided with them.
Every last member of both families was tortured at excruciating length before being burned alive, with the sole exception of the child Dontos Hollard , who was spared only at Ser Barristan's pleading.
Ser Barristan later developed doubts about his actions at Duskendale, wondering whether Aerys's death in Lord Denys's dungeon and Prince Rhaegar's ascent to the throne would not have spared the Seven Kingdoms much grief.
The Defiance of Duskendale plunged Aerys deeper into his descent into madness. Deeply shaken by his imprisonment, he refused to leave the Red Keep for the next four years.
His jealous and suspicious nature deepened into paranoia and eventually outright delusions, seeing evidence of treachery everywhere.
Aerys's relations with Lord Tywin deteriorated even more rapidly. The king felt his Hand had wanted him to perish in the dungeons of Duskendale.
Aerys also no longer trusted his wife or his heir. In his paranoia, Aerys believed that Tywin and Rhaegar had conspired to have him killed by storming Duskendale, so Rhaegar would ascend the Iron Throne and marry Tywin's daughter.
To prevent such conspiracies between Rhaegar and Tywin, Aerys summoned his old childhood friend, Lord Steffon Baratheon , to court, making him a member of the small council.
Aerys publicly announced Steffon would go to Volantis , to find a bride for Rhaegar of "proud Valyrian blood". The fact that Aerys entrusted this task to Steffon instead of Tywin or Rhaegar caused many to mutter that Aerys intended to make Steffon his new Hand of the King, upon the successful completion of this mission, and that Aerys planned to have Lord Tywin arrested and executed for high treason.
Many lords took delight in the prospect. Fate had other plans. Lord Steffon's mission turned out to be a failure and on the return voyage his ship was caught in a storm and sank, just off the coast of Storm's End , in sight of his two eldest children, Robert and Stannis.
Aerys got the notion in his head that Tywin had somehow assassinated Lord Steffon. He even stated to Pycelle that he could not dismiss Tywin as Hand, as Tywin would have him killed then as well.
In the final years of his reign where Tywin was still Hand, Aerys never met with Lord Tywin unless all seven of the Kingsguard knights were present.
His paranoia and hysterical madness ever deepening, Aerys heard word of the talents of a certain eunuch named Varys. The eunuch was brought to court, and appointed as Aerys's master of whisperers on the small council.
The king reasoned that only a foreigner with no competing loyalties in Westeros could be trusted to alert him of potential threats.
The Spider, as Varys became known to the smallfolk, used the crowns gold to form a vast web of informers.
Varys was always seen crouching at the king's side whispering in his ear. Aerys also resolved the matter of Rhaegar's marriage.
Fearing to be assassinated, Aerys refused to attend. Neither did he allow Prince Viserys to attend. Rhaegar and his new bride decided to take up residence on Dragonstone , instead of remaining in King's Landing , which led some to mutter that Rhaegar planned on deposing his father and seizing the throne.
The birth of Princess Rhaenys , Aerys first grandchild, did not unite the estranged father and son. When Rhaegar presented the girl at court, Queen Rhaella embraced her grandchild warmly, but Aerys refused to touch her, stating that "she smelled Dornish".
Aerys grew brutal, capricious and increasingly fascinated with fire, especially the highly flammable substance known as wildfire which was said to be a cousin to dragonflame.
The pyromancers became a fixture at the king's court and Wisdom Rossart , who carried out the executions, was eventually named to the small council.
All the executions by fire aroused the king and, while he and his wife had slept in separate chambers for some years and avoided each other by day as well, Aerys would always claim his marriage rights after such an execution by fire, brutally abusing his wife in bed.
When a place in the Kingsguard became available, after Ser Harlan Grandison died in his sleep, Aerys decided to appoint Lord Tywin Lannister's eldest and only able-bodied son Ser Jaime as the youngest knight ever to join the order.
Tywin, and later his son Jaime, came to believe that Aerys had intended this not as an honor but a slight to House Lannister , meant to deprive Tywin of his heir and allow Aerys to hold Jaime hostage for his father's loyalty.
Unknown to Tywin, this scheme had originally been hatched by Tywin's very own daughter, Cersei , who had proposed the idea to King Aerys as she wished for Jaime to join the order as to prevent Tywin from betrothing him to Lysa Tully , as Tywin and Lord Hoster Tully had been discussing.
Aerys had made his announcement during court, and Tywin had thanked him openly for the honor the king bestowed upon his House. In reality, he had been furious, and pleading illness, Tywin resign his position as Hand and returned to Casterly Rock , with his daughter.
Aerys accepted Tywin's resignation and appointed Lord Owen Merryweather as his replacement, an amiable but not especially competent old man whose main qualifications as Hand were his willingness to throw lavish feasts and offer the king constant flattery.
The young knight Jaime would officially join the Kingsguard in a ceremony at a later date. With Lord Tywin now gone from court, the new focus of Aerys' mistrust was his own son and heir Prince Rhaegar , who had become wary of his father's behavior.
Aerys may have been mad and cruel to those he deemed his enemies, but he was lavish with wealth and titles to those who enjoyed his trust.
Those loyal to the king were Lord Qarlton Chelsted , the master of coin , Lord Lucerys Velaryon , the master of ships , Lord Symond Staunton , the master of laws , Varys , the master of whisperers , and Wisdom Rossart.
All enjoyed the king's trust and at court held great power and they had learned how to twist the king's madness to their own benefit, they had good reason to oppose Aerys' removal from the Iron Throne.
It fell to Grand Maester Pycelle and the Hand of the King , Lord Owen Merryweather the unenviable task of trying to keep the peace between the factions, Pycelle even dispatched a letter to the Citadel writing that tensions and division at court strongly resembled those before the Dance of the Dragons , Pycelle was fearful of a civil war between those loyal to the king and those who supported the prince would break out unless some accord could be reached that would satisfy both factions.
It is believed by some that the tournament was secretly arranged and financed by Prince Rhaegar , as a pretext, so Rhaegar could meet up with the great lords of the realm to discuss arranging a Great Council and the removal of his father.
The tournament was announced by Lord Whent shortly after his brother Ser Oswell , of the Kingsguard, visited his older brother.
Aerys at first was counseled by Lord Chelsted to forbid the tourney, while Lord Staunton went as far to suggest the king should outlaw all tournaments.
Lord Merryweather intervened by pointing out such events were extremely popular with the highborn and lowborn and that attempting to ban or outlaw tourneys would make King Aerys unpopular and strengthen Rhaegar.
Aerys decided to attend the tournament, the first time he left the Red Keep since the Defiance of Duskendale , he also decided that the tournament would be the perfect place to initiate Ser Jaime Lannister into the Kingsguard.
Aerys also hoped his presence at the tourney would win back the love of his people. If that was his intention it backfired horrifically. Since the Defiance of Duskendale, the king had not taken care of his appearance.
His fear of blades meant he would not permit his hair to be cut, or his nails to be groomed. His hair and beard were unwashed, matted and tangled, and his nails were yellow and grew nine inches in length.
His fear and paranoia of poison had made him thin and gaunt. The lords and knights at the tourney were appalled at what their monarch had become.
Nor was his behavior that of a sane man, going from mirth to melancholy at a snap of the fingers. His bouts of hysterical laughter, long silences, sudden rages and constant weeping made all present weary.
In contrast, Prince Rhaegar looked every inch a leader and warrior. Tall, clean, handsome, well groomed, this Prince was unstoppable in the lists, winning bout after bout.
The young Jaime Lannister said his vows before the king with the realm looking on, a cheer went up as the young handsome knight joined the Kingsguard , a cheer that Aerys, at the time, believed to be for him.
A mystery knight , the Knight of the Laughing Tree , competed in the tournament. Certain the knight had concealed his identity because he was an enemy of the crown, Aerys ordered Rhaegar to discover his identity, but the mystery knight could not be found.
Prince Rhaegar went on to win the tournament, and shocked all those present by crowning Lyanna Stark , rather than his wife, Princess Elia Martell , his Queen of Love and Beauty.
Upon arriving at the Red Keep, Brandon roared for Rhaegar to "come out and die. The king had Brandon and his companions arrested on charges of conspiring against the life of the crown prince, demanding that their fathers present themselves at court to answer for their sons' crimes.
When they did so, Aerys had them all executed without a fair trial, except Ethan Glover. Lord Rickard was burned alive by wildfire as Brandon was forced to watch, strapped into a torture device that caused him to strangle himself in his attempts to save his father.
Arryn refused, and raised his banners in revolt. Aerys's Hand at the start of the rebellion was still Lord Owen Merryweather , but he was quickly replaced for his failure to act to contain the unrest in its early stages.
Aerys next turned to Lord Jon Connington , a close friend of Rhaegar's, who promised him to deliver Robert's head. However, Connington lost to rebel forces at Stoney Sept in the Battle of the Bells and was exiled by Aerys because of it.
He ordered pyromancers to create a massive reserve of wildfire and secrete it around King's Landing , plotting to burn down the entire city and kill all its half a million inhabitants rather than allow Robert to have it intact.
Upon discovering the plot, Lord Chelsted confronted Aerys and, when he realized the king could not be dissuaded, resigned his position in disgust, flinging his chain of office at the king's feet.
Aerys had him burned alive. The Alchemists' Guild had enjoyed royal favor ever since the Defiance of Duskendale owing to the king's obsession with wildfire, and Aerys appointed the head of the guild, Rossart , his final Hand.
After the Battle of the Trident , in which Prince Rhaegar was slain and the royal army defeated, a rebel victory was all but certain.
However, he kept Princess Elia and her young children Rhaenys and Aegon with him at the Red Keep, believing they were necessary as hostages to ensure the loyalty of House Martell and Dorne.
Hours before the vanguard of Lord Eddard Stark 's rebel host would arrive, twelve thousand westermen under Tywin Lannister reached King's Landing and pledged their loyalty to King Aerys.
Varys advised the king not to admit them to the city, but Grand Maester Pycelle argued that the Lannisters should be trusted. Aerys made the fateful choice to listen to Pycelle, and opened the city gates.
The Lannister forces promptly began sacking the city in the name of King Robert. Aerys had retained Jaime throughout the war to ensure Tywin's loyalty, though up until that point House Lannister had been neutral in the rebellion.
Jaime would later remark upon the irony of the Mad King's belief that he could not be harmed if he kept Jaime close. Aerys commanded Jaime to kill his father, then gave Rossart the long-awaited order to ignite the wildfire caches and burn the city to the ground.
Jaime later suggested that much like his mad great-uncle Aerion the Monstrous before him, Aerys held the delusional belief that he would not die in the inferno, but rather would be transformed by the flames into a dragon , giving him the power to crush his enemies.
However, before the plot could be carried out, Jaime slew Lord Rossart and then King Aerys, preventing the orders from reaching anyone else and thus saving the entire population of King's Landing, while earning himself the epithet Kingslayer.
Robert Baratheon claimed the Iron Throne, and the reign of the Targaryen dynasty was ended. During the reign of King Aerys his small council had the following known members:.
Let him be king over charred bones and cooked meat. Let him be the king of ashes. I want him dead, the traitor. I want his head, you'll bring me his head, or you'll burn with all the rest.
All the traitors. You are my most able servant, Tywin , but a man does not marry his heir to his servant's daughter. Aerys was dead on the floor, drowned in his own blood.
His dragon skulls stared down from the walls. Lannister's men were everywhere. Jaime wore the white cloak of the Kingsguard over his golden armor.
I can see him still. Even his sword was gilded. He was seated on the Iron Throne , high above his knights , wearing a helm fashioned in the shape of a lion's head.
How he glittered! Aerys was mad, the whole realm knew it. Aerys was mad and cruel, no one has ever denied that. Somehow he had gotten it in his head that Prince Lewyn must have betrayed Rhaegar on the Trident , but he thought he could keep Dorne loyal so long as he kept Elia and Aegon by his side.
The traitors want my city , I heard him tell Rossart , but I'll give them naught but ashes. Let Robert be king over charred bones and cooked meat.
The Targaryens never bury their dead, they burn them. Aerys meant to have the greatest funeral pyre of them all.

After foiling his daughter Arianne's attempt to crown Myrcella the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, he reveals that he has long been planning the downfall of Tywin Lannister to avenge Elia and intends to ally Dorne with House Targaryen.
She serves as the third-person narrator for two chapters in A Feast for Crows , and will be the narrator for at least two chapters in The Winds of Winter.
By A Feast for Crows , she is dissatisfied with her father, believing him to be weak. Arianne seduces Arys Oakheart to win his support of Myrcella's claim.
The plot is foiled and Myrcella is wounded in the kidnapping attempt. As Arianne confronts Doran after he foils her plans, her father reveals that he has been plotting revenge on Tywin Lannister for many years and was waiting for the perfect time to strike.
Her fate is unknown. Ser Quentyn Martell is the second child and oldest son of Doran Martell. He is described as intelligent, serious, and dutiful,  though not particularly handsome.
On the way most of Quentyn's companions die. He and his remaining two friends, Archibald Yronwood and Gerris Drinkwater, are forced to become sellswords to reach Slaver's Bay.
Daenerys politely refuses the offer. Trystane Martell is the youngest child of Doran Martell. To ensure House Martell loyalty to the throne it is arranged that he will marry Myrcella Baratheon when they come of age.
Elia Martell was the younger sister of Prince Doran Martell of Dorne and was very close to her younger brother Oberyn.
She married Prince Rhaegar Targaryen , and bore him two children: a daughter Rhaenys and a son Aegon. Fifteen years before the events of the series, Rhaegar was killed in battle during Robert's rebellion.
When the capital city was sacked by House Lannister , she was raped and murdered by Gregor Clegane. Elia's brother Oberyn, however, believed Tywin had Elia murdered to avenge the slight to his honor when Aerys had his son and heir married to Elia instead of Tywin's daughter, Cersei.
Oberyn Martell is the younger brother of Doran Martell. He is a hot-headed, forceful, and lustful man with a quick wit and a barbed tongue.
He is a formidable fighter and is called the Red Viper because it is rumored he poisons his weapons. In A Storm of Swords , he leads a Dornish envoy to King's Landing to claim the seat on the small council on his brother, Prince Doran Martell's, behalf and obtain justice for his sister Elia Martell's murder.
She accompanies Oberyn to King's Landing when Oberyn takes the seat on the small council. After returning to Dorne, she is distraught when she hears Obara's statement on how the Mountain's death "is a start", as she sees the futility of it, and is worried about her own daughters' safety.
The older four however were born to different women: Obara from an Oldtown prostitute; Nymeria also known as Lady Nym from a noblewoman in Volantis ; Tyene from a septa serving the Faith of the Seven ; and Sarella from the female captain of the Summer Isles trading ship Feathered Kiss.
They are collectively called "Sand Snakes" in reference to their father's nickname "Red Viper" and the regional norm of giving Dornish highborn illegitimate children the bastard surname "Sand".
When they are implicated in various plots to agitate the Dornish populace, Prince Doran catches hold of their plans and orders Areo Hotah to imprison the Sand Snakes to prevent them from drawing Dorne into war.
In A Dance with Dragons , Doran releases the Sand Snakes and sends them on individual missions in his covert plot to bring down House Lannister in revenge for the murder of Elia Martell and her children during the Sack of King's Landing.
Obara is sent to accompany the visiting Kingsguard knight Ser Balon Swann to High Hermitage so he can hunt down and kill the rogue knight Gerold Dayne for the mutilating attack on Princess Myrcella.
Nymeria is sent to King's Landing to take the vacant Dornish seat on the small council in her late father's place and serve as an agent from the inside.
Tyene is sent to accompany her sister Nymeria to King's Landing disguised as a septa and gain the confidence of the High Sparrow.
The status of the fourth Sand Snake, Sarella Sand, is unknown, though according to Prince Doran she is said to be playing some sort of "game" in Oldtown.
Sarella is famous for her insatiable academic curiosities, and there are fan speculations that she is actually disguised as a male Citadel acolyte named Alleras "Sarella" spelt backwards with the nickname "the Sphinx", who debuts in the prologue of A Feast for Crows and helps Samwell Tarly when he arrives at the Citadel.
In the ending chapter of A Feast for Crows , Alleras is tasked by the departing Archmaester Marvyn to take good care of Samwell as the latter starts his maester training.
Areo Hotah is the captain of Prince Doran Martell 's guards. He was born as the youngest of a large family in Norvos. Areo is steadfastly loyal to Doran.
Its seat is at Riverrun. Its coat of arms displays a leaping silver trout on a field of rippling blue and red stripes, and its words are Family, Duty, Honor.
Bastards born in the Riverlands are generally given the surname "Rivers". He often quarrels with his brother Brynden because Brynden refuses to be married.
Years before the events of the series, he agreed to foster Petyr Baelish at Riverrun as a ward. When he discovered that Lysa was pregnant with Petyr's child, he sent Petyr away and tricked Lysa into drinking an abortifacient potion.
His health deteriorates rapidly over the novels; he eventually dies and is laid to rest in the river following the Tully tradition.
Edmure Tully is the third child, only son, and heir of Lord Hoster Tully. He is dutiful and wishes to earn his father's respect and protect the common people of the Riverlands.
However, he is also said to have a large heart and his decisions are often rash and emotional. He takes command of the Riverlands in A Game of Thrones because of his father's illness and is taken captive by Jaime Lannister.
He is rescued by his nephew Robb Stark , and upon hearing of Eddard Stark 's death he leads the Riverland lords in proclaiming Robb the King in the North.
He defeats Tywin in battle and unwittingly ruins Robb's plan to destroy Tywin's army. As amends for thwarting Robb's plan, he agrees to marry Roslin Frey and repair the alliance with House Frey.
However, the wedding is a trap and the Stark-Tully army is massacred, breaching ancient guest right customs. Edmure is taken to Casterly Rock, where he and the remaining members of House Tully are to spend the rest of their lives as prisoners to House Lannister.
Roslin is to remain at the Twins , and the pair is promised to be reunited after the birth of their child. He constantly quarreled with his brother, usually over Brynden's refusal to marry.
During one encounter Hoster called him the black goat of House Tully. Brynden mused that since their sigil was fish, he was the "Blackfish" of the family.
He accompanied Lysa to the Vale. In A Game of Thrones , he is upset over the Vale's neutrality in the ongoing war.
He resigns from his position and joins Robb Stark and his bannermen. He is appointed head of Robb's outriders and is a crucial member of the war council.
His efforts win Robb several battles throughout A Clash of Kings. In A Feast for Crows , Brynden surrenders the Tully seat of Riverrun to spare further bloodshed, but he himself escapes capture.
His whereabouts are unknown. He is called the Lord of the Crossing as the placement of his castle allows him to control who crosses the river, giving Walder Frey considerable strategic importance.
He is known for having over a hundred descendants and taking eight total wives. He emphasizes family loyalty and believes in taking care of relations, including those who disappoint him.
Since crossing the Twins is a necessity for Robb, Walder is able to negotiate marriage contracts between his house and House Stark.
The wedding is a trap, with Robb, his key supporters, and most of his army massacred during the feast, a direct violation of ancient guest right customs.
He then openly swears loyalty to House Lannister and his second son Emmon Frey receives Riverrun , the seat of House Tully, as a reward, with advantageous marriages for other descendants of his.
However, the people of the Riverlands refuse to support his rule, and a shadowy guerrilla war erupts that Walder Frey struggles to control.
House Frey is so large and factional that many of the Freys hate each other, aspiring to become Lord of the Crossing themselves.
Its seat is at Highgarden where they reside as the Wardens of the South. Its coat of arms displays a golden rose on a green field, and its words are Growing Strong.
Bastards born in the Reach are generally given the surname "Flowers". When the former rulers of the Reach, House Gardener, were killed in battle against House Targaryen , the Targaryens raised the Tyrells from stewards of Highgarden to Lords of Highgarden.
Because House Florent had a better claim to Highgarden, the Tyrells are often seen as "upjumped stewards" by the lords of the Reach and other Great Houses; however, the women of the Tyrell household are noted for being shrewd and clever leaders.
He has three sons— Willas , Garlan , and Loras —and one daughter, Margaery. He is described as a prematurely old and tedious man who lacks in political savvy and is thought to serve as the figurehead to his mother, Olenna Redwyne.
Mace then tries to fill the Small Council with his vassals, greedy for more power. He is a young, but highly skilled knight and jouster.
He is beloved by the crowds, and many young girls are infatuated with him. In A Storm of Swords , he questions Brienne and finally decides that she is not the killer.
When his sister Margaery is married to Joffrey Baratheon , he joins the Kingsguard. He volunteers to lead the assault on Dragonstone in A Feast for Crows so Cersei Lannister will send military assistance to defend his native Highgarden from the Greyjoys.
He successfully captures Dragonstone but is badly wounded and near death. By the end of A Dance with Dragons , he barely clings to life.
The character is a composite of the three Tyrell sons. The adaptation openly depicts Loras and Renly Baratheon as lovers, an interaction only obliquely addressed within the novels.
She is an intelligent, beautiful, and shrewd young woman, and despite being only sixteen, she is manipulative and adept at political intrigue.
She is described as a wizened and cunning old woman with a wicked wit and a sharp tongue, and is known for openly stating her opinion.
Randyll Tarly is the head of House Tarly, bannerman of House Tyrell, and considered to be one of the finest military commanders in Westeros.
He is also the father of Samwell Tarly. When word of the imprisonment of Margaery Tyrell reaches Randyll, he marches his army to King's Landing where Kevan Lannister makes him the new master of laws.
The Night's Watch is a sworn brotherhood of men who patrol the Wall. The individual members or "Brothers of the Watch" called "Crows" by the Wildlings   reject land and titles, practice celibacy, cut ties to their families, assume neutrality in politics, and never desert their assignments,   on pain of death.
Wildlings, also called Free Folk, are people who live beyond the Wall. Many move into the abandoned castles to defend the Wall. Mormont is considered a strong, resolute leader and commands respect.
He keeps a raven capable of speaking simple phrases as a pet. He leads the survivors to Craster's Keep, where he is killed in a mutiny.
Decades before the events of A Game of Thrones , he was sent to the Citadel in Oldtown on the orders of his grandfather Daeron II, who felt there were too many Targaryens, and became a Maester one of an order of scholars and healers.
He was later offered the throne of the Seven Kingdoms after the death of his father Maekar, but ceded the rule to Aegon and joined the Night's Watch.
By A Game of Thrones , he is elderly and blind, but provides guidance to the men at Castle Black , and is greatly respected within the Night's Watch.
Yoren is a recruiter of the Night's Watch. He then races to King's Landing to inform Eddard Stark. During Lord Eddard's execution, he finds Arya Stark and shields her from seeing her father's death.
In A Clash of Kings he disguises Arya as a boy recruit to smuggle her to Winterfell , but is killed by Lannister soldiers.
In spite of his self-professed cowardice, Sam is highly intelligent, resourceful, and loyal. Sam's complete lack of martial abilities and his interest in scholarly pursuits convinces his father that he is not a worthy heir and he is forced to join the Night's Watch.
Slynt is known for his corruption, but Robert was persuaded not to remove him on the grounds the next commander might be worse.
For this, Janos Slynt was made a lord and given Harrenhal. After Slynt repeatedly refuses Jon's orders, Jon publicly executes him.
Thorne was originally a Targaryen loyalist who, after the fall of House Targaryen at the hands of Ned and Robert , was forced to join the Night's Watch.
He harbors deep resentment at House Stark for this fate. When Jon arrives at Castle Black, Thorne personally torments, humiliates, and provokes Jon whenever possible.
Mance Rayder is a former member of the Night's Watch who later deserted. Since then, he has become known as "King-beyond-the-Wall".
His vanguard is defeated by Jon Snow at the Wall. Ramsay Bolton later sends a letter to Jon claiming that he has captured Mance and is holding him prisoner.
In the show, Mance Rayder is not saved by Melisandre and his execution is genuine. Ygritte is a wildling spearwife renowned for her fierce and headstrong nature, and is considered by many wildlings to be beautiful due to her exceptionally red hair , earning her the nickname "kissed by the fire", although Jon Snow considers her to be rather plain-looking.
Ygritte first encounters Jon in A Clash of Kings , when she and her band of three wildling scouts are surprise-attacked by a group of Night's Watch rangers led by the famed Qhorin Halfhand, among whom is a young recruit Jon Snow.
Most of her band is killed and she is personally captured by Jon, but Jon refuses the order to execute Ygritte because of her gender and later releases her in secret.
Ygritte speaks up for Jon when other wildlings raises suspicion towards Jon,  and again when Mance Rayder doubts Jon's sincerity since he did not inform the wildlings of Lord Commander Mormont's ranging.
Ygritte voluntarily transfers to Tormund Giantsbane 's group in order to stay with Jon, and they begin a sexual relationship as the wildling raiders attached to Thenn leader Styr are sent to scale over the Wall on Mance's orders aiming to attack Castle Black from the rear.
Ygritte continues to defend Jon, but when Jon defects at Queenscrown to return to the Night's Watch, she shoots Jon in the calf with an arrow on the run.
Ygritte later participates in Styr's attack on Castle Black, and is fatally shot in the chest by an arrow in the ensuing battle, later dying in Jon's arms.
Craster is a wildling who lives north of the Wall in a fortified homestead called Craster's Keep. A regrettable ally of the Night's Watch, he has nineteen wives, and when his daughters are old enough, he marries them, incestuously fathering new children.
It is heavily implied he sacrifices his sons to the Others. Whilst searching for Benjen Stark and his missing party, Jeor Mormont's expedition party stays a night at Craster's Keep, under strict conditions not to get involved with his wives.
This leads to a mutiny, resulting in his and Mormont's deaths. Gilly is a wildling girl, daughter and wife of Craster.
Craster is killed before he can sacrifice the child, and in the confusion Gilly flees south with Samwell. Val is the sister of Mance Rayder's wife, Dalla.
After the failed Wildling incursion, she is kept prisoner at the wall. She is described as an attractive woman. The mission is successful.
She does not appear in the show. The Lord of Bones also mocked as "Rattleshirt" is a wildling leader under Mance Rayder, known for his vileness and cowardice.
In A Dance with Dragons , he is executed, believed to be Mance since Melisandre glamoured him to take the appearance of the condemned.
He is in charge of the day-to-day running of the Night's Watch, dealing with issues of supplies, funding, logistics and communications. Fearing for the future safety of the Night's Watch, Bowen and several of his followers stab Jon.
Eddison Tollett, also known as "Dolorous Edd" for his melancholy temperament, sarcastic wit and pessimistic dry humor , is a squire from House Tollett and a steward of the Night's Watch.
He is one of Jon Snow 's closest friends at Castle Black. Edd survives the battle with the wights at the Fist of the First Men, and is among the survivors to make it back to Craster's Keep.
He is one of the men brought along as muscle to assist Lord Commander Jon Snow in escorting Janos Slynt for his execution. Tormund, better known as "Tormund Giantsbane" or "Tormund Thunderfist", is a famous wildling raider.
Waymar Royce is a young Night's Watch ranger who leads two other rangers, the equally young Will and Gared, a man in his 50s, after a group of wildings in the prologue scene of the first novel, A Game of Thrones.
Although Will, the scout, reports that he discovered the wildings lying dead near a stream past a ridge, Royce refuses to return to Castle Black, despite Gared's concerns about the worsening weather and Will's intuition that sinister is occurring around them, because he wants to confirm that the wildings were not merely sleeping.
He is killed by a White Walker, and turned into a wight, after which he kills Will, making him the first character whose death is explicitly depicted in the series.
He is played in the television adaptation by Rob Ostlere , giving Ostlere the distinction of being the first actor to be killed off on the show.
On this, Ostlere comments, "To be honest, when you do those smaller parts, you're just happy to see yourself up there because sometimes those things can get cut".
Varamyr is an infamous Wildling skinchanger, nicknamed due to his controlling of five other animals three wolves , a shadowcat and a snow bear.
Due to his skinchanging power, he maintains control over multiple Wildling villages via terror, and even aspired to be King-Beyond-the-Wall before joining Mance Rayder.
After another skinchanger, Orell, is killed, he also assumes control of the eagle Orell leaves behind.
When Stannis attacks the Wildlings army, Melisandre uses her magic to burn Varamyr's eagle, causing him to lose control of his remaining animals.
When the Wildling army is routed, Varamyr flees north together with a small group, hiding his real identity from them. The group eventually deserts until only the spearwife named Thistle stays.
Varamyr is stabbed by a boy when he attempts to take a squirrel-skin cloak off the dead body of the boy's mother.
While Thistle treats his wound, knowing himself is dying, he attempts to take over her body. However, her mind fights back hard against him, and subsequent hysteria inflicted on Thistle's body attracts wights to their position to kill them both.
Before Varamyr dies, his mind wargs into his wolf One Eye. The Royal Court at King's Landing is mostly composed of the King's small Council and his Kingsguard, the seven knights sworn to protect the king and his family.
All members of the small council, except for the Grand Maester, are appointed and dismissed by the king or The Hand. Varys, called the Spider, is a eunuch who serves as Master of Whisperers, the spymaster for the king of the Seven Kingdoms.
He is described as bald and fat, and he usually affects a fawning, effeminate manner. He knows all of the secret passages in the royal castle and his spies are found everywhere.
Pycelle is an elderly Maester, who for decades has served many kings as Grand Maester, the personal healer and scholar of the king.
Although he is intelligent and highly educated, his effectiveness as an officer of the court has been dulled by his age. He is secretly an agent of influence for House Lannister : he convinced King Aerys II Targaryen to open the gates for Tywin Lannister during Robert's rebellion, he allowed Jon Arryn to die to keep the true parentage of Cersei Lannister 's children secret, and would have killed King Robert Baratheon upon Cersei's command.
Upon learning this, Tyrion Lannister has Pycelle removed from office and imprisoned. In A Storm of Swords , he is restored to his position.
When Cersei is arrested, Pycelle seizes control of the king's council and offers Kevan Lannister the regency. Together, they begin restoring order to the Seven Kingdoms.
Pycelle is killed by Varys, who believes that he and Kevan's competent leadership threaten a Targaryen restoration. He serves as the third-person narrator for four chapters in A Dance with Dragons.
Although he is over sixty at the start of the series, he remains a remarkable fighter and is the most celebrated and respected living knight.
He has been a member of the Kingsguard for most of his life and served three kings. He remained loyal to House Targaryen during Robert Baratheon 's rebellion, but he later accepted Robert's pardon and held his position as commander.
He is dismissed by Cersei upon Joffrey's succession to the throne. He then reluctantly rules Meereen in her stead under the title the Queen's Hand until she returns.
When asked about the manner in which he was notified of his character's death, McElhinney commented, "It proves you should probably not read the books.
After the plot is foiled, Arys is killed. Ser Ilyn Payne is the King's Justice, the royal executioner. He is a skilled headsman, seldom requiring a second stroke to finish his charges.
Ilyn executes Lord Stark after his downfall. He serves as Jaime's sparring partner in A Feast for Crows. Qyburn is a former Maester who lost his chain for unethical experiments.
He is also rumored to dabble in necromancy. Queen Cersei Lannister allows him to experiment on the mortally wounded Gregor Clegane , presumably transforming Clegane into the monstrous Kingsguard knight, Ser Robert Strong.
He is killed by Gregor Clegane as they attempt to flee the Red Keep. The High Sparrow is a prominent member of the "sparrows", a religious movement formed during the War of the Five Kings and is a member of the Faith of the Seven.
When Joffrey tells Sansa of his plan to behead Robb Stark , she defies him by wishing to see his own head mounted there, for which Joffrey has Trant slap her.
Along with the City Watch he also murders King Robert's illegitimate children. When the Lannisters send their guards to capture Arya Stark, Trant kills Syrio Forel , her fencing Instructor, who protects Arya despite only being armed with a wooden training sword,  [S 39] as a result Trant is one of the names on Arya Stark's "list".
He is said to be skilled with the lance, morningstar, and bow and arrow. During the Battle of the Blackwater, he fights valiantly against the forces of Stannis Baratheon.
After learning of the attempted murder of Princess Myrcella Baratheon , Balon leaves to chase Darkstar, the man who made the attempt on Myrcella's life.
Drogo is a powerful khal, or warlord, of the Dothraki people, a tribal nation of horse riders in the steppes beyond the Free Cities.
He is an accomplished warrior and has never been defeated in battle. He is Daenerys Targaryen 's first husband. When the Lannisters send their guards to capture Arya, Syrio is killed by Meryn Trant, but not before Syrio dispatches all of the Lannister soldiers with no more than a wooden teaching sword, shattering knee caps and stabbing out eyes, so that Arya can escape.
Jaqen H'ghar is an alias used by a member of the Faceless Men, a society of assassins who follow a personification of death known as the Many-Faced God.
During the journey, he was locked in a wagon cage along with two other criminals, called Rorge and Biter.
He later meets Arya Stark , who frees him and the two others when the group is attacked by Lannister forces commanded by Amory Lorch.
In gratitude, he promises to kill for Arya any three people she names. After Arya extorts him by naming him as the third name, Jaqen reluctantly agrees to help her stage a prison riot in Harrenhal that overwhelms the Lannister garrison and frees the northern prisoners.
After that, Jaqen magically changes his face in front of Arya and offers to take her with him to Braavos. When she demurs, he gives her a Braavosi iron coin and instructs her to say " valar morghulis " to any Braavosi people should she need help finding him.
Later in A Feast for Crows , an alchemist with features identical to Jaqen's after the face change appears in Oldtown and bribes a Citadel novice named Pate to steal Archmaester Walgrave's keys which can gain access to any door in Citadel.
After Pate completes the trade, he dies of poison. Pate with a completely different personality later appears to greet Samwell Tarly when he meets Archmaester Marvyn.
Illyrio Mopatis is a wealthy and powerful Magister in Pentos. He is overweight, although in his youth he was a strong mercenary.
Thoros is a red priest of R'hllor from the city of Myr. He was unsuccessful and began to question his faith. When Robert Baratheon became king, Thoros became a frequent drinking companion of Robert's.
He is a formidable fighter known for using a flaming sword. When Dondarrion is killed, Thoros inadvertently resurrects him during the funeral service.
By A Storm of Swords , the two founded a band of outlaws called the Brotherhood Without Banners to stop the raiders ravaging the Riverlands.
Thoros is continually able to resurrect Dondarrion whenever he is killed. When Lady Stoneheart takes leadership of the Brotherhood in A Feast for Crows , he does not dispute her, although he disapproves of her motives and methods.
Ser Duncan the Tall is a legendary knight and the subject of several popular songs and stories. He is one of the main characters of the Tales of Dunk and Egg novellas.
Ser Duncan was appointed to his Kingsguard, and eventually became its Lord Commander. He perished alongside his king in 'The Tragedy of Summerhall', a huge fire at the Targaryen summer home, in which it is suggested he selflessly fought to save as many of the King's family as possible.
Hizdahr zo Loraq is a Ghiscari noble of the city of Meereen. With the Sons of the Harpy continuing to cause trouble in the streets, the Green Grace advises Daenerys to take a husband of Ghiscari blood to placate the Meereenese and recommends Hizdahr.
After keeping the peace, Hizdahr marries Daenerys as her second husband. Hizdahr tries to gain control of Meereen after the disappearance of Daenerys, but Grey Worm and his Unsullied refuse to obey him.
Yezzan zo Qaggaz is a slave-trader from the city of Yunkai, on the coast of Slaver's Bay, and one of the Wise Masters, the ruling elite of the city.
He bought Tyrion Lannister , Penny, and Jorah Mormont from the slavers, and gives them to the charge of his henchman, Nurse.
Yezzan was one of the few Yunkai lords who wished to honor the peace between Yunkai and Meereen. He later died of the pale mare that was spreading throughout the Yunkish siege lines, and several of his slaves used the opportunity to escape.
Tycho Nestoris is a representative of the Iron Bank of Braavos. Jon Snow negotiates with him for the use of his ships for a voyage and a loan to purchase food for the winter while the Night's Watch provides him guides to reach Stannis, who has left Castle Black.
The waif is assigned to teach Arya the tongue of Braavos and then how to detect lies. Meribald is a septon of the Riverlands.
