Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

During Melisandre's burning of the Dragonstone sept's statues of the Seven, Allard expresses his disapproval, but only in a low voice so not to be overheard by any believers in R'hllor. King Stannis Baratheon orders Allard to travel to Braavos and the other Free Cities to deliver a letter to their rulers. The letter accuses Queen Cersei Lannister of an incestuous relationship with her brother, Ser Jaime, denying the legitimacy of her children and asserting Stannis's claim to the throne of the Seven Kingdoms.[1]

Planning for the Battle of the Blackwater, King Stannis Baratheon's admiral, Lord High Captain Ser Imry Florent, assigns Davos Seaworth and his sons' ships a place in the second line of battle, on the dangerous starboard wing. Allard voices his belief that it is a place of honor, but Davos states it is a place of peril. Allard and his other sons look pityingly at him for his nervousness.[3]

Allard battles on Lady Marya during the Battle of the Blackwater, fighting in the naval combat on the Blackwater Rush. During the fight, the Lady Marya is caught in an explosion of wildfire, destroying it and killing Allard.[3][4]

A Storm of Swords

Davos, a survivor of the Battle of the Blackwater, remembers his four sons who died during the battle. He thinks that Allard's girlfriends will weep when they hear about his death.[4]

Davos asks Salladhor Saan if Lady Marya had managed to escape the destruction of the battle. Salladhor tells him no, and comforts him, saying Allard was a good man.[5]

Davos tells Stannis he planned to murder Melisandre because he believed she sent his sons to the flames, but Stannis tells him the fires were not her work.[6]
