Anselm was a maester of the Citadel who served House Targaryen at Dragonstone during the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[1]

History

In 54 AC when a mysterious illness killed Maester Culiper and several of Rhaena's close friends on Dragonstone, Maester Anselm sent a raven to King's Landing with a description of the disease.[1]

When the small council realized that the description matched the poison known as the tears of Lys, it sent a warning to the castle. Anselm was found in the rookery with a dagger in his back. Rhaena's alienated husband, Androw Farman, poisoned his wife's friends in revenge against her, who he felt had belittled him.[1]
