Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Donnel gives his support to Renly Baratheon at the beginning of the War of the Five Kings.[1] After Renly dies at Storm's End, he goes over to Stannis Baratheon.[2]

Donnel fights in the Battle of the Blackwater. He becomes wounded and yields to Ser Elwood Harte. He is ransomed afterwards and bends the knee to King Joffrey I Baratheon.[3]

A Storm of Swords

During the first meeting of the new Kingsguard, Lord Commander Jaime Lannister mockingly calls Donnel "Ser Donnel the Constant" to his younger brother, Balon Swann, and suggests he add a weathervane to his shield. Jaime asks Balon how the latter will react when Donnel decides to swear fealthy to a fifth king, and Balon will have to chose between the king he has sworn to protect and his own blood, citing how he once faced the same decision.[3]

Quotes about Donnel

Renly, Stannis, Joffrey, Tommen how did he come to omit Balon Greyjoy and Robb Stark? He might have been the first knight in the realm to swear fealty to all six kings.[3]
