Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Maester Frenken is one of the first to receive the letters from Stannis Baratheon declaring Cersei Lannister's children with Robert I Baratheon illegitimate. He sends his copy of the letter from Stokeworth on to King's Landing.[2]

Later at the Red Keep, Frenken treats Sansa Stark's wounds after she is beaten by Ser Boros Blount[1] and when she is injured during the riot of King's Landing.[3] He also brings messages to Tyrion Lannister, the acting Hand of the King.[4]

During the Battle of the Blackwater, Frenken treats a scared lady[5] and the wounded Ser Lancel Lannister.[6] After the battle, when the wounded Tyrion dismisses Maester Ballabar on suspicions of trying to kill him, Frenken takes up the task of seeing to Tyrion's recovery.[7]

A Storm of Swords

After the death of the King Joffrey I Baratheon at his royal wedding, Frenken and Ballabar perform the autopsy that refutes the theory of a suffocation with the pigeon pie. During the trial of Tyrion for the death of the king, Frenken is called as a witness for the prosecution, and he agrees that poison was to blame.[8]
