Gawen Swann was the Lord of Stonehelm and the head of House Swann during the reign of King Daeron II Targaryen.[1]

Appearance

During the tourney at Ashford Meadow that year, Lord Gawen's armor, cloak, and horse bardings were a riot of black and white as well, down to the stripes on his scabbard and lance.[1]

By 209 AC, Gawen was an old man.[1]

History

Lord Gawen's fool had named Prince Matarys Targaryen the "Even Younger Prince".[1]

Lord Gawen participated in the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC, where he challenged Prince Valarr Targaryen. Although he nearly defeated the prince in the first tilt, Gawen yielded after falling from the saddle in the second run. When Ser Duncan the Tall searched for a seventh knight for his trial of seven, Gawen ignored his call for help, laughing softly at a comment from Lord Pearse Caron.[1]
