Gwayne Gaunt was a knight from House Gaunt and member of King Aerys II Targaryen's Kingsguard.[1]


In 277 AC, when King Aerys II Targaryen accepted the invitation of Lord Denys Darklyn and traveled to Duskendale, Ser Gwayne accompanied him as part of the king's small escort. Upon arrival, however, the king was taken captive, and Gwayne was slain by Ser Symon Hollard, the master-at-arms to Lord Denys, in an attempt to defend his king. His death was later avenged by his sworn brother, Ser Barristan Selmy.[2][1]
