Ward of Lord Gyles Rosby
|Book(s)||A Feast for Crows (mentioned)|
The ward of Lord Gyles Rosby is a young male ward of Lord Gyles Rosby. He lives at Rosby in the Crownlands. His name has not yet been mentioned and little is known about him. Lord Gyles has no immediate heir.
A Feast for Crows
The ward of Lord Gyles Rosby refuses Lady Falyse Stokeworth and her husband Ser Balman Byrch when they seek shelter at Rosby on their way to King's Landing. Falyse informs Queen Regent Cersei Lannister that when Lord Gyles dies, by rights Rosby should come to House Stokeworth as her lady mother was aunt to his second wife and herself a third cousin to Gyles. Falyse voices concerns that the ward, whom she considers to be an ill-born wretch, may try to claim the Rosby lands and lordship.
After Grand Maester Pycelle informs Cersei that Lord Gyles has died, he tells her that Gyles had no children of his body - but he did have a ward. Cersei immediately dismisses the ward as not of Gyles’s blood and contrives to seize Rosby’s gold, lands, and castle. Pycelle begins to object, telling her again that Gyles had a ward, but she orders the hesitant Pycelle to tell the ward that Gyles’s dying wish was that all his lands and wealth go to King Tommen I Baratheon.
A Dance with Dragons
The Rosby inheritance is brought up during the small council meeting in the Red Keep's throne room. According to Grand Maester Pycelle, six claims have been put forward, but the council, led by Regent Ser Kevan Lannister, decides to settle the issue at a later date as they have more pressing matters to deal with. It is not mentioned if Lord Gyles's ward is among the six claimants.
