A Clash of Kings

The Holy Hundred lose fourteen men fighting on behalf of King Stannis Baratheon in the Battle of the Blackwater, bringing their number down to eighty-six.[1] After the battle Bonifer and his soldiers submit to King Joffrey Baratheon.

A Feast for Crows

After the Battle of the Blackwater, the Holy Hundred join Ser Jaime Lannister's force, which is sent into the Riverlands to bring an end to the fighting. They are assigned to garrison Harrenhal when Ser Bonifer is named castellan in Lord Petyr Baelish's absence.[1]

Jaime thinks they should now be the Holy Eighty-Six, but recognizes them as well-disciplined as any soldiers in the Seven Kingdoms and thinks they make a lovely sight as they wheel and prance their tall grey geldings. He recalls that Lord Baelish once quipped that Bonifer must have gelded the riders too, so spotless was their repute. All the same Jaime wonders about soldiers who are better known for their lovely horses than for the foes they’d slain. They did not disgrace themselves in the Battle of the Blackwater, so far as he knows, but did not distinguish themselves either.
