Ser Jonothor Darry, also known as Jon Darry, was a knight from House Darry and a member of King Aerys II Targaryen's Kingsguard. According to semi-canon sources, he was the brother of Ser Willem Darry, master-at-arms at the Red Keep.[1]


Ser Jaime Lannister remembers Jonothor as an earnest man.[2]


After the Battle of the Bells during Robert's Rebellion, Ser Jonothor and Ser Barristan Selmy were sent to rally the remnants of the forces commanded by Lord Jon Connington, the Hand of the King.[3]

On the night that King Aerys II Targaryen burned his next Hand, Lord Qarlton Chelsted, Jonothor was standing watch outside the royal apartments with Ser Jaime Lannister when Aerys began raping his sister-wife, Queen Rhaella Targaryen. When Jaime stated they should protect her as well, Jon allowed that they should, but not from him.[4]

Ser Jonothor was one of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen's three Kingsguard who rode with him from the Red Keep to lead the royal army at the Battle of the Trident.[5] Before departing, Jaime pleaded with Rhaegar to command Jon to remain at the Red Keep and guard Aerys in his stead. In response, Jon snapped at his younger sworn brother and reminded him of his duty.

Jon was slain at the Trident,[5] cut down in the midst of the conflict.[6]

Quotes about Jonothor

I learned from the White Bull and Barristan the Bold. I learned from Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning, who could have slain all five of you with his left hand while he was taking a piss with the right. I learned from Prince Lewyn of Dorne and Ser Oswell Whent and Ser Jonothor Darry, good men every one.[2]
