Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Although he has raised his banners for King Renly Baratheon, Lord Penrose breaks bread with Ser Davos Seaworth when he comes as a messenger from his liege lord, Stannis Baratheon,[2] treating the Onion Knight courteously.[1] The banners of House Penrose are seen in Renly's camp beneath Bitterbridge.[3]

During the siege of Storm's End, Lord Alester Florent urges Stannis to bring Lord Penrose to the castle and hang him in order to force the surrender of Ser Cortnay Penrose, the castellan of Storm's End and old Penrose's son.[1] Melisandre instead sends a shadow to assassinate Cortnay.[1]
