Lord Staunton was Lord of Rook's Rest and head of House Staunton during the Dance of the Dragons.[1] His given name has not been been revealed.


Lord Staunton was one of the lesser lords, bannermen or vassals that sat on the black council.[1]

After the sack of Duskendale, Ser Criston Cole advanced on Rook's Rest. Lord Staunton closed his gates, but could not stop the greens from burning his lands and attacking his smallfolk and herds. He sent a raven to Dragonstone when supplies ran low.[1]

Princess Rhaenys Targaryen and her dragon Meleys arrived nine days later. However, Aegon II Targaryen with Sunfyre and Aemond Targaryen with Vhagar joined the battle, killing Rhaenys and Meleys. Criston and Aemond then took Rook's Rest and put the garrison to the sword. Lord Staunton's head was taken to King's Landing and mounted above the Old Gate.[1]
