Lord of Blackhaven[1][2][3][4][5] is a title held by the head of House Dondarrion, the ruler of Blackhaven in the stormlands.[1]


After a messenger delivered a crucial message in time to a Storm King of House Durrandon, the king raised him to lordship as the first Lord Dondarrion.[6]

In 37 AC, Lord Harmon Dondarrion helped Lady Ellyn Caron and Lord Samwell Tarly defeat the Vulture King, who had previously cut off his nose. King Aenys I Targaryen rewarded the lords for restoring the King's Peace in the realm.[4]

Lord Dondarrion, Selmy, Tarly represented the Dornish Marches at the Golden Wedding between Lord Rogar Baratheon and Queen Regent Alyssa Velaryon in 49 AC.[7] Six years later, Lord Dondarrion hosted King Jaehaerys I Targaryen and Queen Alysanne Targaryen at Blackhaven.[8]

Lord Simon Dondarrion was a noted musician and warrior who helped to defeat a Vulture King in the Third Dornish War.[9]

During the reign of King Daeron II Targaryen, Lords Dondarrion and Caron burned a Vulture King out of the Red Mountains.[6]

Ser Barristan Selmy was dubbed "the Bold" during a tourney held at Blackhaven by Lord Dondarrion.[10]

Lord Beric Dondarrion was betrothed to Allyria Dayne of Starfall.[11]

Lord Beric Dondarrion comes to King's Landing to participate in the tournament celebrating Eddard Stark's appointment as Hand of the King.[12] After the conclusion of the Hand's tourney, Beric remains in the capital. Eddard later appoints him the leader of an expedition to kill Ser Gregor Clegane, who has been raiding the riverlands after the capture of Tyrion Lannister.[13] Beric's party is ambushed in the battle at the Mummer's Ford, however, with many killed.[14]

Lord Dondarrion is named among the nobles King Joffrey I Baratheon insists must do homage to him or be named traitors.[15]

A Clash of Kings

Rumors have Beric as missing or perhaps dead,[16][17] yet he still raids Lannister foraging parties[18] and the Mountain's men actively seek him.[19]

A Storm of Swords

When Arya Stark, Gendry and Hot Pie are brought to Beric by members of the brotherhood without banners, they learn Beric is now a follower of the Lord of Light. It is revealed that Beric has been resurrected several times by Thoros of Myr through the last kiss.[20]

Three days after the Red Wedding, Lord Beric performs the last kiss on Catelyn Stark's corpse, leading to her resurrection as "Lady Stoneheart" and Beric's final death.[21] The name of Lord Beric's heir and successor has not been revealed.
